In France some more ports liberated. If and when I can link up with the forces coming from Spain then there will be no supply problems for the allies. Without Spain the ports themselves in France wont support a very big army at all. Also there wont even be any partisans. That is a fairly big drawback on the idea of taking Spain as the Axis I think.

July 2 1943

In the southern part I try to rest a bit. I capture the mountain hexes leading into the hills and plains in Hungary. Budapest not far away now. I am still scared though that 20 arm and 15 inf could maybe inflict quite a bit of damage.

Everything looking weak and tired and I have lost 7 mobile units. But I might stand still now rest of July and then see if there is any steam left in August and September. Knocking out Rumania would be great of course. Think the Rumanian army is like 10 corps strong.

In France a bit faster then expected the forces from Spain joins up with the forces in northern France. In a turn or 2 the rail line will be connected and a lot of ammo, oil and SPAM beef and other stuff will flow into France.

The axis have scraped together a frontline kind of. But looking at it it consists of a lot of Hungarians, Rumanians and Italians. And since most people here know their history we all know it doesnt end all that well. There are 2 german mobile units facing 8 soon 9 allied.

In Finland the Finnish forces are in serious trouble again and I dont think there will be all that much German assistance this time.

In the south the struggle continues. Sources in Berlin have heard the leader ranting something about Victory or Death!
I lost another 2 mech corps so 8 or 9 lost now. I did eliminate an arm corps in return as well clearing up the pocket on the crimea. I have 400 on Soviet replacements but still the Soviets are down 400 points from 2250 to 1850 approximately.

My infantry on the flank looks really weak so does the German mobile units I can see but it is not over might be more pain coming. I have almost given up on Rumania must turn North and try to deflect the Germans. I have a last reserve of a 18 strenth mech corps and a 9 strength inf army that I will rail down next turn.

In the Ukraine the Soviets give up. Resilient resistance and counterattacks on the flanks have stopped the offensive. There will most likely be no conquest of Rumania or Hungary this year. Stalin shots some generals and enter a more defensive mode.

In France finally the supplies from Spain flows in and Patton starts to look for weak links in the front. Reports reach him that the Bourges area is held lightly by a Rumanian division and a Rumanian HQ. With tanks full of gas patton orders the Shermans forward and they sweep aside all resistance. In the north Eisenhower does his part by eliminating a italian inf corps and the two armoured wings meet up behind Paris creating a pocket of 4 corps. And the front towards Germany almost completely open. So history repeats itself almost .

In the South the Germans also enter defensive mode and retreat. Stalin for a moment regrets shooting those generals last turn and again orders the tanks forward hoping to knock out Rumania before bad weather arrives.

In France the pocket is eliminated and a lot of mobile units are staring on the fairly weak axis frontline. I hope to get at least some German/Netherland cities before the bad weather comes.

In the mediterranean the Italians contest my capture of Tripoli. How dare they . I probably need to send some more units here in the winter. Some UK divisions land on empty Sicily. Not sure if I will be able to keep it.

In the north the Germans continue to retreat and Helsinki occupied and the Finns sue for peace.

Looking at the casualties I dont think I have eveer seen so big German and Soviet losses in 43. Also More than 560 US Uk merchants sunk and 57 escorts crazy never seen anything like it

In the South the offensive in Rumania continues. Shatter one German mech corps.

I am next to both capital and oil with 2 turns to go. I might be able to do it.

Stalin declares Operation Liberate the Ukraine a success most of it back in Soviet hands now as the German scramble to the west.

Looking at forces the Soviets have lost a lot over the summer but German army also very small. The Axis will live to 44 but I dont think they will live to see 45.

In Romania the Soviets roll into Bucharest after stubborn resistance. That completes the objectives for the summer now buildup for next spring to end the war I hope.

A funny sidenote. The turn after my joke about shot generals (maybe not superfun but still ) Zhukov commanding the offensive in the south actually died. I did not see it because there was so much else showing in the turn report.

End of clear weather probably.

In the west the Ruhr area falls that will lower German economy a fair amount.

Skip forward a bit as not that much happening. In the Mediterranean the allies start to reclaim parts of it and on the eastern front the Germans retreat and the Soviets follow.

I think the Soviets have suffered way over 4000 losses and still manpower at 62%. Ill post force and casualties next turn.

Allied production at 1500 per turn Axis a bit over 400 so not a very even contest now.

My opinion, Axis got side tracked and invaded USSR too late with too little.

Never really had a good chance of damaging the Soviets, and still lacked punch in 1942.

In taking Portugal and Spain, the land mass the Axis had to protect was too large. I do think the allies are potentially able to invade in force to early.

So not enough units to protect the west and too few units to push the Soviets.

Addition - things went from challenging to bad with the encirclement of a large part of the German army in Russia.

The Axis had an amzing BoA. Have anyone seen numbers like it? 560 merchants and 60 escorts sunk .
This was unfortunately cancelled out by losing too many expensive mech/arm corps in late 41 and the whole of the summer of 42. The summeroffensive (you can see for yourself scrolling up page 5 and forward) was fought at a chokepoint at Rostov basically and too many German units lost to shatter results. This meant that the German army biggest size in the whole war was like 1470 which I think is not enough to withstand the allies later on.

But it was a very exciting game both 41 and 42 .
