ARMY GROUP NORTH - BALTIC FRONT 28 JULY 1940

Soviet front lines begin to crumble but Axis are short of armour. Talinn still holds out as the Russians are too weak to assault it with any measure of success.
Slows advance towards Leningrad now expected but the defenses there have being strengthened.

The Finns to the very northeast of the map are attempting to cut off the Karelian isthmus.

ARMY GROUP CENTRE - SMOLENSK FRONT 28 JULY 1940

Axis advance continues but the Soviets are conducting a decent enough defence. Stalin is throwing in nearly all his reserves to block any advance on Moscow by the Fascists.

However German motorised forces have swung around the Soviet lines from the North and the Russians could be 'pocketed' if they do not fall back.

Uman - Odessa Front 28 JULY 1940

Progress being made but the dash to the bridges at Cherkassy have been thwarted as the Soviets have got there 1st and are digging in rapidly.

The Odessa Defenses are intact despite heavy attacks by Axis Forces on the outer perimeter.

GRUPPE NORD 1 SEPTEMBER 1940

The attacks on Murmansk have ground to a halt as lack of air power is making the odds too great to take it by Storm + Stalin can shift just enough re-enforcements to the Port to allow it to hang on.

ARMY GROUP SOUTH 1 SEPTEMBER 1940

Army Group South finally links up with the Rumanian and Bulgarian Armies

- Panzers reach the outer defenses of Kiev but are too weak to attack the well defended City.

The defenses of Odessa are formidable and will be cut off and starved out rather than taken by storm.

SITUATION MAPS GRUPPE NORD 29 SEPTEMBER 1940




GN continues to attack Murmansk without success but the city is now cut off from further reinforcements. However it still has plenty of supplies on hand.

Further south the Brandenburgers and Para units are destroying the road and rail links to the beleaguered city.

The Swedes have been finally being prodded into action on this Front and are attempting an advance on Salla with a German Division on the way to prop them up if necessary.

ARMY GROUP NORTH 29 SEPTEMBER 1940

German forces are well across the Narva but the pace is slow as the Russians fall back slowly towards Leningrad...

Further south the Baltic armies have broken through from the north & the Germans from the south to 'pocket' the Russians around Velki Luki who are now cut off.

In the remote NE of the map the Finns are inching south around the edges of Lake Ladoga.

ARMY GROUP CENTRE 29 SEPTEMBER 1940

Is the net closing on the Armies of the Central Front guarding the road to Moscow?

German forces have surrounded one small pocket but bigger fish are there to net if the Wehrmacht can only just push a bit further East they might just net a haul of Soviet Armies!

The formidable defenses of Moscow's outer ring of fortifications awaits them though...

ARMY GROUP SOUTH 29 SEPTEMBER 1940

Panzer Army Ukraine under General Rommel comes crashing down from the north

- Objective Cherkassy!

If that falls all Soviet forces to the west [incl. Kiev risk annihilation


Further south both sides are involved in a mixture of set piece assaults and running melees but the Axis forces are slowly getting the upper hand.

The Odessa Front is still stable but the Soviets there risk being cut off.
