Interesting...divisions in Finland. I normally keep corps. But that is a small front.

In the south the only thing that will save you is if you can keep the ports. If he is able to capture them...that will be an issue.
Supply just won't move fast enough. That is the issue I always have.
BUT he does have a few fast moving armor there.

Interesting...divisions in Finland. I normally keep corps. But that is a small front.

The reason for the divisions is I was worried about his fast moving cavalry. A corps can only cover 1 hex, but if broken down can cover 3.

He will capture the ports, as you will see.

JULY 4, 1941

I learned something. If you turn off the North Atlantic Convoy you won't get any resources or oil at all, not even from the South Atlantic. If you are reading this Alvaro, one of my requests for WarPlan2 would be to give the player more control over which resources to transport to his home country. For example, allow a player to turn off the transport of Oil from South America or Iraq or turn off the Far East Resources/Oil.

Oh well at least I didn't lose any MS this turn. This turn I shut off the South Atlantic Convoy to see what will happen.

Another Italian BB is sunk in Tripoli Harbour. That only leaves the Italian with 1 BB left and it is damaged. I doubt Hadros will expend the production to repair it; at least I wouldn't.

2 of Italian Corps near Tripoli were destroyed. Maybe this will encourage the Axis to evacuate the German armour out of Tripoli.

On his turn Hadros destroyed 6 more rifle corps and an army. So far anyway I have avoided losing any armour or mechanized.

The North before my moves.

And after. There was only 1 Axis armour in the North, so I rail 1 army South and otherwise defend with what I have.

The Centre after my moves. I am still worried. I deliberated for along time trying to decide between standing and fighting and retreating. My usual rule is if you have to ask whether to run or fight, RUN!! But this time I broke my own rule.

Sorry for the poor quality, I wish Matrix would increase the maximum file size by 50%.

The South Before my moves. Note the paratrooper in the Crimea and the scarcity of Russian units in the far south.

Hopefully he does not have really good supply there so not getting back a lot of efficiency.
Not being able to get to that city hex across the river sucks...

JULY 18, 1941

I think I got off lucky in Russia. During Hadros' turn I lost another 3 corps and an army, but no disasters.

The North Before my moves.

The Centre before my moves. As you can see, rather than driving across the river towards Smolensk, the German armour drove further into the swamp. I am not sure of his objective here; unless it was to cut off my corps in the swamp. If so, those poor guys may have saved Moscow.

The South after my moves.

This turn I received my first 2 infantry armies that I built on the first turn of Barbarossa. I know some people save up a lot of Russian production for a big first turn's build (I suspect Hadros did) but I prefer to build lots of large corps and make sure that all of my armour and mechanized are at full strength and upgraded to 41 Tech.

Another 6 MS and 1 escort sunk and 3 U-Boat hits. I forgot to check how turning off the South Atlantic affected my production (Damn).

Tripoli area before my moves. Hadros did not run away with his German armour.

Speaking of German armour, I count 9 in Russia and this 1 here in Africa for a total of at least 10. That is 1 more than I have in our mirror game. Remember that Hadros lost 2 armour in France. I know everyone is saying that something has to be done about the All-In/Big BEF strategy. But I am not so sure.

Egyptian Libyan border before my moves. I subsequently attacked the Italian Mountain Corps in the middle several times with may infantry to wear it down. I then added my armour to the attack causing it to retreat. I then moved my armour into the vacated hex and retreated it again.

I then made a risky 3:1 attack on the isolated Italian unit. I wasn't too worried because even if this attack failed I could move in some fresh troops for a final attack at much better odds. I was regretting that the RN was not available to provide shore bombardment though. But the attack succeeded on the first try so I was able to finish off the weakened mountain corps as well. Not shown is that I was then able to move my Canadian Infantry Corps through the breach and into the hex formerly occupied by the defeated unit. It didn't occur to me until after I ended my turn that I don't know if I left that unit an escape path.

One minor bug that crops up from time to time is that the ZOC of enemy units will stop impeding movement for a particular friendly unit. An example is below where in the top picture my moving unit was able to move through a friendly unit without having to pay the 2 OP ZOC cost of moving into the enemy's ZOC. I am not sure why this happens sporadically. I am sure there have been times when I have moved my units further than they are allowed because I have not been paying attention. To all my opponents I may have done this too, I apologize.

Note that the bottom screenshot shows that by moving the friendly unit I was moving through corrects the error and now my unit cannot move further than it should.

AUGUST 1, 1941,

5 more MS sunk and 4 U-Boat hits. The UK receives 130 production with the South Atlantic shut off. So I am losing about 40 production and saving about 5 MS sunk. Since those 5 MS cost 50 production (if I even had the spare shipyards to build them which I don't) I guess I am better off keeping the South Atlantic closed. Well at least until he moves his U-Boats patrolling in the SA to the NA.

Tobruk area Before and After.

A cautious advance.

Tripoli Area Before and After

The arrival of a German Mechanized unit puts a temporary halt to the British push on Tripoli.
