DECEMBER 5, 1941

7 MS sunk, but 5 U-Boat hits. The BOA is a lost cause and my U-Boats will not raid again.

No Movement in Russia and there will not be until the Spring unless the Russians launch a Winter Offensive (which I doubt they will).

But there is plenty of action in Libya where the Brits attack the Axis Southern Flank.

In response I had to decide between two different plans. The first was the low risk/low reward plan of simply pushing the UK Mechanized unit back. The second was the medium risk/high reward plan of striking towards what had to be the the British HQ. If I could destroy it than the whole British Army in Africa would be out of supply. I asked myself "What would Rommel do?"

I chose Plan #2.

So I used up 15 supply trucks on my attacking forces, moved in the small fleet (2 CAs and a destroyer) to provide shore bombardment and bombed the British infantry corps a couple times . I was a bit surprised that no British aircraft tried to intercept my naval moves.

Next I attacked at 3:1 odds and got a retreat result. Lucky yes, but I would have been fine if the Corps had held as well.

Next I moved in my infantry to the vacated hex and attacked the UK Corps again at 3:2 odds (not shown) to soften it up. I then moved the mechanized through and attacked at 6:1 odds. This was enough to retreat the infantry again. I was surprised that the shore bombardment occurred again. I thought shore bombardment used up OPs, but maybe not.

At this point my plans changed. I wasn't sure I would be able to destroy the HQ, but noticed that if I could retreat the UK corps SW of my Mechanized this would cut off the retreat route of the infantry corps to the NW. So I attacked this unit at 5:1 and got the retreat. I them moved in my remaining Mechanized, attacked at 4:1 odds (which ended up being 5:1) and destroyed the UK Corps. I have to admit that I got lucky with my attacks in forcing all those retreats. The odds were with me for most if not all of them, but bad luck on any one of them could have changed things. I have to assume that Hadros did not have his units set to hold.

Edit: Actually, looking at the map again I think I should have attacked the HQ as I probably could have destroyed it.

The Final decision was where to move my Mechanized, Southeast or South? I chose South which gave me an attack on another British Corps and another destroyed unit.

Final positions. Note that I moved in a fresh armour into Tobruk and the rest of the Italian Fleet.

I was surprised that the British did not attack the Italian fleet.

JANUARY 2, 1942

Libya before my moves (I forgot to take one after my moves).

Surprisingly the US didn't move anything.

The crucial battle. I must admit that my Afrika Corps just don't seem to be able to do anything wrong. Though if this attack didn't work I am pretty confident that I would have gotten him anyway.

That army in Africa is in trouble...to many units moved off the coast. Now they will be cut and mostlikey all will surrender crippling the UK for the next two years.

Most of my oppenents have the bulk of the Allied fleet here like you do...VERY different games.

JANUARY 16, 1942

The RAF bombs the Italian Fleet with little success. I suspect this is because his air units have low effectiveness or strength. Note the Italian Fleet was in the hex under attack, but I moved it back to Taranto before I thought to take these screenshots.

Another tough decision: Do I strike towards Alexandria, or do I destroy the British HQ? I believe that the 4 units between my panzers and Alexandria are all weak divisions. But my armour is nearing exhaustion, so I attack the HQ (after first ensuring it cannot retreat).

Nothing of note in Russia.

In Libya I destroy another UK Corps. I believe I will retreat back North to better supply and trust the desert to finish off the remainders.

FEBRUARY 13, 1942

2 British Mechanized Corps assault and capture Oran pushing it's Italian defender South. The Axis rush reinforcements to Algiers.

The British Units SW of the Quattra Depression begin their long journey home. The Axis units that were harassing them move back North to the coast highway.

No screenshots due to the Forum's technical issues.

Nice AAR. That's some exceptionnaly poor Allied decision making in the desert. And the Allied fleet could have made all the difference intercepting supply.

Egypt.

It will be interesting to see how many, if any, of those 5 British units disintegrate due to lack of supply.

FORCES AND CASAULTIES

Despite losing more units, Hadros has a 20% larger German force size in our mirror game. Part of that can be explained by the fact that I have built up the German air force and he has not. But he also built far more U-Boats and has spent far more production repairing them. I used to think I was never able to build up as large a German army as other players because I built lots of supply trucks. But in this game I have built far fewer than I have before. So I really don't know what the answer is.

British Force size is rather low. But they have over 100 more MS than what my British have in our mirror game.

German Production Capacity and manpower are looking good. Oil may be a concern.

Tech Advances.

Except for Italian close support (Big Whoop) no techs are ahead of schedule and a few are well behind. The big disappointment is German Heavy Armour, which from 1939 to late 1940 made rapid progress, but since then has advanced at a snails pace.

The Fickleness of Tech Advances. In April 1940 my Heavy Armour Tech was 65 Days ahead of my Assault Tech. A year later it was still 54 Days ahead. But in the 10 months between April 41 and February 42 my Assault tech has advanced by 115 days more than my Heavy Armour Tech.
