Axis turn of October 23rd, 1942

At sea a second U-Boat flotilla was destroyed in a month with the demise of the 6th U-boat Flotilla off the coast of Labrador. In the Arctic Ocean, the small German fleet centered around the Deutschland and the Hipper squadrons engaged the Allied navy. The Admiral Scheer, accompanying the Deutschland, was damaged in the battle and the whole squadron returned home while the Hipper and Blücher from the second squadron continued their patrols. On the allied side, an unidentified French Battleship was also damaged.

In Algeria, the retreat and redeployment continue in front of superior US forces.

In Libya, the XVI panzer that was trapped almost freed itself, but the UK I Armor Corps resisted, barely, the combined assaults of German and Italian troops. OKH therefore considers the panzer corps lost as it could not possibly survive a serious attack in its actual shape. Plans are being drawn for a massive retreat in the sector.

Axis turn of November 6th, 1942

The XVI Panzer Corps surrenders to General Wavell after a brief negotiation. It was clear no help could come for the trapped corps after last week attempts at breakout. As the same time, Canadian and British troops encircled Tobruk and started the siege of the city defended by an Italian Mechanized Corps. Rome is assessing the situation and whether or not the city is worth defending.

In Algeria, the Americans seem to be trying to flank the Italians from the South in the difficult mountainous terrain.

Further North, the Hipper squadron made port at Narvik to resupply before been expected to resume its hunt in the Artic Ocean.

Axis turn of November 20th, 1942

All quiet on the Eastern front. Both sides seem content to wait for the winter.

In the Western front, Germany is slowly building up an Atlantic wall in France and Benelux while at the same time trying to beef-up defenses in Germany proper against air raids.

In Algeria, US tanks showed up on the Southern flank. At General Messe’s request, OKH dispatched a German division to reinforce the Italians.

In Libya, the Italian army is trapped around Benghazi but still holds Tobruk. Interpretation of radio traffic seems to indicate some concerns on the Commonwealth side regarding overextended supply lines.

Axis turn of December 4th, 1942

Over Germany the brutal bombing campaign continues, this time with more interference by the Luftwaffe making the Allies pay for it.

In Libya, British troops retreated, having overextended their supply lines. No attack on Tobruk was attempted yet, however the Regia Aeronautica launched an attack on the Royal Navy patrolling off the port, but with no notable success.

In Algeria Germany sent two more corps to reinforce the Italians. Marshal Rommel, with no effective command left, was asked to take charge of those forces as soon as possible.

The Hipper squadron continues its raiding in the Artic, now joined by the Deutschland squadron that came back after repairs in Oslo but is now operating independently.

Will do in two turns since the pictures for next turn are already taken. It will actually come perfectly since I had planned to post those once a year, except tech. But I will post tech too.

Axis turn of December 18th, 1942

In Libya, the battered Italian army mounted an attack on the British when it became clear that their supply position is precarious with neither Tobruk nor Benghazi in their hands. The attack failed but it did show that the British troops are indeed in no shape to mount a serious offensive for now.

During the offensive, the Eolo air division and its fame torpedo bombers launched an attack on the British fleet blockading Tobruk and managed to sink the whole London squadron composed of the heavy cruisers London and Sussex as well as 3 destroyers for escort. Only a lone destroyer from the squadron is believed to have survived.

In Algeria the rain put a stop to offensives actions and US troops even retreated a few miles.

In the Soviet Union the Red Army probed German defenses near Kursk and Kalinin but no serious operation was mounted yet. OKH suspects that Stava has ordered a testing of Axis defenses to plan a more serious offensive for this winter.

Axis turn of January 1st, 1943

A second winter on the Western front. Axis troops are feeling the cold once again, while the Red Army of 1943 is not the same one that was pushed aside in 1941. Stavka has ordered an offensive West of Moscow and North-West of Rzhev. Other smaller attempts also took place further south in Ukraine.

North-West of Rzhev, the quality of the German supply lines are very variable during the winter and after seen the battle effectiveness of the 1st PanzerGrenadier been greatly diminished by the Soviet attacks, the decision to retreat closer to the rail lines was taken.

In the Southern sector, things are relatively calm for now, but the commitment of the Red Air Force in the last few days is showing to OKH that the Red Army might be preparing something in this sector as well.

In Libya, the Commonwealth troops seems to be in slightly better shape, but so are the Italian ones. An offensive was organized to attempt to relieve Tobruk and managed to do so while dispersing the UK I Corps. OKW sent in its congratulation to General Graziani, who, it was learned afterward, was not involved in the organisation of the offensive, mostly organized by Lieutenant General De Stefanis of the XX Armor Corps. The exhausted XX Armor Corps was sent to Marseille for garrison duties while recovering, while the 20th VolksGrenadier Corps replaced it in Tobruk.

In Algeria, the rain is still making almost impossible any offensive actions by the Americans. A meeting in Lyon was held between OKW and Comando Supremo to discuss the African situation and all possible options in this theatre. The Italians are adamant that the Axis must hold as much ground as possible for as long as possible while OKW seems divided on the subject.

In other news, the Deutschland Squadron continues its hunt in the Artic while the Hipper squadron comes back to Oslo for refueling. However, OKW has asked OKM to reconsider those small raids whose effectiveness is relatively modest in view of a difficult oil situation.

Germany is fielding a modern land army. The Luftwaffe is doing its best to keep up and the U-boats are probably the most modern submarines in the world.

Respective forces on land are not yet overwhelmingly in favor of the Allies, but it is coming. However, in the air and especially at sea, the Allies are clearly dominating.

Axis turn of January 15th, 1943

In the Soviet Union, the Red Army attacked in three sectors, two bloody battles occurred in the North between Kalinin and Novgorod and one West of Kursk. Only the last one managed to push back the German defenders while up North, Soviet troops got a bloody nose, for now. General Konev was killed during the battle near Kalinin by a German artillery barrage while inspecting the front. It also seems that Stavka is preparing something about Petsamo, still in Finish hands.

At sea, the 4th U-boat Flotilla was essentially destroyed during its patrol, with its few remaining boats transferred to other units. Although it has been a relatively good hunting month, it is nonetheless the 3rd flotilla lost in the last four months or so.

Furious air battles were seen all over Germany with the Luftwaffe now engaging Allied bombers. Loses are high on both sides.

Axis turn of January 29th, 1943

The Red army continued its offensive. North of Velikiye Luki the XVII Corps was pushed but others managed to hold their ground keeping intact the integrity of the front for now. OKH hopes everything can hold for another 4 to 6 weeks when the rain should slow down the Soviets. What was particularly worrisome, is the fact the Red Air Force was particularly effective, often besting Axis pilots.

In Algeria, the Italian VI Armor Corps resisted an American frontal assault just West of Algiers, while further South, the American reinforced 37th division (almost double normal size) was pushed back by newly arrived German reinforcements.

In other news, the Hipper Squadron was hit while in Oslo by long range RAF bombers. It was transferred to Konigsberg with the Schleswig-Holstein (never repaired since its battle with the Royal Navy off Narvik in 1940). The Deutschland Squadron refueled in Trondheim, shadowed by a British fleet, and slip out by the fjords to resume hunting during the night.

Axis turn of February 12th, 1943

The Soviet continued their Winter offensive with some small progress North of Velikie Luki again but overall, the Heer held its ground. The Red army seems already to be losing some steam in some sectors.

After now a month on continuous fighting, the Italian VI Armor Corps was pushed back by the Americans and had to be retired from front line. The Axis front was reorganised just South of Algiers, itself reinforced by a second German division.

All other fronts were stable and saw no action worthy of mention.

Axis turn of February 26th, 1943

After more than two and a half years of fighting near the border between Egypt and Libya, the port of Tobruk was taken by the British pulverising the 20th VolkGrenadier corps. With the control of this important port, the British will be able to supply their continued offensive, hence the Italian army, no match for the Commonwealth one, decided to abandon Cyrenaica pulling back toward Tripoli. Italian authorities are clearly preparing to abandon Benghazi.

In the Soviet Union, in the only serious action of the period, the IV Panzer Corps was dislodged West of Moscow by a strong offensive, but a counteroffensive on the 25th Tank Corps re-established the front.

Up North, the Fins are more and more hard pressed and isolated with Helsinki’s port frozen for at least another month, blocking any aid and material the Germans are trying to send.
