After 5 turns and despite numerous German attacks (many at 4:1 or less odds), the Russian National Experience level is still only at 31%. This does not bode well for Russian survival.

AGC. The Axis move to cut off the slow moving Russians in the Marshes. This is one problem with putting all units in garrison mode.

AGS. As expected the Axis isolate a number of Russian corps and this time even bag an army.

I was planning on invading Benghazi but I botched it. I moved my bombardment fleet in first using both OPs. I them moved in my invading corps using only 1 OP. But because it joined the fleet in the same hex it was considered to have used both its OPs and so was ineligible to invade.

Thanks for the AAR, always interesting to read.

I think you've garrisoned too many Soviet units.

I don't see the problem here, with the number of garrisoned units. Especially doing it north of Vitebsk up to Leningrad along the swamps and rivers. This is a natural defense line. You shouldn't need to move much there.

You are right, but you need to only use them on natural defense lines (not in the center).

I think everyone pretty much agreed that the Russians were too weak and as a result the game was unbalanced. To counter this Alvaro made two major changes:

1.The first was to double the PP cost of a unit switching from garrison to mobile mode. The effect of this was supposed to be to prevent the Axis from micromanaging this in order to have larger than historical numbers for Barbarossa. Yet somehow both MM and myself both managed to have the usual Axis forces ready (ie 13+ Axis mobile units) by May 41.

2. The second was to give garrisoned units an extra 2 Guns. The effect of this was supposed to be to cause more casualties and effectiveness loss for the invading Axis. So I am trying this to see if it works. So far it seems to me that my "garrisoned" Russians are not doing any better than MM's ungarrisoned units. And I believe I built a lot more infantry corps as well.

So I don't necessarily disagree with you, but the experiment goes on.

AGN. Rokossovsky is KIA and the Germans come close to isolating Leningrad.

AGC. The positions I am in now are similar to the positions I was in when Sveint isolated 1/4 of the Russian Army in a previous AAR. Hopefully, the same won't happen again.

Africa falling in 41 is BAD for the Axis.
You get enough LC you can knock Italy out of the war and the Germans have to pull back a quite a few units to stop the drive toward Germany...Once the US joins it will get really ugly for the Italians...

I suspect they have to fall some units back now.

I think garrisoning the weak Russian units is a requirement...they are there to just soak up German efficiency.
In the swamp...perhaps put your cavalry so they can move back and put up a ZOC, which is really what you want. Maybe a mech if you have too.
The armies...well I guess the weak ones might be okay...

He will definitely have to put some units in Italy. But I don't know how critical it will be in early 42. He already has Sicily crammed with units and most of the rest of Italy is outside air range.

Next time I will consider putting cavalry in the swamps. I usually put them in the North to keep Finland honest. But you may have the better idea.

SEPTEMBER 12, 1941

Over the last two turns 11 MS have been sunk; but the U-Boats have taken 8 hits. So not a bad exchange.

The last Axis units in North Africa surrender.

The Axis isolate Leningrad. My cavalry returns the favour by cutting some Finish units out of supply. The difference is that the Finns will be saved. Leningrad will not.

AGC. The Axis appear to be running out of steam (I hope). But Moscow is still at risk. I will probably need help with the weather.
