I thought the Desert was tough, HA! I'm 6 games into LV's and I feel like I've been through an entire campaign, already!! 2 MV, 1 DV, & 2 Draws has me barely hanging on...
I won't give away anything, suffice it to say...I had just screwed up and fought my way to a draw, and was pretty sure I would have to fight my way back into things. Hmmmmm, a delay action..okay, WHOA!! There aren't a lot of units to defend this wide a front. Maybe reinforcements (I pray!) a few turns into the game. Then I start the game. Okay, infantry to the South, Armor probing in 3 spots. Hm, man, lot of armor. No, a LOT of armor, what, 3..no maybe 50...uhuh 75 or more armored units. Phew, here comes some armor support, and 4 88's, THANK GOD! This will be like holding back a flood....
Anyway, you get the idea...this was THE TOUGHEST delay action I have had to date. Man, this was the hardest scenario in the campaign so far. I used everything I had available to beat back the armor. I'm proud to say they made it to the bridge, and that's it! I decided early on to keep a platoon of PzIV's & one of PzII's on my left, and it was a life saver. I lost 3 Pz's that were supporting the defense of one of the bridges to fire from KV1's & T-34's, and if it hadn't been for the support I had on my left, I would have been mopped up. I had to fight for every inch of ground, I wonder if it will be like this every time........
I ain't no golden boy,
ain't no Grecian dancer,
and I ain't no loud mouth cowboy from the West...
I'm not the kind of man with all the answers, but I surely know the songs that suit me best.... LL
