Zechi should be able to keep some units west of the severe winter zone and use these for mop up. I think you are in a bit dangerous position in Russia, because you still have large pockets of enemy troops behind your frontline. Be aware that severe winter can hit in two turns. If that happens, you w...

IMO the shore bombardement in the game is ok for BB units, the large naval guns, much larger than field guns, were very effective, especially against entrenchments. However the shore bombardement power of DD units is out of proportion, if they really represent destroyer divisions, mounted only ligh...

. It might be possible for Massina to launch a quick massive offensive in Irak against Axis forces there to deny him the oil. If he would accomplish that and then in time rail back to defense of Moscow, Stalingrad, Leningrad depending on where the battle is or even launch a counterattack, Max could...

I doubt Max would consider anything less than an ultimate victory as satisfactory. He probably wants Omsk via Iran/Iraq as well as Moscow. As for the Allied point of view, I agree that invading Spain is too slow. In the absence of Sealion, if I were Massina I would take advantage of still having Bri...

I am a tech junkie myself, so what I am curious about is how many labs Supermax has built. With his initial heavy losses in Poland and bulding 5 TACs I am thinking not many. But I could well be wrong. Time will tell (I'm sure Max won't). My prediction by the way is that Max will launch Sealion in A...

I agree with Joe. There is an unfortunate trend in the GS development towards patches with modifications aimed at making novel offensive strategies impossible on the grounds that historically these strategies were not attempted, or that these strategies will be used by players as 'automatic wins'. S...

I'm interested to see how it plays out. I don't think it's a sure thing if the British have their garrisons, without Axis air support and depending on how much of a presence the RN has and how they intervene. A garrison can usually withstand a couple attacks when in a city. The British army, includ...

Wales, Cornwall and Pennines plus cities like Liverpool, Plymouth and Cardiff are good places to defend before making a last stand in Scotland using Scapa Flow as the final supply source. How does one capture Scapa Flow? You can bombard it but with one hex (before amphs) it can't be invaded from th...

Interesting approach, aggressive as always. Nevertheless, I think it is quite risky and I have never seen that France falls before 1940. Even with five turns of fair weather in a row, this is even difficult (but possible) against the AI. If you get unlucky with the weather of the two October turns,...

You can actually re-enter the severe winter zone after the initial efficiency drop has happened and not get the drop. So it's better to move westwards to the right side of the line than standing just inside the bad weather zone. Whoa. Is that efficiency drop only applied the first turn when SW begi...

Tobruk

I never quite understood why Tobruk should be important. It has 1 pp and controls no oil or access to oil. Do you want it just as a base for invasion of Sicily/Italy later in the game? Even if you do plan these invasions, why not just build up in the Alexandria and Suez area by sending forces via th...

The main reason Panzergeneral lost USA to Supermax was mainly because most of USA was off-map and he couldn't use these resources or territory to stop the Germans. E. g. he was pinned at the US cities and had no place to place reinforcements. So it's important that the US player can actually get hi...

In order to have a chance to capture Canada you need to have taken Britain so you can rule the sea for your transports. USA's policy before December 1941 (with the exception of US Lend Lease) was that the war was an EUROPEAN affair. They wouldn't want to be involved in another conflict across the A...

In a GS 1.06 game as Axis against the AI, after an early Sealion I immediately landed in Canada, took Halifax, and when the US DOW'ed, invaded the US and after conquering the US, took Ottawa. Obviously Barbarossa was weakened, but with the Canadian and US oil and the huge PP advantage, I was able t...

Ok, this sounds reasonably if you do not intend to bring any GAR to France at all. Nevertheless, Neil transported already two GAR from Britain to France. I think it would have been better to transport these from Canada to France, even if it would take a little bit more time to bring them there, bec...
