8th May 1942 - 138 PPs
Not really quite ready for Barbarossa but Manstein attackes with what forces he has, target Kaunas:
We've got the new Mechanised units close to the front now and deployed the Armour so everything will be in place soon. I will also start withdrawing from England now as the battle is won and leave just a few Korps to mop up, took Birmingham this time.
Oil is looking OK but more would be good, manpower will begin to be a problem by the end of 1943 I reckon.
28th May 1942 - 141 PPs - Fair/Fair
Manstein makes good progress despite lack of units and we've cut off 3 Russian infantry and can take the city soon.
Captured Plymouth and will have Cardiff and Liverpool soon, can then withdraw most of the forces including Paulus.
