This will be by third AAR. I will be playing as allies this time. It will be played with the new large counters at zoom level 1, using zoom level 3 if necessary. As you know, it has been included combat values in large counters at zoom level 3 that can be really useful for better planning offensive actions but they also can help in defensive actions. So first of all some explanations about the new large counters values: as can you see in the image below the arrows show the values of the counter (Armia Krakow in the example) that correspond with the values showed in the unit window. So the 4-3-1 values (white) showed in the center of the counter just below the type of the unit symbol correspond respectively with the ground attack, ground defense and shock factor values showed in the unit window. And the value (light green) showed in the up right corner of the counter correspond with the survivability value. Yelow number at the left shows the current entrenchment level.
Back to the game. It is september 1, 1939 in Europe and Germany has just invaded Poland without a previous declaration of war. Danzig was occupied and a strong german army advances to Warsaw. Doug has launched a really overwhelming armoured punch against the polish capital that was attacked in this very first turn and it was reduced to 5 steps. There´s not much that the polish can do but to launch local counterattacks with minor consequences.
