June 6th The Allies invade Denmark, another front to try to hold! Not much else to report this turn, Manstein is halted and loses an armour unit, Model reaches Moscow with his vanguard but not enough force to attack yet. The Italians are being pushed back now. The end is nigh, last desperate throw o...

May 17th 1944 Eastern Front extremely tricky now, Manstein makes barely any progress and has to halt as his flanks are looking exposed, Romanian and Bularians are brought up to help hold the flanks. von Rundstedt makes a brave drive on Konigsberg to some effect but Brest-Litovsk is proving a tough n...

April 27th 1944 The Danish peninsular is being flanked by a LOT of Allied transports, they've not tried to invade Denmark yet though. The Kriegsmarine has sunk many transports along with the Luftwaffe but there are just too many of them. This has given time for a few more German units to be brough u...

Allies declare war on Switzerland! March 1943 The Reich is going to collapse pretty quickly if I am not careful, the Western Front is holding up just about, Guderian is now in command: http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa117/davidjwest/Holland2.jpg Large invasion forces off the North coast, badly d...

February 7th 1944 Belgium holds and gives time for a defence of the Siegfried line to form. http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa117/davidjwest/Belgium2.jpg Not much to report in the East, mainly upgrading and reinforcing weakened units. There is the possibility of launching an assault at Moscow but...

January 18th 1944 The ME262 Jet Fighter enters service and so all front-line Luftwaffe units get upgraded. I am able to sell most of the labs researching air tech and this gives enough production to produce a new armoured unit, the first one for quite a few months. Air superiority in the West is unq...

December 29th 1943 The Allies declare war on Belgium, who join the Axis! http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa117/davidjwest/Belgium.jpg I guess I better garrison the Siegfried line then. Manstein and Rommell have made slow progress due to the snow and mud, but are closing in on Minsk - if they can ...

AAR - GS Mod - vs Computer Delaying the Inevitable II

Based on this AAR - http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=243672#243672 I'll modify the strategy somewhat. 1. Maximum investment in research, as before, but concentrating on Subs, Armour then Air. 2. Follow the historic schedule of events, conquer Poland, Denmark, Holland, Belgium and Fran...

September 20th 1943 Manstein seizes Kiev and pushes on to Gomel. The problem now is supporting units cannot keep up but with Winter coming it will be time to pause and resupply soon. http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa117/davidjwest/Kiev.jpg Supplies are critical and we are still unable to make up...

Model has done well and now encircles his objective.

Lvov has fallen to Rommel and Brest-Litovsk will fall soon, both Central Army Groups have taken more serious losses however.

July 2nd 1943: Model has had to slow down the advance as expected and this gives the Russians a bit of a chance to strengthen the defences around Vinnitsa, but our forces are also stronger now. Time for the final push soon. http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa117/davidjwest/Model4.jpg Manstein and ...

June 12th 1943 Model has had stunning success in the South, wiping out another Russian armoured division and infantry division and capturing Chisinau. Another Russian army is encircled and progress has been swift, but perhaps Model has left himself exposed. We will need to pause a while to allow the...

May 23rd 1943: Model captures Odessa, wiping out two Russian armies in the process, an armoured and infantry. The road North to Vinnitsa is clear, but he may wait to resupply before pushing on. http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa117/davidjwest/Model2.jpg In the North progress is slower, Manstein m...

Model's attack is fairly successful as he breaks through the Russian lines and over the river, destroying one Russian infantry unit and badly damaging an armoured and infantry unit. Losses are light so far. http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa117/davidjwest/Model1.jpg Further North, Manstein does w...

After waiting for the Winter to finish, operation Barbarossa will launch in 1943. The weather has improved and May 3rd 1943 is the day that the operation will launch. We've used the Winter period to resupply and upgrade our forces and the operation will have the following elements, with the initial ...

Ah, didn't realise that, thanks for the advice! We've knocked a few more Russian units out around Warsaw where the fighting is fierce: http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa117/davidjwest/Warsaw2.jpg And further south isolated another Russian: http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa117/davidjwest/Krako...
