Osterode

There were actually 3 Kamf in this game, luckily I could post 2 in the same screen shot. The notes I took suggested that the weather was poor, however after going back and posting the screen shots I found that the weather was not nearly as bad as I thought, 75% Dry with a smattering of Rain and cloud.

Kamf 1 6 Tigers, 3 Arty and 1 infantry force a crossing of the Alle River at 23/4 and then clear the hights and take the town of Helligenthal. a splinter temporary head south to put pressure on Kackendorf, then rejoin the Kamf crossing the River Lyna and take Wallersdorf. 1 tiger goes around the lake to hit the units in Lichstahl and its AF after arty had hit the units several times. After Lichstahl fell the Kamf resupplies and starts the long drop to Eckensdorf and pushing the Soviet forces south of there back to wards K2 at Langguth and then after those forces are destroyed they join with K2 for the rest of the game.

kamf 2 5 tigers, 1 Bridging unit and 2 sIG's bridge the Alle river at 23/12 to attack Kackendorf and its AF, they then turn south to out flanf the Soviet forces between them and K3. They attck and sieze the crossing at 15/20 and wipeout all remaining forces north of the Lyna River. They then turn on Langguth taking on the soviet forces between them and K1. They join with K1 to take Osterode and then Lastly on turn 20 they take Arnan.

Kamf 3 cross the Alle River and take Wurtenburg, then down to Allenstien and AF. They turn south taking G Berting and destroy the Russian units against the crossing and forests there. They then go on to Grieslienen, and Kurken with its AF. They shake off an Air attack and then take Hohenstien, Wittchwidle and finally Scubersdorf and its AF.

Dv in 20/20 and 19212 points.

I have had to make the pictures a little smaller as the file will not upload.

Did they end up trying to assault you across the river since they couldn't see you because of the rain?
That would make the initial assault much easier since they would be putting themselves in extremely vulnerable spots for you to take advantage of on turn 2, otherwise your assault is totally Rick rolling them all. My assault was not nearly as quick.

You already possess Kackendorf on Turn 5 I was not able to secure it until turn 9.
Your assault is incredible, almost no infantry.

I was where you are at here on Turn 17 but my forces were not as unified and my pressure was not as strong as yours is on Turn 15.

And of course here it is. You are where I was at the end of the game, not as strong or centralized front, but essentially the same spot but you 3 turns earlier.
Success is secure.

Very well played my friend, thanks for posting.

Are you done than with the entire war?
Could you please do something similar with Budapest 45 as that was my other Marginal Victory, and of course I think everyone would like to see your success in Berlin.

Thanks again

Hi Goose,
I am sure I could do Budapest 45, my only concern is that the size of the map and the 5 kamf plus the 2 defending battles might mean that there would be a lot of maps, as long as you are happy with that I will see what it looks like and post if okay. I think I have every turn for every battle saved(sad but true, the joys of dodgie laptop batteries) By the way my mother in law is now almost 90% so your prayers helped !

Thanks

A 4 kamf game this one, I normally go all out here and destroy everything capturing all the Flags but take casualties in doing it for very little points gain and no additional equipment as you get the Maus prototype when you get the 3 units back and leave them for the turn. So this time I decided to just take all the crossings, get the units and then defend the crossings where onlt 1 tank can attack at a time. The right flank is the only risk as there is no river to defend.

Kamf 1, 4 Tigers, 3 Arty and an infantry take Mrocza and then blocking the crossing on the Vistula River at 16/3, then attack and take Bydgoszcz from the front and flank blocking the crossing at 14/6 and then hold the crossings against the soviet advances to the end.

Kamf 2, 4 Tigers, 2 sIG's and an infantry take Inowroclaw, then the crossing at Torun and then again hold the crossing to the end.

Kamf 3, 3 Tigers and 2 arty help K2 take Inowroclaw from the flank, then help K4 take Wloclawek and then they hold the crossing at 23/15 to the end.

Kamf 4 8 TigerII's, 1 tiger, 3 arty, 2 sIG's and an infantry Attack clearing the Soviet armour to their front and right flank. They attack and take Kujawski and then with K3 on the flank take Wloclawek turning Eat and form a defensive line from Wloclawek down to the cross road at 21/22, this moveable line hold any Soviet attack from that flank until the end.

I got a DV after 14/18 turns and I ended on 18063 points.

This is a straight forward game, I formed the core (no Kamfs this time) all along the West bank of the Oder River. Tiger II's and Tigers backed by heavy arty and sIG's along with 4 infantry make a solid wall along the main bank of the Oder to 13/16 and then along its tributary to 20/21. Any of the aux that survive the first soviet attack turn retreat back behind this protective screen, only a beat up Hertzer and 2 infantry make it!

After the main Soviet attack is destroyed on the crossings of the Oder ( turn 8) the whole line advances destroying everything in its path, the north end is heavily counter attacked by Soviet forces coming from the North West, while the southern end spreads out taking the airfield and destroying everything there. the southern flank then pivots and works it way north clearing block by block. the only issue is when the soviets spawn 5 IS2's which require Tac's, Arty, infantry and Tiger 2's to destroy them for some serious losses.


I got a DV after 16/22 turns and I ended on 16486 points. as a postscript, The 2 aux infantry not only survived but were involved in the fighting to the very end.
