First battle behind us and time is now for some tips (like I will doing):

- do not buy transport for basci infantry, they are mobile enough

- always reinforce your core with elite replacement

- do not attack if your predicted loses are higher than 2

- try to isolate enemy unit, cut it form supply


more will come ....... :)

For both Poznan and Danzig the objectives must be cleared of enemy units in a 2-hex radius. Sure this is true?

Yes I cleared all enemy, in DANZIG scenario I take Torun too, but it was not needed.


BTW I finished LODZ scenario MAJOR VICTORY there :) very good scenario no problem with bugs, but polish Cavalry do not want to attack my forces :) I'm not complaining :) I think that primary ojective shoud be set like capture and hold, becouse when I capture it and lost still have fulfille objective - it is capture only now.

German HQ want to defend bridges on bridges what is not aceptable, my plan is defend behind river and take bridges on last turn, but you will see that this plan will cost me Victory and I only manage Draw, but I take Draw and save lives of my troops :)

Polish troops attack mostly in southern region and only one infantry unit attack in northern region Erik please look at this scenario it need rebalance I think, I placed in north strong force in front of bridge (only in this sector) and polish troops never attack there, later I redirect my force to the south
