German Campaign AAR

Post by NightPhoenix » Sun Dec 10, 2017 3:51 pm

Welcome to my AAR of the German Campaign. I will be starting the campaign from the beginning, in 1939. Playing through all the German DLC's (currently 2 but there will be more) and turning it into something like a Grand Campaign. I'm not sure yet if i will be importing my core in between the different DLC's, i will decide on that later. Besides i will attempt to keep a healthy mix of forces that might somewhat resemble the state of the German army at the time, although i do need to actually win the scenarios, I'll try to balance it between fun and strength. The game will be played on Feldmarshall difficulty. I hope to upload at least each week, but I'll more or less will be doing this when i have time, so no promises. ;) Please keep in mind that my commentary only serves for entertainment purposes and does not in any way resemble my own opinion. Without further ado let us begin!

Once again Germany finds itself in a difficult spot. After re-positioning itself as a major power in Europe once again, despite the harsh terms forced onto it by the treaty of Versailles, several countries have stepped up to thwart our rise to power. Despite our success in annexing Austria and liberating Czechoslovakia, our plans to free Danzig and reclaiming the territory lost during the first World War from the Poles have not been so successful. With the Polish Army preparing for war, and with diplomatic options running out, we have no choice but to invade the country....

Although our initial stages in our invasion went well, we now find our troops struggling against the defensive positions around Mlawa. This fortified position North of Warsaw must be eliminated if we want to move on towards the Capital. Positioned behind the river and with heavy bunkers defending the city all around, this will not be an easy task. Luckily our friends of the Kriegsmarine are willing to shuffle around some forces to strengthen our core.

As our forces cross the river and assault the heavy bunkers around the city, we take many losses in the process. The superior tactics of our forces however show their worth. Bunker after bunker is being taken out, and the defenses around the city are slowly softened up. A small crack through which our forces can seep through is created, and a foothold is established on the other side of the Mlawka river.
