TR 42-45 AXPO - Turn 28, 13 Nov 42


Stalingrad remains under constant pressure, but is holding relatively well. The problem, as expected, comes in the western/northern Caucasus areas south of Rostov. It seems this is going to be lost very soon. If it does, then I don't imagine Sevastapol will hold out very long without supply from the mainland. But the city under siege is beginning to buckle under heavy Axis attacks. So it might be any turn now.


Karelia - The buildup for Operation Snow White continues, as one guards army and one regular army are shipped to the assembly areas. I expect this operation to launch on time, likely 4 DEC.

NW Europe - The strategic bombing campaign focuses the British Bomber Command on Essen; the US 8th Air Force attacks Frankfurt.

Egypt - I'm entertaining the idea of landing on Crete. The sea transport available for Operation Torch has not been used, as the Moroccan supply situation isn't stable enough to jump right into western North Africa. I made a stupid mistake in my other running game (an older version of this sce) against Requiem72, invading Crete relatively early, without much air and naval support, while thinking I could do it using only the 9,000 sea transport levels. Needless to say, it failed miserably. But in this circumstance, I've built up the British army in Egypt to the point where it's feasible.
