TR 42-45 1.5.1 - ALLIED vs Mark - T009/03Jul42


Sectors: Voronezh
The main objective is to hold Voronezh while stabilizing the front along the Volga. It's possible, but tricky, as the Russian reinforcements (60th, 62th, 63th, 7th Gds) aren't due to arrive for another week. I've had to order the 4th Army down from the north, and take the remnants of the 6th and 40th Armies before they're fully ready for action. The pocket south of Voronezh is what it is, a bad situation.

Sectors: Rostov-North Caucasus
The Rostov defenders are now cut off by the I SS Panzer Korps, which has led the charge into the Caucasus. The 44th Army has done a very nice job of delaying the river crossing, but with the III Panzer rushing over the Don to the north, more reinforcements will be needed from here to Stalingrad. But that's the story all over the southern half of the Eastern Front.


Sectors: Tobruk-Alexandria
Tobruk is holding, but I'm not sure how long it will last. No matter what happens in Lybia, the Egypt lines are getting stronger by the day. two more large divisions of Australians and New Zealanders have arrived in Alexandria.
