Just a quick review of the southern half of the Russia Front. It's been a quiet two weeks since the initial assault on the Yelets-Voronezh sector was repulsed. The Axis are still staging on the far side of the Don River. Once the push south and east begins, however, I'm expecting a tough fight to hold back the tide.
The fall of Tobruk is likely to create a better supply situation for the DAK and Italians under Rommel, but my position in front of El Alamein is incredibly strong. There are Italian paratroopers at the air fields near Tobruk, so that's something to keep an eye on. I'm shipping the VIII Corps down from England, while the I Corps is already in Malta, ready to arrive in Alexandria.
