TR 42-45 1.5.2 - ALLIED vs Mark - T008: 06.26.42

T008 06.26.42


Sectors: Yelets-Voronezh
With a renewed push on Yelets and Voronezh, the Germans have punched a hole in the line (1) north of Yelets. The reconstituted 48 and 3 Armies have been shipped to the front earlier than I wanted to commit them to battle. Their readiness is in the low teens right now, meaning they are going to face enemy fire with little chance of success. This is all meant to delay the Germans until a large contingent of fresh reinforcements due the next two weeks. The other problem areas are directly in front of Yelets and south of the city (2), where the armored op group has held, but by a hair. The 3 Guards Tank Army is standing firm in the center of the sectors, offering a foundation for the entire line. Near Voronezh (3), the 21 Army lost some ground to a concerted effort by three German infantry corps. The 18 Army is full of reconstituted units, similar to the 48/3 group to the north. No counterattacks were made this turn, but again, it's all about delaying the Axis offensive until reinforcements arrive in bulk over the next two weeks.
