North Africa is turning into a really pleasant surprise. From what was originally a scouting expedition by the armoured brigades, I now have bagged two German divisions and Rommel’s headquarters! The Russian Front is still iffy, but stable, as reconstituted divisions are slowly getting back up to strength and back to the front lines.
The British Eighth Army has now advanced over a hundred miles from the El Alamein Line. In the process, Monty caught Rommel flat-footed. Since first contact was made three turns ago, I’ve destroyed a light division, a Panzer division, and captured Rommel’s headquarters unit. Already, it’s a significant victory for the Allies. I’m planning to make another strong push this upcoming turn or the next one. If all goes well, I might be able to recapture Tobruk before November.
