take your time and don't rush it, better to go slow and have units left, than rush in and lose units for little gain, use the terrain, apart from that, good luck

thanks for your quick reply. what triggers a victory in this scenario? do I need to repair the blown bridge? I have captured all the victory hexes. do I need to destroy all the USSR units? just a bit puzzling..... thanks in advance :roll:

So the problem really is that you feel like you matched the victory conditions but they do work properly ? Then please provide a savegame so we can have a look at it.

Hi Jerome,

to win at Stalingrad you do not only have to storm the city but cross the Volga in full strengh to occupy the all hexes that could supply a Soviet response. You still had four unoccupied hexes:

On how to win: it depends on your initial force and the way you spread them. Some general hints are (best heed them from the start of the campaign):

- do not leave weak units alone, open flanks invite enemy attacks with reduced defence values of your unit
- even strong units (10+) are vulnarable to this AI tactic, so try to keep a close front whenever possible
- Regiments and batallions should usually only support attacks or finish enemies/guard rear areas - trying to achieve more with them often leads to their loss
- try to mass your units on a main axis to achieve your goals. Spreading them across a map will usually slow you down and increase you losses. Concentration of force will carry the losses to the enemy
