BattlevonWar (Axis) vs Vokt (Allies)

Post by Vokt » Wed Sep 03, 2014 6:13 pm

Turn 84. March 18, 1944.

Eastern front Axis turn. SS units killed forwarded Soviet Guards corps in Poland. In the rest, kind of retreats and repairing of units. Kriegsmarine finally withdrew from Finland:

Image

Soviet turn. In northern sector, Red Army destroyed a german corps south of Kaunas and heavily damaged another one NW of that city. Furthermore, a Finnish corps was attacked by a Soviet armoured, forcing it to retreat. Soviet armoured units are getting good odds like 8:1 against axis infantry units. In southern sector, a German inf corps sustained massive loss when attacked by 3 Red Army units. 2 hexes SE, a German mech was killed and thus expanding bridgehead over Southern Bug river.

Northern sector image:
Image

Southern sector image:
Image

Spain Axis turn. Axis completely retreated from Ebro river line and now all units are around Pyrenees mountains. La Coruna and Valencia were abandoned. Intense antipartisan activity in southern France:

Image

Spain allied turn. Bilbao held the attack of Allies which were more successful when killing Italian mech north of Zaragoza. Australians entered emptied Valencia. Partisan near Madrid was killed:

Image

Sicily Axis turn. Italian subs are causing some trouble to Allied fleet in the Med and this turn they attacked American BB. All Axis units in the island were repaired:

Image

Sicily Allies turn. Bombings over German mech in Palermo were followed by the attack of US corps recently landed (Devers HQ). Axis unit held at low strength. Italian mech in central Sicily was finally destroyed. More Allied units landings.

Western Europe. It was fair weather in central this turn so British transported units in landed in Belgium whilst American units approached to Normandy and Britanny coasts. Heavy bombing on Rennes previous to the US landings halved Romanian unit guarding the city:

Finally, a shot of current casualties screen:

I would first of all, like to thank my opponent for the lovely and detailed AAR. The game is far from over but pretty much the Strategic Implications are fully revealed. 4 Fronts pulling the core of the Axis Powers apart. I have done my best after a rather poor 1939-1941 to build a strong tech base and powerful ground force but my Air Power and Navy has really hurt me. Plus the fact that my opponent is not making as many errors as I am. That is really what this will cut down into after a few more turns as I see just how powerful and capable the Allies are on the Western Front as I do not feel the Russians alone can run away with the game but anything is possible with the tactical genius from one opponent to the next.

I am looking forward to preventing him from sacking my Capitols and perhaps maintain healthy borders to give off the appearance that a diplomatic solution could be sought though in a faery tale but in game terms, possible. I would say I am at a 40-60 to win a partial victory...

Turn 85. April 7, 1944.

Eastern front Axis turn. Wehrmacht abandoned Kaunas and another Soviet Guards infantry unit was killed by SS panzerkorps unit that suffered rather high losses during the attack. Furthermore, Luftwaffe, took advantage of different weather zones and attacked VVS fighter air bases. Also, partisan in Lublin was killed:

Image

Soviet turn. VVS fighter units withdrew from Vilna and rebased in Minsk. Red Army took Kaunas and destroyed a German corps 2 hexes NW. In southern sector, Soviet destroyed halved German inf corps 5 steps and severely damaged another one:

Northern sector shot:
Image

Southern sector shot:
Image

Spain. Allies took Bilbao and left in very bad shape and unsupplied a nearby garrison unit. Allied air attacks were opposed by Luftwaffe fighter forces in southern France that suffered rather badly:

Image

Sicily. German mech in Palermo further weakened. Italian garrison killed.

Western Europe Axis turn. Allies spotted no German corps in France so it will be Axis minors and Italian units that will fight the landings. Italian corps along with Hungarian corps counterattacked British mech in Ghent, causing high loss on Allied unit. Luftwaffe was active and bombed 2 US transports. Considerable reinforcements sent to Rennes and Nantes:

Image

Western Europe Allies turn. Americans got ashore and brought more landing units. One of the US landed units linked with O'Connors mech in Calais surrounding the city. In Belgium, British counterattacked the Italians killing inf corps whilst more British units landed. Allied air forces severely bombed units in Rennes-Nantes:

maybe a good strategy for battle von war is retreat his forces from spain and stablish a defence line in germany-belgium-holland. if you can stop the western allieds for the winter 1944-45 maybe can win the game.. i see the russians does not have the strength to take berlin. ( escuse my english )

Turn 86. April 27, 1944.

Eastern front. In Axis turn, Wehrmacht retreated to Eastern Prussia in the north whilst it's sort of of holding in Southern Bug river. In Allies turn, Red Army advanced a little in Lithuania and made no progress in the south.

Western Europe Axis turn. Italy and Axis minors forces are launching counterattacks here and there with no air support and with little regard of losses. This way, Romanian corps from Liege unsuccessfully launched a counterattack vs the British in Belgium and Bulgarian corps in Liege wasn't lucky either when attacking O'Connor unit. Italians in Rennes attacked the Americans with similar outcome. But in Normandy, Romanians got to kill a weakened US corps, in the first Axis success to fight the landings:

Image

Western Europe Allies turn. Allied fared well this turn killing Hungarian corps in Ghent and 2 Romanian corps near Brussells. Lille was taken whilst Cherboug got isolated from main supply. Italian units near Rennes suffered badly:

Image

Spain. Allies entered France from the south and launched some airborne operations mainly targeting Luftwaffe air units. A depleted German fighter ended destroyed as a consequence:

Image

Sicily. In Axis turn, Italian subs remained very active even attacking DD's. In Allies turn, retaliation attacks on the Italian subs much weakened them. Palermo held vs Allied attack once more:

Turn 87. May 17, 1944.

Eastern front Axis turn. Axis retreated to Koenigsberg and probably to Wisla river line this turn. Still holding the positions along Bug river. In the south, Axis forces retreated from Southern Bug to Dniester river. Shots with Axis moves:

Image
Image

Soviet turn. Red Army entered Eastern Prussia thus activating German extra garrisons. Many upgrades and repairs were made. In the south, Red Army advanced through emptied territory left by retreating Axis units:

Image
Image

Western Europe axis turn. Axis units mostly made retreating moves and the few attacks made were rather weak:

Image

Western Europe Allies turn. British made mostly repairs of units and brought more units to land. British paratrooper was dropped to attack battered Italian corps, Allied unit taking the city. US mech took Rennes and 1 of the 2 German garrisons in Cherbourg got killed. In Normandy, Romanians are mostly done:

Image

Spain-Southern France Axis turn. A US paratrooper unit was destroyed after an Axis counterattack. In another counterattack, US leading mech unit got halved:

Image

Spain-Southern France Allies turn. Near Toulouse, Allied air forces astonishingly killed Italian armoured due to 2 strikes. In the Pyrenees, German corps got killed. Italian garrison close to Bourdeaux was killed Americans reaching Garonne river. Simonds mech in Barcelona finally linked with the rest of Allied forces in Spain:

Image

Sicily. Axis swapped units in Palermo. Later, Allies killed depleted German mech and battered Italian garrison. City should fall next turn.

Turn 88. June 6, 1944.

Eastern front Axis turn. Wehrmacht retreated to Wisla river abandoning Konigsberg. In the south, Odessa was abandoned and positions now are like pre-Barbarossa. German DD run into soviet sub in the Baltic with soviet naval unit reduced to 2 steps. Shots with axis moves:

Image
Image

Soviet turn. Red Army started to liberate Polish territory, reached the Wisla river and took empty Konigsberg. In the south, Soviets reached the Dnester river and so they are at the gates of Romania.

Northern sector image:
Image

Southern sector image:
Image

Western Europe Axis turn. Axis made no more counterattacks to landing forces in northern France and Belgium. Instead, defensive preparations are on the go along Albert Canal. In southern France, there was much more activity. Blakovitz's inf corps counterattacked US mech near Bourdeaux killing it:

Image

Western Europe Allies turn. Cherbourg held a really heavy Allied attack. Anyway, it's expected to fall on next turn due to current supply level 1 in the city. Axis units guarding Brussells and Paris were attacked by air units with not much efficacy. At land, Allied foreces linked north of Paris and in Orleans. In southern France, a Luftwaffe tac was destroyed in Limoges by a US fighter with the cooperation of a partisan unit. Allied units in the advanced to the Pyrenees, so almost all Spanish territory is conquered.

Northern France:
Image

Southern France:
Image

Sicily. Palermo was taken which means 3rd italian surrender city. Progress in central Sicily is slow but steady:

Turn 91. August 5, 1944.

Eastern front Axis turn. Axis retreated from Wisla river this turn. Rather expectedly, Soviet paratrooper in Posen was finished off:

Image

Eastern front Soviet turn. Red Army immediately occupied emptied terrain and made contact again with Wehrmacht units in Posen and in Lodz. A German corps 2 hexes SE of Lodz was killed. In Carpathians front a German corps and battered Italian corps were both killed. This allowed a soviet mech to enter into hungarian territory with Budapest at range. A soviet armoured at 7 steps in Carpathian mountains has Budapest at range too. In Romania a German suffered badly after a Soviet attack near Chisinau.

Poland:
Image

Carpathian front-Romania:

Turn 92. August 25, 1944.

Eastern front axis turn. Wehrmacht retreated to Oder river. Posen and Krakow were abandoned. All units crossed the river but Hoth's panzerkorps and a German corps on a Ostwall fortress:

Image

Eastern front Soviet turn. Soviets liberated the entire Polish territory this turn killing exposed Hoth's panzerkorps near Breslau. In Hungary, a German corps was killed in Debrecen. In Carpathian mountains, front is starting to crumble, 2 more German corps were severely damaged. In the south, another German corps was killed 2 hexes south of Chisinau:

Image

Western front axis turn. Dietrich paratrooper unit made a last stand in Toulouse US mech. Model's panzerkorps was deployed near Sigfried line to face British advance close to Swiss border:

Image
Image

Western front allies turn. Allies overran Axis rather weak defenses in Holland killing a German corps and 2 garrisons. Airborne operation launched in support of the offensive in Holland in which Arhem was taken. Further attacks depleted a nearby garrison. In southern France, Dietrich unit was destroyed:

Image

In Sicily, after a long campaing Allies have good chances now of kicking Italy out of the war. After an Italian corps in Sicily was evacuated to Reggio this turn, the now isolated Italian mech unit in Messina is not supposed to hold for long. Couple of turns ago, a landing made in Calabria peninsula cut Messina from main supply. City is being heavily bombed to lower its supply level:

Turn 93. September 14, 1944.

Eastern front Axis turn. Powerful German counterattack in Hungary killed Soviet armoured and left unsupplied a Soviet mech. Hungary was reinforced with 2 mechs that were railed to Budapest this turn. Germans also counterattacked in the Oder, causing rather high losses to 3 Soviet units (2 mechs and 1 armoured):

Image

Eastern front Soviet turn. Red Army responded to German attacks in the Oder and as a consequence a German corps and a panzerkorps ended heavily depleted. Intense air combats and VVS attack to Luftwaffe tac air base in Prague. Soviet battered units were retreated to Lodz and Warsaw. Romanians lost another corps and a garrison unit in Kosice were heavy battle is going on. Anyway, city held in Axis hands. Heavy combats around Kosice with a romanian corps and a garrison destroyed and a german corps with commander (Dietrich) reduced to 7 steps. Soviet mech close to Budapest was resupplied. In Carpathian mountains, a German forces are now even more weakened: they lost another corps unit and another one ended with only 1 step of strength:

Image

Western front Axis turn. Model's panzerkorps headed Nuremberg. German subs continued to occasionally harass Allied naval units in English Chanel, this time a transport in Cherbourg. In southern France, Axis units seem to have completed their withdrawal:

Image
Image

Western front allies turn. Allies entered Germany territory ffrom Holland taking Scholven synth oil plant and attacking Bremen. Norwegian SS unit was spotted in Hannover and Model's panzerkorp in Nuremberg. Further attacks to Sigfried Line in which a German garrison barely held an Allied attack.

The Axis are defending well in Italy and Russia, but seems to get overrun in France. It looks like the western Allies are the ones getting the honor to capture Berlin.

It's not easy defending as the Axis. You need to balance all 3 fronts so they collapse at the same time and not one before the other.

I have for a while assumed that Berlin was the cntral defence point as opposed to Hamburg.

I have also assumed we will see a counter attack of some force once the allies cross the Weiser

This player has really utilized his resources well. The Strategic Bombing has depleted me, I would say about 20% of PPs after a certain point.(if that is almost an Army Corp per turn by beginning '44 on, that is an entire Army for defense, which I planned on buying) Also the Spanish Feint, really caught me off or I may have just ignored Spain. Early in the game I put extra chits in Subs and Armor but that was a mistake. Fighters were put 2nd Priority

He has not won yet either :mrgreen:

Turn 94. October 4, 1944.

Eastern front axis turn. Strong Wehrmacht forces now deployed in Hungary are causing trouble to Soviets. 2 Red Army units (a corps and a mech) were killed in Hungary in Axis turn:

Image

Eastern front Soviet turn. It was fair weather in central Europe this turn. This allowed to spot retreating panzerkorps at 1 step in Prague and to kill it. A Ostwall fortress hex was taken by the Soviets this killing halved German corps guarding it. Luftwaffe took high losses this turn at the hand of the Soviets losing 1 fighter and the tac in Prague. Airborne operations targeting Luftwaffe units continued. These even allowed to take control Prague by 2 Soviet paratrooper units. Not only Luftwaffe suffered this turn but also Finnish air forces that ceased to exist this turn after fighter unit was destroyed. In Czechoslovakia, Kosice was taken by the Soviets, thus killing Dietrich unit there. In Romania, Cernauti was finally seized and depleted nearby German corps was killed:

Germany-Hungary shot:
Image

Romanian front shot:
Image

Western front axis turn. German counterattack SW of Sttutgart killed British inf corps. Bremen garrison was repaired and German sub torpedoed again in Cherbourg port:

Image

Western front allies turn. Americans entered Bremen this turn, Weiser river reached in several spots. Essen and Ruhr resource were taken either. Western Allies are also targeting Luftwaffe units with paratroopers and this turn they succeeded in killing a German fighter in Stuttgart and to round up, they took mentioned city. In Sigfried Line a fort was breached:

Image

Sicily. Messina fell this meaning Italian surrender:

Italy has surrendered and this means a boost on Germany production this meaning possibility of producing more units. Germany is still able to form a defensive line from Cologne-Frankfurt-Hannover in the west taking advantage of forest hexes and rivers there. In the East, I think situation is worse for the Axis.

Turn 95. October 24, 1944.

Eastern front Axis turn. Wehrmacht retreated from Hungary and only Finnish garrison in Budapest was left. In Romania, Cluj and Iasi were abandoned and Axis units made a general withdrawal south. Soviet paratrooper unit in Prague was rather mauled by a panzerkorps attack:

Image

Eastern front Soviet turn. Budapest was easily taken by the soviets that this way cutting all Axis units in Romania from main supply. Red army continued its campaing in Czechoslovakia attacking a SS mech close to Brunn and killing a Bulgarian corps. Referred SS unit ended rather mauled after being further attacked by air. Soviet units in the Oder made no offensive action but got repairings. German partisan and unsupplied finnish garrison in the Wisla were destroyed. In Romania, abandoned cities were taken but no attack was made. Shots with allies moves

Image
Image

Western front Axis turn. Wehrmacht abandoned Weser river line and retreated to east bank of Elba river. It was left a garrison in Hannover and units retreated from Norway started to be unloaded in Kiel:

Image

Western front Allies turn. Good weather in central Europe is helping the Allies indeed since it's allowing them to keep on moving fast in Germany. This turn, US entered Hannover, British seized Frankfurt and Elba river was reached. Airborne units were dropped in several spots with the aim of protecting the advancing Allied units. In Siegfried Line, a German corps was killed:

Image

Current Allied operations in Italy:
