Turn 85. April 7, 1944
Mud in Russia, Fair in the West

West, Fair Weather
German Move.
Fearing another counter strike on them, all German TACs leave France and are pulled back probably to Germany. The Germans repair all of their 15 Fighters to 10 strength, well except two. This is very bad news for Northern Italy, seems like the bombing will start next turn!

Image

Looks like the Finns are getting recalled to defend Germany.

Image

Allied Move
France: It is truly a sad sight, can any one say D-Day?

Image

Allied Fighters pull out of Northern Italy, do not want to get double attacked by German Fighters. American TACs, from Sardinia, heavily bomb the German ground Forces in Northern Italy. Advise for Allied ground troops in Northern Italy, dig in and say your prayers. I hope that the American TACs save them.

Image

Russian Infantry advance into Poland.

Image

Leading Russian Mechanized forces advance into Hungary and Red Air Force flies in for spotting.

Wow, it's rare to see the Allies being pushed back to the sea in 1944. I think that there is a real risk that you will run out of time to take all Axis capitals.

this is a classic Morris strategy - the Russians just cant catch anything and by the time they get to Germany the army will have returned from France :-)

D-Day and France certainly do not look promising! Can not even get Allied Air Superiority!

Turn 86. April 27, 1944
Regular Winter in Russia, Fair in the West

German Fighters double attack 5 of the Allies Fighters, with 10 German Fighters.
Image

So The German Fighters do not escort the German TACs to bomb Northern Italy. Maybe the German TACS are repaired?
Image

Allies repair their Fighters and place them on Sentry. Allied Air Superiority is not coming to France yet!
Image

Italy
Image

Allies unload more material into central Italy and Yugoslavia
Image

Russians advance with no opposition.
Poland
Image

Hungary

Turn 88. June 6, 1944

German move:
German TACs and ground attacks hammer Northern Italy, one para and two Corp are killed and a garrison is left at 3 strength.
Image

Allied Move:
Counter attack in Northern Italy mainly with American TACs from Sardinia. No German units kill but the SS Mech is forced to retreat into the mountains and left at 2 strength.
German Mech and TACs are to strong for the Allies, can not keep this up much longer before Northern Italy is pushed into the Sea !

Allied Mechanized forces move towards Toulouse.

Image

France, Looks like 1942, not the summer of 1944 !
Image

Russian move:
Russian infantry enter Warsaw.
Image

TAC and BB and Russian Paratroopers enter Helsinki.
Image

Russian Armour enters Budapest.
Image

Russians enter Bucharest.
Image

That's a Hat trick for the Russians !
Romania, Hungary and Finland all surrender this turn!

clean up

Turn 89. June 26, 1944

German move:
The Germans repair their Ground forces in Northern Italy and no TAC attacks either, giving the Allies a much needed rest in Northern Italy.
Image

Allies move:
Finish off the 2 strength SS Mech in the mountains.
American TACs keep bombing.
Planing to land one Corp near Bordeaux next turn, the best D-Day I can do.
Image

UK, two more Corps ready at ports.
Image

Poland, Krakow and Lodz taken. Germans Corps have maned the Oder line.
Image

Hungary, Prague looks tough a double line of German Corps in the rough.
Romanian oil, German para left at 1 strength in Ploesti.

One Russian and one Allied Fighter able to get a double attack on Two German Fighters leaving them at 1 and 3 strength.

Russian and Allied Air Forces move into Yugoslavia and Hungary in strength. The Germans will probably pull back their TACs and Fighters, which might give Northern Italy a second breather.
Image

clean up, about over

Turn 90. July 16, 1944

Image

Allies move:

Allies land one corp in France and drive up some Mechanized forces from Toulouse.
Image

Italy
Image

Poland
Image

Hungary, Air war over southeast Germany. German Fighters are on sentry, Russian and Allied Fighter reach out and do a single attack on all the German Fighters they can reach. More Russian and Allied Fighter brought in closer.

Turn 96. November 13, 1944

I think the Turn 95 should be a key point of this pbem ! Allies chose the last fair weather to make the breakthrough ! Since the coming turn have 95% possibility to be bad weather , Axis can not use its power to counterattack effectively ! It was really a smart strategy ! I did learn a lot from it ! :D

Yes, if it wasn't for the mud I think the bridgeheads would have been wiped out, the Germans were still very strong.
