Turn 23. November 14, 1940.
German Move:
Italian Mech swaps into Tobruk. Corp in Benghazi sneaks past the naval blockade and escapes.
Image

Fair weather and Greece is Invaded.
I thought when I showed the two English CVs off the coast of Greece, that would signal the Germans not to invade. I didn't think Morris would, so I was a bit surprised, I had moved the CVs away and I was a bit unprepared for the defense of Greece.
Greece bombed by: four German TACs, one German SAC, one German Fighter and one Italian TAC
Image

English Move:
English bring in a CV and two Fighters to Crete. Garrisons also brought in on transports.
Image
Image

Empty Benghazi captured.

Turn 24. December 4, 1940
German Move:
bombs away, four German TACs, one German Fighter and one Italian TAC
Italian Navy actions: sub attacks troop transport in the port in Crete and the BB does a kamikaze mission of fighter suppression, fighter loose one point.
Image

Air war over Greece Germans win 3 English points to 1 German point and 1 Italian.

English Move:
Pull back on the Greek peninsula and drop off Garrisons.
Resistance is futile. I am not even sure if it is even worth trying to fight in Greece, all Allied ground troops are bombed to below red. Attacking bombers and ground troops loose nothing, all it seems to do is give Axis TACs and Axis ground troops experience, maybe the only benefit is that the Axis planes burn oil.

Three English BB's sink the Italian BB, which might be the only good thing we get out of this Greek campaign. So far 2 Italian BB and 1 Italian DD sunk. Also bring in the second English CV into the port of Athens.
Image

North Africa, attack the Italian Garrison pushing it away from Tobruk.

Turn 35. July 12, 1941.
Axis turn. Army Group Center (AGC) Main progress was crossing the Dnepr with axis Armor units killing a Russian Corp and damaging a garrison and cross the Dnepr.
Image

Kiev was taken.
Image

Luftwaffe (TAC and SAC) and two Finnish Corps combine to kill a Russian Corp and break out of pocket.
Image

Russian move:
A little victory for the Russians in Finland, Russian Baltic BB does Fighter suppression on the German Fighter and the Russian Air force takes to the air: Russian Fighter bombs escaping Finish Corp, Finnish Fighter intercepts 1-1 score, then Russian SAC bombs the escaping Finish Corp. Then Russian Corps attack; on the second Corp attack the Finish Corp retreats and it is pocketed again! Two more Russian Corps attacked the pocketed Finish Corp and leave the Finish Corp at 4 steps. Look below; so many Russian Corps in Finland! Though not a great defense of Mother Russia!
Image

On a side note; dogfighting has not started yet on the Russian front but the German Fighters are starting to achieve double veteran status. After the Baltic BB did fighter suppression by shore bombardment the German Fighter became a double veteran, (look at the bottom left corner.) I pity the poor Russian Fighters that have to dogfight that unit, it's bad enough to be behind in fighter tech and down 20-30 effective points, but now the German Fighters are two veteran steps above the Russian Fighters, ouch.

Russians Retreat at full speed in the rest of Russia, note Pskov was also taken by the Germans.

Turn 38. September 10, 1941.
In Finland Germans/Finns attack a Russian Corp next to the fort and leave it at 2 steps, for only a loss of 1 German step. Germans also bomb a Corp near the rail station at take off 4 steps.
Image

Russians do an all out attack on the two Finnish Corps. The two Finnish Corps receive a total of 9 Russian Corp attacks 1 TAC 1 SAC and 2 Fighters bomb the Finnish Corps, killing one corp and leaving the Corp near the fort at 3 steps. A German and Finish Fighters intercepted the bombers, air combat ensued with two Russian Fighters, which went 4-4. A fifth Russian Fighter attacked a German TAC and achieved 2-0 results. Russian BB did fighter suppression on the second German Fighter. A total of 2 Finnish Corps killed so far in Summer of 41 action and a third Finish Corp the one in front of the fort is on the front line and at 3 steps.
Image

The Germans Army Group Center do not like their current position so they decide to retreat to a more defensive position for the up coming winter.
Image

Russian advance to fill the void and recapture Smolensk.
Image

Russian infantry move forward towards a Romanian held Kursk.
Image

German Mech and Armor with four TACs make a forceful move towards Stalingrad.
Image
Image

Russian move: After losing all of the Ukraine and the Donetsk Basin the Southern Russian Army still have no fight in them and abandon Stalingrad, a shameful loss for the Summer of 41.
Image

Image

Overall position on the Russian front at the end of the Russian move
Image

The Royal Navy with their whole fleet siting off Gibraltar,
Image

are trying to gain some courage to fight the German navy that rules the North Atlantic.
Image

The English Army and Navy have done nothing in the Med for the whole Summer of 41, while the Royal Navy has had total control of the Med. Not a finger has be lifted to aid the Russians, The Royal Navy has just watched as all the convoys get sunk. A convoy has not made it through since Turn 22. October 25, 1940. The major achievement of the Royal Navy is that it has lost no DD's, cause they sit in ports.
