816 3/2/2020 7:13:00 PM Summer 1945 Axis Message Feel free to set up another. I'll play either side.
815 3/2/2020 6:53:00 PM Summer 1945 Allied Message Almost managed to get an Allied win. I was hoping for a Hitler Orders MO, which may have been decisive, but it never happened. My card draws were good; mechanised Soviet Fronts came early and I thought at one stage in the game, the Allies would win. What held me up was the time it took me to clear the Axis from Africa. It pushed back the Italian invasion by at least one turn. Taking Tobruk was a big strategic loss for the Allies and kept the desert war alive for the Axis.
Good staggered retreats through Russia and Italy as always, slows the Allies down.
I needed more corps in France to cover supply lines etc; in fact I was quite thin on the ground in the west at the end. Well played.
Should I set up?
