    Yup, if like the board game the Axis minor armies simply vanish (what was left of them). Ploesti is still German and providing resources.

    Exo,... the lost bomber points were "allied".

    The Land - German pz losses were spread around but, yes, a good portion came fighting the allies in Brittany.

    Is it possible for Bulgaria and Rumania to switch sides in the game, like they did in history?
    I think IIRK that they just quit their armies disappear at the time of their surrender.

    Heavy casualties all round but really, ouch!, look at those German panzer losses! 9 Panzer divisions and 3 PzGrenadiers reduced!

    I'd like to think they were mainly lost against the Russians but actually I expect they were mainly due to lots of Exchange battle results in Brittany...

    Well now, are you having fun yet?

    Just reading that put a smile on my face, but I think Smiling Albert better wait and have a look at the map before he has a party.

    And it figures that the Americans and Turks would be enjoying chaos more than anyone else!
    The Turks lost two bombers?

    8/43 - Jah-zusssss, what a month

    Its going to be tough to repeat the the political and military anarchy that swept across Europe in 8/43,... short of the surrender of Germany, of course.

    A full scale partisan uprising in France, a massive German counter offensive in East Prussia, Red Army advance in the Ukraine, the fall of Sofia to the British, axis minors falling apart, the allies lose ground in Brittany but gain a bit ground in Italy and Yugoslavia, bombers ravage Germany production while the LW races back to defend the Reich, dogs and cats living together,.... total chaos.

    It will take some time to write up the the updates but the German 9/43 update should be ready tomorrow evening or so. In the meantime here are the loss reports.
    __________________________________________________ _________________________

    Germany: 2 U-Boats sunk, 3 Interceptors shot down, 3 x 6-5 destroyed, 1 x 1-5-1 destroyed, 1 Bulg 2-4 destroyed, 1 x Rom 2-4 destroyed. 2 x 13-8 reduced, 1 x 11-8 reduced, 6 x 10-8 reduced, 3 x 8-8 reduced, 1 x 7-10 reduced, 12 x 6-5 reduced.

    Ludwigshaven Mfg centre hit, Schweinfurt Rail centre hit, Kassel Rail centre hit, Nuremburg Rail and Mfg centres hit, Chemnitz Rail and Mfg centres hit, Leipzig Rail centre hit.

    Repairs to SB hits are secret (the allies have to figure/guess that one for themselves)

    Russia: 1 x 5-5 destroyed, 1 x 4-4 destroyed, 3 x 3-5 Mech Bde destroyed, 2 x (1)-10 AT Bde destroyed, 1 x 10-1-10 Arty Corps destroyed. 2 x 9-6 reduced, 1 x 8-6 reduced, 12 x 5-5 reduced, 2 x 4-4 reduced.

    Allied: CW 3-8 destroyed. 2 x CW 9-8 reduced, 1 x US 8-10 reduced, 3 x Turk 2-5-1 reduced. 2 bombers lost.

    In short,... with the exception of the US and Turkey, no nation can replace the losses suffered in 8/43 with only one months production. Armies continue to decrease in over all strength. Despite the bloodbath the German lines have not broken and the fight goes on.

    Exciting times,.... very interesting to watch the strategies unfold.

    Really?
    I better look into re-floating my WW1 alternate-history Naval Wargame.
    Had to let it go when I got busy at work, but it was also obvious that the game would go on for a year or more.... and I thought everyone would drift away.

    I need to see if my notes are still around!

    The game ends in IV/6/45 or when Germany surrenders.

    Just stubborn, I guess.

    BTW- do we have a time limit on this game?
    Like, by the end of this year or some such?
    Well, glad that it was nothing serious. Summer colds are the worst.

    Now that you are back to normal, I can reply with our CW usual quip:

    Time limit? Are you in a hurry to surrender?
