    Really? 3 armies and you couldn’t break our thin little line in Austria?
    Maybe you need instruction from the Yanks. They seem to be able to move forward most of the time.
    Or perhaps you should ask the back stabbers in the East how they do it.
    Even the French have made progress against our lines.
    You must have Monty in command down there. You know the guy who needs 20 tons of explosives to move 1 foot forward.
    Pfft the Brits what a waste.

    Are you wanting Axis Orders, or should we wait for a map?

    Wrapped up the month last and hope to be able to poast the German update by tomorrow evening at the latest. Will post the standard brief update along with losses this evening.

    Edit:

    Most of the fighting in the east centred on the lower Vistula where German pz and Red Army tank and mech forces battled it out along the seam between AG Vistula and AG Centre. Little was resolved except that the Germans abandoned Warsaw. In the west the US and French reached the Belgian border and briefly liberated Luxembourg City before being pushed back. AT the same time US and British parachute forces landed at Le Havre and Dieppe and assited the US forces across the Seine. In Austria three British armies opened an offensive that has battered the defenders but failed to break the line.

    Losses -

    German: 1 x 6-5 destroyed, 15 x 6-5 reduced, 2 x 11-8 reduced, 4 AP lost, 3 U-Boat lost
    Russia: 2 x 1-4 destroyed, 2 x 1-4 Mtn destroyed, 6 x 4-4 reduced, 4 x 5-5 reduced, 1 x 8-6 reduced, 1 x 9-6 reduced,
    Allied: 1 xCW 3-8 destroyed, 2 x CW 8-10 reduced, 1 x Fr 8-10 reduced, 5 Str Bmbr lost

    Month is coming to a close soon. German pz units stop allied drive into Belgium and retake Luxembourg City but US units have crossed the Seine below Paris. British attacks into southern Austria are making headway but slowly. The Red Army has pushed across the Vistula below Warsaw and have cleared the entire river line.

    Losses mount on all sides.
    Given the W Allies are happy to fight in Hungary, I was surprised our scout units in the area were so formidable . Didn't think we had taken such a city.

    I wonder what the Turks thought about that little maneuver?
    We prefer to follow from the front .

    Glad to hear we've taken Budapest, although first I've heard of it. We have our main effort in the north to squeeze the Fascists against the CW in the South and the US/French in the West.

    Quick update - Winter Battles 1944

    German pz units defeat Red Army attack east of Krakow but Russian tanks cross the Danube near Budapest. Meanwhile British troops engage the SS and press into southern Austria while US and French tanks tank Metz and enter Luxembourg.

    Tank losses on all sides are heavy.

    No, we are here. Just enjoying watching you guys 'puff your chests out'. We prefer action over words.

    Be sure and let us know if you ever find a tent to your liking.
    But since the Western Allies are behaving like good little puppets, you might be able to use them to sneak in somehow.
    Eventually.
    Going the long way, of course.
    And so much for 1943, what's the betting pool for 1945 looking like?
    I'm betting on Red.

    Hungary shall of course be Liberated from the iron grasp of the Facist occupiers.
