Attrition is the east allowed only
minimal gains. Losses were also low for the
Russians. In the far north, the Finns were able to
advance far beyond their front lines as the Stavka
removed almost every units from this area. At the
end of the Fall 44 turn, Axis units were able to
maintain an exploitation proof front line, and
that's the most important thing ...
In the west attrition led to minimal US
casualties, but Paris and the Siegfried line are
still well behind the front.
The Med front led to a catastrophic
failure in the counter offensive directed against
Trieste. What should have locked the area, became a
vast fiasco, costing around 60 brp's and many new
corps called to the rescue in an attempt to secure
northern Italy and Yugoslavia.
