This front is more and more critical for
the defense of the Reich. This turn, it was not
possible to do much damage, but some efforts were
made to ZOC enemy paras and fortify the front as
much as possible. In the north, the Russians left
Leningrad empty as well as the overall front line,
thus allowing the full Finn army to invade this
area. The loss of Leningrad cost 15 BRP's for USSR
that went to the Axis wallet which was very low for
this year's end (8 BRP's) ...
The best of our troops was made to
contain the US push in France. In Benelux, Antwerp
was reconquered but the real danger comes from the
central offensive in the west of France.
Last turn disaster is now almost
forgotten. The main objective was the capture of
Trieste which could deny supply to several armored
corps in the area. This operation was succcessfull,
as well as a surprising push toward south Italy by
2 INF corps.
