Wow nice additions..i like Collins . Nice Mark . I would agree on boosting Monty driving Rommel Out of africa!
But also Bradley Looks good. He was more defensive than Patton.

Have to find out more about the soviet leaders & horrocks / truscott . They all Look interesting

Will tell my thoughts on stats after holiday.

Ok some thoughts

Horrocks : blitz leader with 2-4-1/1 rating. Enter Spring 1943

Collins -  blitz leader with a 3-3-1/0 rating.  Enter Winter 1943

Truscott - 2-4-1/0 rating . Enter Winter 1943

Yeremenko: blitz leader with - 4-3-1-1 rating( or 3-4-1-1). Enter Autumn 1941 maybe 1939 in a global game far eastern front (Nickname: the russian Guderian)

Chuikov 2-5-0/2 rating. Enter Summer 1942?
I like this guy, also on the cover of tide of iron : Stalingrad

Are Busch and Kuchler really necessary?  I don't want to have a bunch of added average leaders that are just going to take up space.  Not all of the Allied or Soviet army or army group leaders are included in the game - not sure if it is necessary to add additional German leaders to the leader pool as well?

Hi Mark !

Well as i wrote in my first thread . Küchler replaced Leeb and continued the Siege of Leningrad .
Since we have Leeb i wanted the replacement also.

Busch replaced Kluge on the eastern front when he had an Car accidient and busch did a horrible job.
I kept Kluge in game because he came back but only for Short time and then hitler dimissed him on the western front. (Summer 44)
But busch aswell on the eastern front.

for me i don't see an overcrowed leader Situation .. If you look at the removal table there would be 3 Leaders less than it is now in post Summer 44

They both were "Generalfeldmarschall" -> highest Military Rank in german Army

For your consideration

The Counterpart to Paulus
He was described as one of the most aggressive field generals of the entire Russian front but lack of supply (Blitz ability & High initiative (3), lower strategic value (4))
From Stalingrad to Victory Chuikov had witnessed firsthand the german blitzkrieg tactics with guerilla warfare. (High defensive ability)


Place on builds Summer 1942
Chuikov, Yeremenko , Malinovsky , Rokossovsky

All these 4 soviet leaders should be added Summer 1942 rather than Autmun 1942.
as they were all part of the soviet counterattack & defense of Stalingrad  Autumn 1942.

3 September - 9 December

Hello guys!

Just wanted to give a Feedback :)

i tried it out with Chuikov now some times. For my opinion it works very well and makes sense to bring the these 4 soviet Generals in summer 1944 to give them a option to counterattack the german Forces in autumn 1942 (more historical). As these 4 guys really turned the Tide in Autumn 1942.

Chuikov as the Counterpart to Paulus did an outstanding job from Stalingrad to Victory and honored two times as hero of the Soviet Union.

Sometimes the axis are able to surround & eliminate soviet generals in double mechs so the soviet forces gain another outstanding general for future turns and don't have to deal with more axis generals than soviets on the eastern front. (Which makes no sense)

 
Maybe you want to try it out one day if you like.

P.S Please fix "Koniev" one Day = His Name is Konev :)

Hello Guys,

i had Holidays recently and had some time to read some stuff. I was totally suprised that i never heard of "Gotthard Heinrici"

He was never part of the Nazi Party but an very high skilled General of the Wehrmacht.

Heinrici is known an all sources i found as the best defensive expert General the Germans had in WW2.
In the middle of the war he fought 10 defensive Battles on the Russian front outnumbered by 12:1 and the russians had 530,000 casualties while his army lost 35,000.


If you never heard of that guy you might want to read his biography. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gotthard_Heinrici

He was a world war 1 General.. often wearing his ww1 old boots and regular soldier uniforms. He often disagreed with the  scorched earth  policy the nazis had so he had to give up command twice but he was too good with Holding the lines so they gave him back his command.  In the middle of the war his was under v. Kluge command but later he in Summer 1944 he leaded the 1st Panzer Division (Manteuffel the 3rd Panzer).

In the End of the war he defended sucessfully Berlin on Battle of the Seelow Heights with 760,000 men against 2,5 Million russians for 3 days.  Lost around 12,000 men and the russian twice as much & around 780 Tanks


What would it mean for the game?

I would like to see him in Summer 1944 where we remove Rommel , Bush & Kluge. He got a new command in Summer 1944 after 8 month of enforced retirement -  so it would work perfectly.

The Picture is rushed and only for Suggestion :-)

Feel free to give comments!
Have fun!

Ready for an 4th U-Boot Ace?


Reinhard Hardegen
Reinhard Hardegen  is a German U-boat commander who sank 22 ships, amounting to 115,656 gross register tons (GRT) sunk, making him the 24th most successful commander in World War II.

He is one of the most known & sucessful german U-Boat commanders.


I would say he is placed in 1939 scenario once 4th uboat is build (as it is in production at start)  in 1941 he goes to the 4th Uboat in Setup.

I think we will add Heinrici - but maybe as a 4-1- 0/1  instead of 2 re-rolls.  Model and Kesselring I think are the top best known defensive generals of the war.

Don't know if the Germans need another ace - you think so?
