Well my first mission did not go so well. I missed it due to timing. I am learning though. Now my second mission is Army Group North. It is once again about timing. Let’s see if it comes through. As it stands, I am 0/1.
Here is the second scenario “Army Group North” divided into two Let’s Play.
Just a little background about Army Group North on Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Army_Group_North). I figured maybe link some information here if anyone is interested.
In preparation for Operation Barbarossa, Army Group North was reformed from Army Group C on 22 June 1941. Army Group North was commanded by Field Marshal Wilhelm Ritter von Leeband staged in East Prussia. Its strategic goal was Leningrad, with operational objectives being the territories of the Baltic republics and securing the northern flank of Army Group Centre in Northern Russia between Western Dvina River and Daugavpils–Kholm Army Group boundary. On commencement of the Wehrmacht’s (the German armed forces) Baltic offensive operation the Army Group deployed into Lithuania and northern Belorussia. It served mainly in Baltic territories and north Russia until 1944.
Commander in Chief 22 June 1941: GFM Wilhelm Ritter von Leeb
Its subordinate Armies were deployed with the following immediate objectives:
- 18th Army – from Koenigsberg to Ventspils – Jelgava
- 4th Panzer Army – Pskov
- 16th Army – Kaunas, Daugavpils
- Army Group troops
- Army-Group signals regiment 537

It was the 4th Panzer Army we got to play for this game.
