Belated post from last week’s opening action.
After enveloping infantry units near the border, German units encountered unanticipated strong (note 10 strength unit) Soviet armor in the south. This is the beauty of the random/unknown unit picks at set-up.
Two over-extended German infantry units were eliminated by a Soviet counterattack. The other rules-mandated counterattacks in the north were defeated.
Don’t know if the Germans can create another Kesselschlacht in Turn 2 to eliminate the armored threat.
Here’s a impaired-photo summary of Turn 1.
