Hi Chuck, thanks for the query. The answer is absolutely yes. I do this using a simple 'strategic supply' point (SSP) mechanic. You can only launch attacks during offensive rounds, and each offensive round costs 1 SSP. Offensive rounds must alternate with defensive rounds, representing the rest and refit periods between periods of intensive combat operations. The Axis get 4 SSPs in summer '41, somewhat less thereafter, but sufficient to reach and quite possibly take those intermediate objectives you mention (if we agree the Arkangelsk-Astrakhan line to be the ultimate objective) before the end of 1941. The Soviet ability to strike back comes in the form of reinforcements and replacements, and the steady decline in Axis quality and lack of SSPs, as the war goes on. These are likely to be telling even if Leningrad, Moscow, and Rostov/Stalingrad all fall, provided the Soviets manage to evacuate the majority of the industry located there and maintain their supply of Lend-Lease materials. This is a major assumption, for sure, but I think it's historically justifiable, or at least arguable.

Hi all. I have a corps/army level game at the working prototype stage, at least on Vassal, and thought you guys might be interested in seeing an introductory Youtube video. Let me know if you have any interest or constructive comments. Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1qQWT9RWpA

I'm looking for a strategy guide or just an article on strategy for The Russian Campaign. Anyone...Beuhler?

Thanks Bill. I haven't had that game for a long time.

Does anybody recognize this counter? I found it on my headboard. I don't wargame in bed.

In ToS combat is part of movement. There is no movement or combat phases, just an Operations phase which combines both. The non phasing player can use HQs to attempt to react when an attack is initiated. Its very fluid and its quite playable.

Just got a custom frame made for Trial of Strength, extra incentive for me to revisit the game.
