Soviet reinforcements mass in Fulda Gap; Berlin defenders destroyed


FRANKFORT--A Soviet-led Warsaw Pact attack on West German and Berlin continued yesterday, with Soviets massing reinforcements around Fulda, while expanding their gains in other sectors.

In Berlin, the French, British and American forces stationed to defend that city have been all but wiped out, cut down in a huge artillary barrage accompanied by attacks from both East German and Soviet divisions, backed by helicoptor gunships.


The Czech army has advanced to a line from Nurnberg to Linz, with a Czech division fighting off a counter attack from the American 8th Infantry division in Nurnberg.

Whereas the initial Soviet attack saw a massive air battle over Germany, the sky fell silent in the second day as the Soviet air force appears to be marshelling its strength for another aggressive push.


The North German plains continue to see less Soviet action, as the primary Warsaw Pact thrust appears aimed at the Fulda Gap and its American defenders.


In other developments:

- A Belgium division sent forward to disrupt the Soviet advance was caught by Polish reinforcements and cut to pieces on the east side of the Fulda RIver.

- In Italy, war protests errupted in most major urban areas. The Italian army - with some French support - has deployed in the cities to try to quell this uprising.

- In France, the Prime Minister announced yesterday his land forces must see to French interests and he has ordered their withdraw from West Germany.

Yeah ... a couple of poor die rolls, for sure.

Plus I don't think my esteemed NATO opponents have deployed in enough depth. They've got a solid line, but if I can punch one hole, they're in trouble.

Expect to see a three-division Warsaw Pact airborne drop on Turn 3.
