Limited advance paying dividends
So after my first attempt at the grand campaign, and losing 6 panzer divisions to blizzard, I decided to try a new strategy, one of limited advance.  In the north AGN advanced to Leningrad, I failed to take the main city due to messing around trying to capture too many Russian units.  In the center AGC advanced to the Dneper and began to dig in around the last week of September.  In the south AGS capture Kiev and Odessa and also dug in along that line around the same time.  The results?, come the blizzard 90% of my units were dug in to level 2 or 3 and the others at level 1.  All Russian attacks have failed to the game date of 15 January, with a total of 4 divisions being pushed back a single hex in that time frame but no breakthroughs have occurred.  Infantry losses to cold are minimal, I am losing about 20K per turn but getting back 40K.  Come spring I should be in a great position to capture Leningrad and continue the attack.  Of course there are going to be far more Red units to fight but I will once again conduct an encirclement battle.  To date I have destroyed about 169 divisions and I have about 40 more cut off north of Riga, I have not lost a unit yet.  Even in the blizzard I am able to attack and force them to surrender.

I guess I am sort of conducting a "bite and hold" battle.

Well done! With each game more and more start coming together. 

Leningrad ; Use HQ buildup and attached Pioneers to Infantry units. Take the 4th Panzer to do an flank around the lakes to isolate the city by taking the ports Kobona (85,15), Navaya Ladoga (87,15),  and Sviritsa (90,12). Look at rule 20.4.1.2. Even if you have to take him hex by hex he will fall. The fighting will be heavy, as Aces8 said, Good luck!

I will do my best to take L once the mud clears, isolating it from supply.
