Great scenario. Even with losing a Panzer Division early it was still a struggle to get take all the VP hexes

This scenario requires skill to win but it can be won by either side.
The Allied player must capture most Axis held objectives.
The Axis player must stay supplied and avoid loosing units, while keeping the Allies from capturing most of the Axis held objectives before the scenario ends.
Good PBEM scenario.

This scenario is fairly balanced as neither side seemed like it could break through the others lines. We quickly dug in and basically had small counter attacks here and there but neither side could achieve a break through. Allies have tons of air assets but they were pretty useless.

The secret code to break the axis must be air war bombing supply lines harbor depot, as allies you don’t have any reserve for a breakthrough
