My objectives was to as far as possible in the south and take Leningrad. The offensive in the south because the open ground facilitates manoeuvring and destroying Russian troops. Leningrad was also an objective because at the begining, while Russians are not well organised, it is worth to take all this ground designed for defense, later it will be harder to grab it. Until October all was going ok and all objectives were reached. So I started to make a pause to prepare for winter. Unfortunatly Russian didn't allowed me resting because they started to get stronger. Then the winter came ... and that was a desaster. I had enough strengh to hold russian but I forgot that rivers can freeze !!! Big fatal mistake !!! My troops were not disposed for that. Even if in the south I could withdraw behing the Dniepr and could easily hold the line, in the center the front was becoming to large and strated to colapse without hope to fix it. So I must surrender. Bad experience for my first "big" scenario but worth of experience. Congartulation to Zazar for his victory.

Nrml pushed his initial attack too hard and when the winter shock came Van Manstein was ready and waiting and took full advantage to surround and destroy significant wehrmacht forces. The wehrmacht never recovered and the red army became stronger and nothing could stop it.
