I will try something similar, but won´t be of any use. I am redeploying units there, but so are they, and it would not surprise me to find more than 40 divs there in a few days. Not much I can do, TBH.Counter attack Landshut with all the surrounding divisions (support attack). You must drive the bolsheviks out of Austria!
Yes, I have to settle with trying to do smaller encirclements like the one I did, but seriously...as you have said, 700 divisions is an insane number, and no matter how well an offensive goes (30 encircled divs is a pretty good number) they willj ust pour more and more divisions. And also I am getting tired and a little frustrated, specially knowing that if I did not focus so much in doing an early sealion perhaps I could have seized initiative and crushed them. If it was a normal non-AAR game, I think I would have already quit. I am in that awful moment every DH player has experienced, when your screen is filled with reports about enemy air raids, the enemy seems to redeploy units by teletransportation...you know what I mean, I´m sure .Damn, 700 divisions!? Completely insase...
Seems like you need a very Führer-esque plan to escape from this, I propose pinning attacks with your forces in Poland and Bavaria against the Reds, while you head to Bratislava after you reinforce your stack in Prague. Seems like you can't ask for a huge pocket or you'd be overwhelmed... But you have to do something!
EDIT: Don't you have any dicisions regarding Vichy France? Since nobody will enter your alliance, that appears to be the only candidate, and any reinforcements help.
And no, I don´t have any decisions about that. Being democratic has stopped lots of decisions and events to trigger (gotta report this to the mod creator), such as the German Diplomatic Offensive after France´s fall, the Atlantic Wall, Hendaya meeting... Believe me I have checked almost any country, and no one will join the Axis.
PS: I just realized that the last pciture shows a nearly destroyed Berlin. I shall look for another one tomorrow.
