The second battle in our Crimea Campaign ends with an Axis victory. Thankfully it has been very costly to the Axis and we strongly recommend that they bleed even more freely in the next action. The conclusion of the battle looked like this... Romanians do the work...the Germans just sit back and watch the casualties mount. The cavalry finaly get into the trenchworks but at high cost.
German armour breaks through by sheer weight of numbers.....while the Russians suffer from the Luftwaffe policy of using gravity. Enfilading fire from the antitank guns towed onto the hill by the cavalry wreaks havoc.
Troopers from the cavalry also winkle out trenchline.

Hits aplenty...time to call it a day. Keeping what is left a coherent force for the next show rises in the list of priorities.
Red eye veiw...
Charge to the empty trenchline...thats how it should be.
Birds eye view... The Axis has its hill, town and victory. Three Russian Infantry Battalions, one a/t company, two companies of tanks, one battery 152mm How and a rocket battery make a dent in the enemy....
Actual results next week.
