Countering the Russian Fall Back Line

  • So if you’ve played Axis and Allies Global 1940 edition more than 2 times than you’ve probably been exposed to this strategy at some point in time of playing whether as the Axis powers or the Allies. For those who don’t know this strategy, it calls to where the Soviet Union (assuming Germany doesn’t attack on G1) create a fall back line from the territories Novgorod (Leningrad) all the way down to Ukraine, with Western Ukraine and Belorussia in between and strategically screen the German Divisions with their own counter-attacking force in response to which the Germans inevitably do Barbarossa, invading the empty territories of Baltic states, East Poland and Bessarabia.

    Frankly as for myself, and after my friend having done this strategy from seeing General Hand Grenade’s video I was pretty stumped on how to stop this. Let alone the thought of it being combined with a Middle Earth strategy as well as the Floating Bridge technique done by the United States, I didn’t really know what I would do as Germany, since the whole Afrikakorps thing worked out in my favor, only Barbarossa often didn’t.

    Until it came to me that the solution never really required anything major and/or intense on the Germans part only to do what they did in real life. Use the art of “Blitzkrieg.”

    To summarize the war tactic, Blitzkrieg is the German-designed war strategy to which it requires of the general to concentrate a large majority of his/her forces in a designated area.

    For example, the German commander Erwin Rommel utilized his Blitzkrieg strategy against the French Republic in 1940 by concentrating over 50 Wehrmacht divisions through a given undefended area known as the “Ardennes” which the French had thought to be naturally impassible due to nature… or something I don’t know the French were kind of stupid during the war back in the 40’s.

    Getting back on track though, the only 2 solutions most people saw into countering the Russian Fall Back line was to either 1) Move only your infantry in to distempt the Soviets from attacking a large blob of infantry whilst keeping your artillery and tanks at a safe distance or 2) Move EVERYTHING onto the 3 Soviet Territories mentioned above and hope you hold it all after the Soviets do their counter attack. Neither of these really felt like viable options to me, hense why the strategy was so fond upon as being an effective strategy against the German player.

    Until having done some test runs and coincidentally used the Blitzkrieg tactic against them. See, part of a common trend I found with A&A YouTube strategies for Global 40 is that they tend to concentrate their Soviet Units on their industrial hubs of Novgorod and Ukraine, and frankly I don’t blame them since these 2 areas are the last things you’ll wanna lose (aside from Moscow of course) in the war effort against Germany.

    Having seen this common trend that most players did, it did not seem any simpler than to move the majority, if not all of your units, into East Poland.

    Having done this, the majority of the Soviet Infantry and artillery will be stacked in Novgorod and Ukraine, with only a fleshy buffer force of a handful of units on the territories of Belorussia and Western Ukraine, to which it wont be nearly enough to destroy the largely massed German force.

    As for what I did, I moved the majority of my forces, 75% give or take into East Poland and about 25% into Bessarabia as a bait to draw out the Soviet units from Ukraine to attack.

    Now depending on what the Soviets do in this scenario, they are pretty much left with multiple different options that may or may not lead them to their inevitable downfall, but more often than not what will happen is they will break their formation, move units accordingly to potentially Baltic States, they may also attack Bessarabia if units are put there, or maybe try for an encircling movement of your largely concentrated units.

    To which all you really have left to do is complete the final step in blitzkrieg and divide your forces evenly to overwhelm the Soviet Forces that are spread out and divided, completely unable to do much against a united and concentrated force.

    DISCLAIMER: Assuming anybody who reads this knows this, DO NOT KEEP A BIG BLOB OF GERMAN UNITS TOGETHER. The idea is to move and divide your units accordingly to outnumber the Soviet Massed Units not to keep a giant blob of German units marching all the way to Moscow only for them to have dwindled down.

    That pretty much summarizes this strategy, if anybody knows a better way to counter it or perhaps to add on to it feel free to share it with me, I’d be more than happy to read what you have to say.

  • I agree with the meat of this strategy and can say with 100% confidence if the the Soviets have split their forces attempting to defend both Lenningrad AND Ukraine they will lose Moscow. You can just blow right past a lot of useful units. Germany has enough to starting ground forces alone to force the Soviets of either one of their choosing. Any units left behind in either Lenningrad or Ukraine are just easily picked off and a near free gain for the Germans come time to battle for Moscow.

    However, the counter to the massing German forces on Eastern Poland is a massing of Soviet forces in Bryansk. What you will likely experience is a stalemate where each side is offensively weaker than the other is defensively strong. Neither side can confidently overtake the other’s massed forces in a decisive engagement and yes, time is on the Allies’ side.

    This can be ok. You have choices at this point. Do you pull in your planes and crush the soviets at the expense of opening up Eastern Europe? Or do you hold the line and gobble remaining territory surrounding Moscow.

  • @pinch1

    Understandable why this speculation would come up, but they won’t converge all their units on Byranks and ill tell you way. For the simple reason that they can’t leave Kiev undefended as well as the fact that they won’t have nearly as many units as you by blobbing together.

    Keeping a blob of units is an incredibly newb thing to do as it doesn’t accomplish the goal of your playable nation. And the Germans won’t be keeping this blob they’ll divide it evenly to overwhelm the Soviet units. And if they blob together i absolutely welcome that because if they do then all those units are dead. The luftwaffe as well as every unit on the Eastern front will move in and destroy the Soviet presence in Bryanks

  • @luftwaffles41 Yes, the Luftwaffe will come in and all but guarantee a Soviet defeat. I don’t question that. What I question is the risk of removing the luftwaffe from the western front vs the other Allies.

    You will crush Russia, yes, but will you be able to obtain that final victory city in Europe? I think unlikely. Therefore, as the allied player I absolutely welcome you to bring the entire luftwaffe to the eastern front to crush the soviets. If the Germans want to obtain Moscow, they can obtain Moscow by moving everything east. This is a no brainer. They have the power of choice. If winning this game was a s simple as obtaining Moscow, nothing would stop the Axis from winning.

    I disagree with the blobbing and I think deep down you do too. You define your blitzkrieg strategy by “concentrating the majority of your forces in a designated area.” This is the same thing. I welcome you to split your forces as either the Soviets or the Germans. If either side does they are doomed because you open half your army to attack from the entire enemy army.

    USSR can’t split defense. If you leave or spend your IPC defending Lenningrad those units are wasted. Germany can turn on a dime with superior mobility and take Novgorod with minimal loses and you won’t have enough to hold out in Moscow. USSR Should fall back with everything. If they survive long enough they may be able to mount a counter offensive. If they Die, they die, but the game is still afoot and the luftwaffe is out of position for 2-3 turns to repel amphibious invasion. That’s the classic tradeoff.

  • @pinch1

    Don’t misunderstand this strategy for what it actually does

    The name of the strategy says it all. “Countering the Russian Fallback line.” This by no means is a full complete guide on how to win the Eastern Front but merely a way to get past the so called “unstoppable wall that is the Redy Army.” Blitzkrieg, or as we know it to be called Flash War or Lightning War. Such a tactic is used in this scenario to take advantage of the Soviet positioning.

    And you’re right, im against blobbing units together. Hence how I said it as a disclaimer at the end of the thread not to just keep a huge blob of units together that just March on Moscow.

    Now that we’re on that. By the time the Germans take Moscow the game may as well be over. With national objective money and the steady campaign in the Middle East the Germans are capable of making over 100 IPCs a turn, and that’s without Sub Saharan Africa (i playtested this and saw it happen). And an player in charge of the Allies that thinks the game isn’t technically over yet after Moscow has fallen needs to smell the pavement because the reality of it all is that Germany has won the war having done this.

    If you truly don’t believe that the enemy won’t send everything they have at you in the weak joint of your line up than thats fine. Charles de Gaulle didn’t believe this either and look how that turned out for France.

  • This strategy for the most part is still a prototype having that I didnt go into exact builds on as to what Germany should do and what they should build to make Blitzkrieg work and I might or might not state the terms of what should be done since ultimatly its up to the player to determine how to go about the Eastern Front. Touching on the topic of the Luftwaffe, if the Germanys luftwaffe is sitting in Western Europe inactive until the Americans make a landing then the Axis ought to find themselves a new player to play Germany
    Like I said before, an effective German player will find use for all of his units, in terms of the size of the German airforce Germany should consistently be building up planes to make up for the loss planes in the event a battle doesn’t go your way and ultimately increasing the size of the airforce all together being able to have a full starting sized German airforce on the Eastern Front with some planes leftover to defend Europe. And last, these are planes for crying out loud. They can move 4 spaces at the least, so idk why you’re saying the Luftwaffe will be out of position

    Just out of curiosity when Moscow falls ain’t the Allies pretty much liberating Paris ?

    So there is no way Russia can take back Moscow ?

    If Russia holds Stalingrad don’t you guys feel like Allies still can or should win ?

  • @gen-manstein

    Exactly. See the thing is for a standard G3 attack, since I dont know a single soul that attacks on G1 let alone G2, would like to be getting at Moscow by around turn 6 at the earliest since a direct path to Moscow would take exactly 4 spaces from the original German-Soviet border.

    As for what the Allies are doing, that really depends. The Allies or atleast the Soviets would hope that the Allies would be liberating Paris or at the very least close to liberating Paris, and if they aren’t then it’s game over.

    As for Stalingrad, it’s one of the other priorities I feel Germany should inevitably have in the event the conflict is drawn out further than usual. It’s hard to explain how to exactly go about doing the Eastern Front since many people have many different ways of going about doing it. As for myself, I see less importance in Leningrad and more in Kiev and the southern portion of the Soviet Union since that’s where all the money is. As well as the fact that having taking Stalingrad and the Caucasus will qutie literally give you a bonus 10 IPC’s for the national objective of each these territories allowing the Germans to be able to pump out 70+ IPC’s a turn since they should be making roughly 50 if they’ve done their turn properly.

    All it really comes down to is if the Soviets are willing to defend Stalingrad and if the Germans are willing to devote forces to take Stalingrad since unless you’re sending a secondary party off to go take Stalingrad, it’ll take you to G7 or G8 to taking Moscow which isn’t exactly ideal. Like I said though, for the most part I can guarantee a successful opening into a Barbarossa but unfortunately not a proper way of going about doing it since there are so many different options the German player can do and so many different outcomes.

  • 2022 2021 '20 '19 '18 '17 '16 '15 '14 '13 Customizer

    But the Soviets should be building even after Moscow falls in the urals.

    If Germany goes all out for Moscow then Paris should always get liberated. Unless allies play wrong.
    Other option is if they just go after Stalingrad and oil fields then Germany of course gets money but should get some kind of victory point for each. Point for Stalingrad and a point for the oil in some way. Then u would have a clash there.

    But don’t know if you have that in game.

    I had a game not 36 39 and Germany took Moscow , lost Paris and west Germany and still barely pulled out a win based on Japan had to win the game then for a few more points. That was awesome.

    Another game Moscow fell and Paris was liberated and Russia was able to hold Stalingrad based on correct IC moves, tankograd and Russian planes retreating after a certain amount of turn battles for Moscow.

    Ok. Well good luck

  • @gen-manstein

    You shouldn’t be losing Paris as Germany.

    I assume the Americans are the ones responsible for the liberation of Paris which means 1 of 2 things.

    1. Youre moving too slow on the Eastern Front and not taking Moscow in time or

    2. Youre not doing anything to stop the Americans from landing.

    In another thread a made i talked about how to counter the floating bridge to which the Americans are capable of shucking 8 troops at a time into Europe being they properly set it up.

    The way to counter this is by doing Afrika Korps. Afrika Korps allows the German Player to build a formidable navy and send a decent amount of units down to Africa to stop the American Operation Flashlight

    Depends on what you are looking for in the game. Why should Germany never lose Paris then ? Is game setup for Paris to fall in 44!and like on turn 10 or something ?

  • @gen-manstein

    Well assuming you’re playing with natural OOB victory conditions, if Paris is being liberated by turn 10 then that’s way too late for the Allies. 4 turns late to be exact. It takes America roughly to turn 6 to get a complete floating bridge up and running and Germany only to turn 3 to officially get a navy and formidable sized army down to Africa to assist Italy as well as it’ll take the Germans to G6 to reach Moscow which is right around the time the Soviets are wanting reinforcements from Siberia and planes from UK middle east.

    All in all, the Axis have the absolute advantage to win the game swiftly and soundly its up to them to enact that properly.

    Ok. Not a fan of allies stuff able to go to Russia. Should only be from lend lease.
    Ok. Nice talkin.

  • @gen-manstein

    Yeh, I really don’t like it either. More often than not the UK will put a complex on Persia then slowly build up fighters and when Germany arrives they just stack all their fighters on Moscow I ain’t a fan either.

    Glad I could answer your questions man! Obviously this strategy still needs some work but I just got done running a track race so I need some rest before I do that.

    If you have any other questions about Germany id be more than happy to answer them with the best of my knowledge

    Well I don’t play this game but was just getting up some chat about different stuff about what Russia has and don’t. Since ain’t much going on else ware.

  • @gen-manstein

    Do you play A&A Anniversary? Thats another favorite Axis and Allies game of mine

  • 2022 2021 '20 '19 '18 '17 '16 '15 '14 '13 Customizer

    No. Good game though. I’ve been playing 39 games since 2009.
    Now I play my 41 game with group.

  • @gen-manstein

    Ahhh okay I see. By 39 do you mean Global War 1939?

  • 2022 2021 '20 '19 '18 '17 '16 '15 '14 '13 Customizer

    Ya. 2 buds have 39 games. Then group started playing tigermans 39 game from HBG like version 6.0. We played that. Gar was involved too. Discussed stuff with tigerman and changes were made and then HBG came out with version 1 39 game.
    Then we played and discussed stuff and rules where adjusted up till version 7.2 rules.
    Then HBG came out with I believe version 2 36/39 and nice map but then my group and a few other groups wouldn’t play it based on to many rules and then version 3 came out which you guys are playing now.
    So after playing version 1 39 US would get to war to late in game and Russia had issues. I had like 8 house rule changes but pretty much group was done with game. So I never got a chance to test.
    So in mean time I came up with my 41 game so everybody is at war and axis at peak strength.
    Most guys love when US is at war at start of game.
    And now we got about 50 games in on that.
    Setup of my game. Plus map I made. Almost done with another version of map. 8FFD46A4-052F-41F2-B828-3CF241DC8301.jpeg EBCDBCF3-F77F-4CCB-B11F-782C2FE85B06.jpeg

    He’s suppose to be post rules pretty quick. Has been posting individual rules here and there.

  • @thedesertfox Except Germany hasn’t won the war. You still need Egypt or London. Accompanying a middle Earth strategy do you expect to claim egypt after:

    a: Losing a huge chunk of your forces in the battle for Moscow
    b: Fending off American Beachhead.

    Floating bridge finished or not. If the USA player sees planes leave striking distance of the shores of Western Europe they will be staging as close as possible, dumping troops in North Africa, setting up to take Rome, etc. You don’t need much to cover transports if the luftwaffe is in Ukraine. Unless the Luffwaffe is at least in Western Germany you can’t retaliate against a landing.

    Assuming Moscow falls turn 6 AND your planes were on Bryansk to start they will be at best Eastern Poland at the end of the turn. To reach Bryansk they would have needed to be on Western Germany end of Turn 4. USA would see this and probably stage in Gibralter SZ 91 with minimal coverage, maybe 3 transports, a couple carriers, Battleship, cruiser and destroyer.

    This means turn 5 when the luftwaffe heads over to Bryansk, America is free to beachhead in France. Turn 6, Moscow falls, wave 2 arrives in France. Turn 7 potentially a 3rd arrives probably with 4 transports or more and your planes still cannot touch American navy. So yes, your planes are out of position turn 4, 5, 6, AND 7 to do anything against the incoming invasion if you plan on sending them over to crush Moscow. I was being generous buy suggesting 2-3 turns.

    Add to all this, the sheer ability to harass that America has from SZ91 alone. Listing possible targets that Germany can’t cover all at once: Normandy, Southern France, Holland, Norway, Denmark, Western Germany, Northern Italy, Rome. If the German player takes planes to Moscow for the early capital grab America can establish a beachhead or land troops wherever it pleases to cause the most damage to your game. Letting USA establish a foothold is really bad.

    I am sorry, I do not see how this is a new strategy. People have known that you could claim Moscow hands down as Germany if you brought everything to the table from the get go. This is nothing new. The challenge still remains, can you hold onto everything in Europe AND capture Egypt before the end. USA is not just going to sit around and wait. They will mobilize turn 4 and at the very least make sure you hold back your planes. They will at the very least establish a strong enough presence in N.Aftrica with tanks and Mechs to make sure Axis never claims Cairo. With Moscow falling on 6 and a luftwaffe unable to touch the American transports until 8, the floating bridge is established anyways if they only needed 5 turns of building to begin with any planes required to defend transports can be built on 5 or six and land on carriers before Germany can remove them. Its a tough prospect. Especially on the Europe board alone where there’s no Japan to pressure the States.

  • @pinch1

    First, I need to apologize since I don’t think I addressed that this is a combined-joint strategy with Afrika Korps and the Blitzkrieg war tactic against Russia.

    Now, if we’re talking the terms of victory with the OOB rules…

    Instead of me saying “Germany has won the war” I should’ve said “Germany has effectively beaten the Allies to the point to which they can no longer effectively do anything to the Axis powers as a whole.”

    Germany begins with 30 IPC’s. The taking of all 3 provinces of France brings the number up to 39 IPC’s. Having also taken Bulgaria, Finland, and Morocco and/or Algeria brings the number up to 44 IPC’s a turn. Assuming we’re talking the Germans having reached and captured Moscow by then, the Germans should have gotten all the former Soviet Territory from East Poland to Smolensk and Bryansk, adding a whopping 11 more IPC’s to the count, making 55 IPC’s a turn, and thats WITHOUT having taken Leningrad, Stalingrad, or Moscow. Now, assuming the Germans suceed in taking Moscow that’s 3 more IPC’s for the territory to include 2 more 1 for each territory north and south being able to blitz into Moscow adding a total of 5 more IPC’s to the count making 60 IPC’s a turn, adding on the bonus money the Soviet Union had before losing their capital, but for the purposes of consistency I will ignore this number. We’re not done yet. Assuming the Germans will have secured the Northern and Southern Industrial hubs of the Soviet Union whilst on their way to Moscow or clean it up after taking it, we have Leningrad and Karelia with a total of 3 IPC’s, Stalingrad and the Caucasus being 4 IPC’s and blitz through Archangel for the hell of it making 8 more IPC’s to the count, bringing the number to 68 IPC’s. Now, assuming the Germans have control of this having properly reached Moscow, gives them National Objective money of a whopping 20 IPC’s, 1 for each Soviet City and 1 for taking the Caucasus, bringing the number to 88 IPC’s a turn.

    This is how much the Germans can pack by G6-G8. With the American floating bridge made a possibility for landing in France, do I even need to explain the unit builds to counter a meager 8 units at a time being sent over to Southern France?

    Now that we’ve counted all the POTENTIAL money Germany can be making, let’s count Italy.

    Italy possess a meager 10 IPC’s to start. assuming Germany and Italy did the 3 plane scramble should eliminate any and all ships that went into the Taranto Raid, leaving them to take out the French ships bordering Southern France. Having taken Greece for 2 IPC’s. Tunisia for 1, Egypt/Sudan for 1, and Kenya for 1, makes 5 IPC’s along with the Italian national objective of no boats in the med giving them 20 IPC’s on their first turn. On turn 2, the Germans will be moving down to secure Gibraltar, as well as taking out Southern France giving Italy another National Objective of 5 IPC’s, as well as having taken Alexandria on turn 1 and finishing off with taking Algeria on turn 2 making for another national objective of 5 IPC’s, leaving Italy with 30 IPC’s to spend on the 2nd turn on ships needs to build up a navy. Keep in mind, by now the entirety of the British airforce should be either destroyed or fulled away from the Med to deal with Japan. Allowing the Italians to freely and safely rebuild their destroyed navy assuming the British made a successful Taranto Raid, combined with the slowly growing German Navy in the Med to protect the Italian navy.

    With all this in mind, the Germans and Italians will be making automatic headway immediately towards Cairo to take it by turn 4 or turn 5, which is right when the Americans are SET to start the floating bridge.

    Now setting the Luftwaffe aside, with the Germans and Italians having properly built up a navy and ready for action, setup inside Seazone 92, and you’ve stopped the floating bridge just like that. The Americans cannot and will not attack this navy, because they have no interest risking over 12 transports worth of IPCs to end up in the water, so the presence of the Luftwaffe is out of the question and can be prioritized on taking Moscow.

    Consider the fact that you said floating bridge or not tells me that I dont think you fully understand the merits at which the Americans are capable of doing their floating bridge. Because inevitably they’ll spend more on the Europe side than the Eastern side. And in my thread that I made on how to counter the Floating bridge, Japan plays a SIGNIFICANT role in this.

    General Hand Grenade may have told you that “As long as you keep Honolulu and Sydney the Japanese can’t win the game for the Axis.” And frankly, if he and everybody else thinks that all it takes is to just ‘watch over those 2 territories and the Japanese never win’ than they might need to reevaluate themselves. Because the moment I’m finished up with Calcutta and are collecting 50+ IPC’s then this is going to happen: 10 transports, 20 guys, my entire navy, my entire airforce, take midway, attack Hawaii and win the game. The Japanese dont have to even break a sweat to do this, and the fact that my American enemy is so willing to leave the Pacific theater alone is absolutely splendid for me as Japan.

    Like I said, a proper German player doesn’t need to cover Norway, Denmark, Western Germany, Northern Italy, Rome or Normandy simply if they understand how the Floating Bridge works. The floating bridge works in such a way that 2 sets of 8 transports shuck troops back and forth into Africa from N. America. Then, the way the utilize Southern France is with the very fact that with 1 single group of transports, they can move back and forward taking guys into France only need 12 transports in total to take guys form North America to Morocco and then into Southern France. If the Americans wanted to make a floating Bridge that linked into Normandy or Denmark than that would require an entire extra link of 4 transports to get troops in there. This is why America prioritizes landing in Southern France.

    As for the last paragraph you posted, what are you sorry for?

    If you’re sorry for the idea that this isn’t a ‘new strategy’ than, with all do respect, I suggest you look back at my original post of what this strategy was all about.

    I think its obvious that if we send everything we have into Russia that we’ll find some success in taking them out. Until a certain General hand Grenade came along and said he developed a strategy for the Soviet Union involving counter attacking that was ‘impossible’ to defeat. And taking it upon myself, I found a way to counter the so said ‘unbeatable’ strategy. Like I said before, this Blitzkrieg opening is in no way supposed to thoroughly go through every single move of Barbarossa. Because after you’ve broken the Soviet Maginot Line 2.0 than the game runs like clock work of taking more Soviet territory by the second.

    As for winning the game, the Axis do what the Axis do best, and win the game quickly. By G6 when the Germans are on the doorstep of Moscow, they’ve taken Stalingrad and Leningrad, and likely Cairo, and all of a sudden the very means at which the USA is finally prepared to make landings in London, it’s already too late. All 8 victory cities have been won for the Axis on the Europe side of the board.

    The Allies’ only hope at winning is to draw out the game, make it long. There’s no magic bullet the US can use to make a quick landing in Berlin and end the whole war. The game needs to be drawn out and weighted to which the Allies arrive to save the Soviet Union. These are 2 different playable aspects that collide with eachother to win it all.

    When this game made it’s debut, everybody did Barbarossa. They did it, had success and said “I’m bored, I need to find a new method of winning.” Because at the end of the day this game goes so much more in depth than just doing a Barbarossa attack. I’ve had the privilege of being able to see this concept multiple times starting from Axis and Allies 1941 edition to A&A Anniversary, A&A 1942 edition, all the way to Global 1940. I can say from experience of many previous games that this strategy goes more in depth than just the Barbarossa attack.

    I hope this clears the air of confusion and misconception.
