@blast2222 I’m on an entirely different continent, unfortunately. Hope you find some players!

RE: Question about blitzing for the 1942 2nd edition
@panther That settles the matter. I told my friend when we had our game that he was right all along. Believe it or not, but I’ve lost every game against him. In any case, thank you for your input. All the best!
Question about blitzing for the 1942 2nd edition
I have played like ten games by now with a friend that is rather experienced and good at this game. This question came up during gameplay:
Can you announce you will blitz through an area, provided you win a battle in aforemention area, thus making it clear of enemy units?
Example: As Germany I have 5 infantry and 2 tanks in Eastern Europe. The Soviets have 1 infantry in Ukraine and 1 infantry in Caucasus.
Can I thus announce I’ll attack into Ukraine with my 5 infantry, and provided I win, my 2 tanks will blitz through the now empty land in Ukraine, and attack into Caucasus?
My friend said no to this prospect. But I think yes. It would be within the framework of the rules, and the intended mechanics of blitzing. A breakthrough means you can unleash your tanks. If you lose the first battle, your tanks can’t move that round.
What is your judgement on this matter?
