We are on turn 37 and I have prevented the Finns from breaking through my lines but I am dangerously thin in places with squads of one or two men holding 50 to 100 meters of the line. I don't think my opponent realizes the extent to which my platoons have been weakened or else he would be pushing through those sectors very aggressively. FOW is my ally.
The initial artillery barrage was quite demoralizing. Three tanks suffered gun damage, the OT-34 was immobilized and many platoons were decimated. Those tree bursts were particularly murderous. I thought the barrage would never end; it was one of worst I have experienced playing CM.
Good thing for the timely arrival of the reserve companies, otherwise the Finns would have cracked my line by now.
So far an interesting and intense battle.
