Weather 4
Axis win initiative:

Japan reinforces Adelaide and restore the convoy lines which had been shattered last turn. Italy also sails her fleet but fails. Germany ground strikes OS Russians but fail, this could have been a great victory if the strikes succeeded. We do hit a cav corps in the Caucasus mountains. The SS armor moves towards Mosul, regaining this city is the top priority at the moment, to be honest this is also the only theater where Germany has superiority over the Allies in both air and land units.

Naval action for both the CW and US. This results in the loss of two Turksih ships while most other searches fail. They also flip two Italians in Rome. USSR moves some units.

Weather 6:
More failed ground strikes for Germany, so much effort for so hardly any gains. Japan pours even more reinforces into Adelaide and also eliminate the last Americans on the Philippines.

Now the USSR, CW and USA all put pressure on the Germans. On the oil fields in the Caucasus the blitz against mechanized Germans results in the loss of a Russian division, without any gains. The attack against Rome results in a 1/2 a heavy price but the Italians hold on to their capital. CW forces attack Rotterdam in the snow but only achieve a 2/1 which is only a slight setback. If the Allies are already capable of putting so much pressure on the Axis in the west during snow impulses then what will spring bring? Above the Ruhr both sides lose a fighter and the Germans lose 1 bp. Anti air drives another bomber away with a 9 out of 1/3.

Relieved that the Allied offensive failed on all fronts we start our own. SS armor reclaims Mosul and more important the oil which was cut off. Italy brings reinforcements to Rome while losing half of her remaining navy, the end is near.

With most land and naval forces used a massive bomber wave gathers above Aken. The Luchtwaffe fights hard, killing 3 bombers while only losing 1 fighter. Despite this the Allies still destroy 1 factory.
