You know...if you sit back, the Axis stretch your line and find a break.
If you attack you are brittle. You can lose units that are IRREPLACEABLE...OUCH.
Mixing it up is fine, but you must have enough CF's to overcome the inevitable 2 on the surprise roll. ..or the failed Reaction roll counter attack. Meanwhile you develop a defense or an offensive plan and pow.... 2 brigades depart....WTF.
This is classic unpredictable warfare at its best/worst.
Perhaps the Allies need to sit back until late '41.??? Then launch with a full complement of forces....hmm. Kind of lame, but you could simulcast from Dec '40 thru August '41....lol.??...hmmm....
....I have no idea what will happen next. 2/3s of the Greek force is permanently out or needs rebuilding. PAX/EQ are a long way off. I do have 3 Brigades in Sidi birrani, that could be used to build a defence more easterly.
