Confusion and Bureacracy! At a most crucial time less than half of the German army's generals are available with no clear central authority. The cause being Evilman suffering a massive hangover from his previous binge on the liquor supplies, leaving command to Tomatow while Tomatow took leave as well. With confusion and tension rising within the German army, the Red Army continues its stalwart advance. At Stalingrad, Ahriman manages to commence an encirclement of Evilman's surviving command, cutting off supplies and likely dooming the southern front. Even this does not get Evilman back as he was at that time unconcious mumbling about one-upping Himmler. North of Stalingrad, the situation gets further desperate with Hypsicritea's and Ahriman's forces flanking elements close to Stalingrad and making a breakthrough in the German lines at another point. At the Central Front, Kcat suddenly found out he, Levodicus, and GreatGeneralle were to assume an ad hoc command due to the loss of upper leadership. Kcat asked his enemies politely to be gentle. In response his northmost unit was hit on three fronts by Tankofdoom commanding forces of multiple army groups. Luckily for Kcat, his men seeing an ocean of Red Army soldier gathering decided to fortify their position as much and quickly as humanly possible using everything from the kitchen sink to the occasional livestock in building up barricades. They survived the assault and continue to hold off the the red tide for now. Contrast to Kcat, GreatGeneralle in the north was spoiling for a fight hurling insults at Russian soldiers while dodging bullets and insulting them some more. When Partycommissar responded by reinforcing his lines and waiting, GreatGeneralle became livid calling Partycommissar a coward and cursing Russian soldiers for their lack of balls to face him head on. His soldiers had to hold him back from charging at the Red army alone with a pistol in hand. With yet more reinforcements strengthening the Soviet lines will the German Army survive? Will Great Generalle get the good fight he was looking for? Did Kcat's troops actually try to build a barricade by stacking pigs? Will Evilman wake up from his dream of being the MechaFuhrer?! Find out on the next War in the East Clash of the Centurions!
