Jason and I finished up Ponyri today. This was (I think), the first Russian campaign I played where the Russian command rules were not in effect. It didn't help. Jason's tank blitz was in full effect and he managed to move his right flank of tanks fully at least twice. Though he started the scenario with a 2 point deficit, there was no way I could withstand an assault like that. He won 7-5, moving the balance for the war 204-191 for the campaign.
