Snabbaste tyska vinsten hittills?

Nej, några veckor tidigare spelade vi kampanjen och då blev det även tysk seger efter första CG Day 17/10, mina Tyskar orsakade stora förluster och terrängvinster (blev ingen AAR). Nu har vi börjat om igen, jag spelar tysk för tredje gången men nu är det mera av med-/mot-gång.
