In late September, time finally runs out of the isolated Russian fleet in Norway.  Despite an heroic attempt to break out into the North Sea, the fleet is finally surrounded and destroyed by an allied force four times its size at Oslo.  Britain once again holds an unadulterated battle line in the north.

Annihilation

The Russian fleet in Norway is surrounded and destroyed.

To the east, the rest of the Soviet military takes advantage of the allied focus on Norway to reshuffle it’s troops.  Reinforcement armies rail into Moscow, Sevastopol and Warsaw, while two more forces stand each other off in a conservative defense of St. Petersburg, that leaves the province unoccupied.

Outside of Scandinavia, there is little action along the entire length of the European front, as most units choose to hold in place before the winter.  The isolated move comes from Italy, who move a fleet north along the coast to Tuscany.
