As the guns fall silent, albeit for just a while, here is a summary of the current situation.
NATO forces are approaching the German border east of Amsterdam, having conducted a brilliant counterattack against the Warsaw Pact spearhead. The Netherlands are confidently expected to be completely under NATO control within hours.
The Battle for the Ruhr has been the scene of the heaviest fighting. The Warsaw Pact spearheads coming south from Bremen and west from the Fulda Gap to close the Hanover Pocket and trap much of the British Army are still being held apart near Kassel. Strong counterattacks by the British to the north and the US to the east of the Kassel Corridor have kept this vital artery open.
The US counterattack towards Leipzig aiming to link up with the Hanover Pocket and cut off the Warsaw Pact forces around the Fulda Gap is failing with reports of Warsaw Pacts forces recapturing towns taken in the early days of the advance.
West German forces are approaching the Czech border in the south of Germany, where their counteroffensive has regained much of the ground lost in the early days of the campaign.
