In a nutshell this scenario is just a race down the coast to Baku. Almost completely ignoring the western part of the battlefield and redirecting units to help out on the coast makes this scenario much easier. Your goal should be to try and have a foothold on the outskirts of Baku by the end of the Axis turn 8, as the enemy is reinforced at the beginning of it's turn.
*One of the most important aspects of this scenario is that the forces along the enemy coast are resupplied by the supply line running south along the Kura River. There is a supply point in Baku but it is not connected to a supply line, so the enemy has to be within 8 hexes of Baku to be resupplied. Utilizing a unit in your western force to cross the river and block the enemy's southern supply line will greatly help your advance along the coast.
-I began by destroying some of the units along the coast road using my armor and infantry.
-Clearing the enemy's zone of control with my motorized infantry in the west I was able to advance an infantry unit to the southwestern bend along the Kura river, ready to cross it on my next turn.
-I also moved the single armored unit in the west near some favorable terrain in the mountains where he would be able to slowly cross over to join my forces along the coast.
-I had all of my other forces in the northwest mountains dig in.
End of turn 1:
-During turns 2-5 I continued my advance along the coast rolling over the unsupplied enemy units.
-The enemy grew tired of the harrassment of his southern supply line and finally attacked my infantry unit on turn 5, and destroyed him on turn 7.
-I repositioned my forces in the northwest, digging in on mountains and hilltops to prevent a breakthrough in the north.
-I began to move my motorized force across the mountains, however it never was able to make it to the battle. Perhaps a few turns earlier may have allowed it to be of more use.
End of turn 5:
-By turn 7 I was adjacent to the western hex of Baku and had the city surrounded by the end of Axis turn 8. This allowed me to beat the bad weather and enemy reinforcements.
-Continuously pounding the city, I was able to capture Baku on turn 10
End of turn 7:
