Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The Sixth Army was being bled white amidst the ruins. The rifle strength of whole companies was often reduced to little more than a squad in an attempt to take a single house. The battle lines were now drawn through the hallways of individual buildings rather than by street or city blocks. The Germans decided to bring in fresh specialized units for the final assault; five battalions of elite pioneers specially trained in street fighting and veterans of the bitter street battles of Voronezh were summoned to take the last stubborn outposts between the machine shops of the Barrikady Gun Factory and the Volga. However, the pioneers of Major Rettenmaier had never seen a battle the equal of that for the “Commissar’s House”.

2018-09-25(D) Scott Sherer vs D. Bruce Weston Russian winCame down to one hold-out hex on the second level of the Commisar's House. The Russians had the stairways effectively blocked on the last turn so the Germans couldn't get into position to break the units in the final hex going through the building, and a desperate German flank attack around the building was broken, thus giving the victory to the Russians.

2018-05-21(D) Louis Langdeau vs Lee M Russian winAnother close run on this scenario. Lee mentioned he's played it a lot, and I can see why. There's a lot of room for different approaches on both the offense and the defense. On this run, I set up with reasonably strong deployments on both my flanks. I also deployed two 447s and a dummy in FF7, Z7, and R7. My intent was to make the Germans deploy slightly backward, push them into the center to rob them of safe rout paths, and buy as much time as possible before Lee got a full surround on Z3. The first turn or two went reasonably well. I broke some units, and my one 628 squad in the chemist's house held out for longer than I thought he would. Around turn 3 though, my left collapsed pretty hard. Troops still managed to fall back in reasonably good order, but Lee snagged a lot of prisoners. Around turn 4, there was another big collapse, this time on my right. Lee maintained his characteristic aggressiveness, and by turn 5 there was a lot of German troops on both sides of the road looking in at the Z3 line of buildings. Unfortunately, over the next two or three turns, Lee's attack stalled out. There were a few clutch rolls on my side that I managed to make, and a few on Lee's that went very badly. It wouldn't have been so crushing, but it was right on the turn before a bunch of sewer troops found their way into Z3, reinforcing what had been a pretty weak ground floor. After a few more turns of assaults, Lee called it.
