Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
GermanRussian / Partisan
By nightfall of June 22nd, the German V Infantry Corps had broken through the Soviet border defenses and established a bridgehead across the Nieman River some 40 miles away. Later that night a bridging column of the 5th Infantry Division was ambushed while passing a forest near Seirijai – and soon afterward it was reported that intermittent fighting against armed civilians, both near the forest and in the town, was blocking the main road to the bridgehead. Thinking the resistance could comprise no more than a few lightly armed civilians and Red Army stragglers, an infantry company attempted to clear the woods at dawn the next day but was solidly rebuffed, as were a second and later a third company thrown in to reinforce it. So on the next morning, following a bombardment by an entire artillery battalion, two infantry battalions attempted to flush out the enemy while elements of a third sealed off the forest edges to prevent any escape.

2019-10-05(A) Michael Rodgers vs Ben Lootens German winRussian player was still learning ASL. Germans reached the 25 VP after four turns.
2019-03-06(A) Shane Pask vs German winInitial bombardment rubbled 3 houses - 2 with partisans and leaders in = instant 10VP. The Russians still held off until the last German turn thanks to a commissar armed with an ATR and the 9-2 with a .50cal. I finally captured 7 of the 10 foxholes. My sniper kept harassing a broken squad (when he bothered to do anything), while the Russian sniper immobilised two cars, killed one AT crew (broke twice) and broke another crew once.
2019-01-31(D) patrick palma vs Jack Boyle Russian / Partisan win
2018-04-17(A) David Garvin vs Jeff Buser Russian / Partisan winFire. So much fire!
2018-01-30(D) Andy Beaton vs Martí Cabré German winPartisan plan to slowly withdraw to the centre was scuppered by a giant forest fire in the middle of my defence. Germans easily mopped up the partisans.
2017-04-21(A) Martí Cabré vs Andy Beaton German winPartisan conceded... before starting the game. The pre-start bombardment broke havoc and it was better to start anew with a different setup.
