Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
In July 1941 Mussolini sent the 62,000-strong CSIR (Italian Expeditionary Corps) to the Eastern Front. Its three divisions and attached troops linked up with the Wehrmacht in Romania, where the corps vehicular transport was pooled in order to completely motorize the 9th “Pasubio” Division. This unit, reinforced with corps artillery and motorcycle troops, was ordered to advance quickly to the Bug River, then turn south to cut off the Red Army crossing points. In one typical small-unit action during this period, elements of the division’s advance guard had to force a crossing of a small river in order to continue their advance.

2018-03-17(D) David Garvin vs James Montgomery Italian win
2017-10-22(A) Jeff B vs John Fedoriw Italian winI've never had any luck at bridge crossings...until now. Italians sent the allowed three squads/SW/Leader across the fords to draw some village garrison attention, set up two kill stacks to bust up the bridge garrison, a detachment of troops to clean up an outlying Russian in the south, and the rest of the men were earmarked to storm the bridge. The lone target west of the river with LOS to the bridge proved to be dummies, freeing the Italian horde for the bridge crossing. Russians surprisingly allowed them to span the length of the bridge without opposition, and by Turn 2 they actually managed to get a couple squads across and into the relative safety of the woods. The village garrison made quickly to shore up the defenses, while the tank moved even more quickly to cover the bridge exit with its scary CMG. The key stroke of luck for the Italians came on Turn 3 when they dropped some smoke at the exit, allowing the troops to pour over relatively safely. The low ELR for both sides made things quite interesting, even making the commissar's job difficult (he would actually prove to be a detriment). The tank was dispatched with during Russian Turn 3 and the Russian troops broke at the drop of a pin. They tried to hold out for another turn, but by this point it was looking quite obvious that without the tank they would just be pushed further and further away from the bridge.
2016-01-18(A) Dave Mareske vs Scott Martin Italian winThe Russians rolled poorly to put any effective fire on the bridge and then one of the Italian ATRs sniped the Russian tank. Went to the end, but was an uphill battle for the Russians at the end.
2015-11-16(D) Dave Mareske vs Dan Best Russian win
2015-08-10(D) Bill Brodie vs Eric Topp Italian winThis was a scenario the swayed back and forward between us. I got the best of it to begin with, making it very hard for the Italians to cross the bridge. Eric managed to cross the fords and put pressure on the flank, which bogged down for both sides. Eventually the Italian firepower began to tell near the bridge, and the brittle ELR of the Russians resulted in a lot of broken conscripts. The time came to throw the tank at the bridge, but after surviving about a dozen shots, it inevitably fell to the Italian ATRs. With that went the chances of the Russians. A great scenario that I would play at any time as either side.
