Overview:
German tactics failed inside the confines of Stalingrad as the Russians were able to dig in and fight from every building. The confines of the city stifled manoeuvre, and German superiority in artillery, air power, and armor were rendered ineffective as the infantry of both sides intermingled while fighting for each block of the city. This was Rattenkrieg – the war of the rats.

Last Played:
2017-05-12(D) Seumas Hoskins vs Dean Russian winRussians focused defenses mostly on eastern side while Germans attempted a blended approach. Fierce fighting in the north led to a crippled German killstack while conscript skulking in the far southwest kept the flamethrower from reaching the objective buildings.
2017-04-23(D) Louis Langdeau vs Andrew S German winA combination of overly aggressive usage of FPF with my conscripts, and some truly horrific rolls, left me with 4 GO squads on the back half of turn two. We called it after I lost another two squads in CC.
2017-03-12(A) Jim Rupp vs James L. Russian winTried to do a quick turn on this scenario, but ended up calling it after two hours. The German's dice just didn't want to roll good. Lots of breaks and no MCs/Ks when firing.
2017-02-26(D) Tom Abromaitis vs German win
2017-02-22(A) Bob Davis vs David D German winI played very aggressively. Got lucky with dice rolls on turn 1 and that set the whole tone of the game. David gave up during my phase of turn 4 as I was about to take the third building. MY FIRST ASL WIN!
2017-02-21(A) Scott Fischbein vs Michael Holy In progressUnfinished game - had to call it on turn 4 for lack of time.
2017-02-18(A) Bob Davis vs Steve M In progressI played as the Russians. Should have been more aggressive. Should have used smoke more. Didn't finish
2017-01-29(A) Carlos Roig vs Russia German winWe had to leave the game in the russia 5th turn with some advantage for the germans. In the turn and a half left the germans had everything almost done to finish winning
2017-01-29(A) J M vs German win
2017-01-26(D) Tom Abromaitis vs Matt Russman Russian win
2016-12-20(A) davide galloni vs luca German win
2016-11-12(D) Jeff B vs Bronson Barnhart Russian winGermans were very tentative in crossing the street, opting to shoot more often than scoot. Not sure that I blame them though as the Russians had two monster kill stacks holding down the flanks.
2016-10-12(A) Tom Abromaitis vs Austin Brace Russian winSnakes on a crucial CC really ended the day for the Germans...
2016-08-04(D) Ed Brogden vs Slot German winThis was a reintroduction to ASL for me. It was a fun fast scenario. And it turned out my poor initial placement did not matter, as I rolled 12 after 12 after 12, defying the laws of statistical probability.
2016-07-24(A) Tom Abromaitis vs Russian winA brutal Russian counterattack sealed this one.
2016-06-22(D) Michael Focht vs Dave Dentel Russian win
2016-05-01(A) David Garvin vs Patrick Ireland German win
2016-01-15(A) David Garvin vs Craig Stark German win
2015-11-02(A) Alberto Griffa vs Mario Aceto Russian win
2015-10-12(A) Alberto Griffa vs Jack Dempsey Russian win
2015-09-27(A) Dmitry Klyuykov vs Anna Russian winSoviet Reinforcements on Turn one is a disaster.
2015-08-28(A) Ken Monson vs Joe Gauthier German winFairly easy romp against the Russian defenders, although I was rolling extremely well and my opponent very badly.
2015-08-26(D) Michael Focht vs Darren Jones Russian win
2015-08-04(A) David Garvin vs German win
2015-07-21(A) Thierry Mathy vs Thomas German win

2015-06-01(D) Andy Waller vs Santiago Jimenez Russian winEffective use of smoke is essential in this fun scenario.
2015-05-29(D) santiago jimenez vs Stephen Tam German win
2015-01-17(D) Michael Focht vs Gordon Stewart Russian win
2014-10-26(A) Dmitry Klyuykov vs Grugnir German win
2014-07-23(A) santiago jimenez vs Jorge Suarez Russian win
2014-04-01(D) Russell Dewhurst vs Chris Martineau Russian win
2014-03-30(A) J M vs Russian win
2014-03-15(A) leo zhu vs AraKalLek German win玩到第2回合德军行动完后,苏军死伤过半,AraKalLek掀桌了
2014-03-09(D) Aaron Sibley vs Rosta Russian winGave the balance as he his still learning.
2014-01-31(D) Merric Blackman vs Kalum German win
2014-01-11(A) Merric Blackman vs Michael Elshaug Russian win
2014-01-11(A) Jeff T vs Gabriel German winGabe and I decided to try the 2nd ASLSK scenario. For some reason he wanted to play the Russians, so I let him setup. He did a pretty good job (only his 2nd game) keeping his forces back to avoid the 9-2 German death star, but he left a few of the approach hexes undefended and allowed my Germans to get up close and personal. I whittled him down, breaking squads and pushing him back. He could have used his reinforcements a turn earlier, they came in on Russian 3. By then, my Germans had the advantage and he had to counterattack. The flamethrower broke the 9-2 stack in the woods and his 5-2-7 squads kept pinning and he conceded after Turn 4 when I broke his final 5-2-7. He lost 2 leaders to wounds and the 9-1 to close combat. German victory.
2013-05-29(D) Don Lazov vs OttoBomb Russian winPzPenguin Battle # 004
2013-03-02(A) Jonathan Davis vs Scott Eichelberger German winGermans successfully used all SW and smoke to full advantage, going up the middle to divide and conquer.
2012-12-29(A) Steffen Knippel vs Shane McKenzie German win
2012-06-10(A) O Ramaille vs Russian winThe german strategy was to first focus their attack on the 2 most weakly defended buildings. However, it was not as quick as expected and the russian were successful in defending the last building. Remaining forces : - Russian : 4 unbroken squads + 1 leader - German : 3 unbroken squads + 2 leaders
2012-02-16(D) Thierry Mathy vs Simo477 Russian win
2011-12-31(D) Paul Jones vs Matt Osterhaus Russian winGermans decimated as they crossed the street

2011-11-10(A) Michal Kostan vs [solo] Russian win
2011-08-29(D) Stefan C vs Matt O Russian winRussian reinforcements arrive turn 2, Germans suffered early casualties and flame thrower loss, could never push further.
2011-08-27(A) Stefan C vs Matt O German winGermans overpowered Russians (placed units too close to German start), Russians gave up turn 2

2010-12-09(D) Damon Baume vs Richard Salisbury Russian win
2010-11-24(A) Martí Cabré vs Albert Alegre German winEasy VASSAL win against Padawan. Defenses were too exposed and I just blasted them and then quickly take the buildings.
2010-09-04(A) Don Lazov vs Morgan McDermott German win
2010-06-09(A) Kermit Mullins vs Scott Waites German winFor once a plan of attack actually worked...Dice helped
2010-05-23(D) Paul Jaschke vs Dave German winInteresting scenario. Took a severe beating from flamethrower. Demo charges never really played a big part. Got my reinforcements on the last turn but he was too well setup in the buildings by then. Russian really needs to have a good fallback plan before setup.
2009-12-14(A) Thierry Mathy vs Norman Jacobs Russian win
2009-11-24(D) John Shingara vs Cliff Smith German winBrutal beating. Held out 'til last turn, but was utterly destroyed.

2008-12-18(A) The Scrub vs Prawn German winRematch of an earlier playing. The Russians defended a lot better but again broke and ran at inopportune times. The reinforcements showed up and were mauled.
2008-11-30(D) mark watson vs Christopher Bennell German win
2008-10-25(D) Steven Pow Jr vs Chris Brown German winWent until the last turn, when my close combat rush couldn't succeed in knocking him out of a building.
2008-10-01(A) LE BILLAN Laurent vs Lorenzo German winTerrible First fire from the German in 1rst turn let no chance to the Russian. Russian reinforcement sleep till turn 4, too late to change the end.
2008-09-23(A) Allen Evenson vs Jerry DeMoss German winLopsided German win But Amis still had a chance going into final turn. Didn't receive reinforcement until turn 5!!
