Escape At Dawn ETO (id:#56765)
ASL Union of Gamers (ASLUG # 8 ID:ASLUG17)
Designer: Dave Sisler
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The German thrust towards Rostov had encircled the port of Odessa, trapping many Russian units with their backs to the Black Sea. As the panzers continued moving eastwards, a ring of German and Romanian infantry was left to hold the enemy in the trap. Hoping to breakout, the Russians planned a night assault on a section of the line held by Romanian troops, and launched it on the night of 25-26 July. Confusion in the darkness and an overall lack of Russian leadership caused the attack to falter in spite of the weak resistance. Then, just as dawn broke, the light of day revealed that only a thin line of Romanian troops stood between them and friendly lines.
