Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
On the Kalinin front, Cholm was a strategic crossroad and also dominated a land-bridge through the marshy terrain nearby. The first major Russian assault on Festung Cholm took place on the 19th of January, and over the succeeding weeks repeated attacks shrank the perimeter. The freezing weather, snipers and lack of supplies made the garrison’s life a misery. To mark Red Army Day, the Soviets launched another major assault using an infantry division with heavy tanks in support. . .

2017-02-26(A) Vic Lauterbach vs EL Russian winIn this oldie from the P-Bears, the Russians don't have 4-4-7s to burn as usual, and things looked bleak when I lost the 9-1 and a 6-2-8 in CC for building Z8, but the German HMG broke and a CH from a KV1 took out the MMG, so my attack got past the Y1-Y10 road and pushed the defenders back past the R1-R9 road. Heavy snow arrived with the German reinforcements and their counterattack boiled down to a couple melees. In the end, they held only 21 locations and lost by one.
