Designer: Glenn Houseman
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Continuous and furious Russian counterattacks were turning the area around Smolensk into a cauldron of dead and dying men and machines. Battle lines changed by the hour and real estate was often paid for several times. The order to “move forward” was often followed by request to “regroup the line”. Many times the German attacking forces were cut off and forced to fight back to their front lines. One armor battalion had just such a decision to make: attack the Russian’s strong point, or breakthrough to safety.

2015-08-22(D) Jason Wert vs Ron Duenskie German win
2011-05-15(D) Jeff Waldon vs Will Willow Russian winVASL-Monster scenario that was enjoyable to play. The Germans started out for the exit win but lost alot of AFVs and changed mid-game, but the Russian reinforcement had made it to the "Farm" and repelled the German assault for the win.
2010-05-30(D) nathan wegener vs Albert W Russian winVery entertaining scenario with a bit of everything. Our playing had the Russian OBA hit accurately on T1 and take out 3 vehicles. With that and a hot 45L AT gun the Germans were on the back foot from the beginning. Russian cavalry charge resulted in their own quick demise, but in the end there were too many ways to stop the German advance.
