Designer: Chas Smith
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
On 5 July, Panzer Division 19 fought against the 228th Rifle Regiment, 78th Guards Rifle Division, smashing its 3rd Battalion and penetrating into the second echelon defenses. Early on the morning of 6 July, Panzer Division 19 opened the attack with an artillery preparation. The 73rd Panzergrenadier Regiment, commanded by COL Koehler, was reinforced with Battalion I, Grenadier Regiment 429. Kampfgruppe Koehler continued to fight the 228th Rifle Regiment, orienting towards Dalni Peski. The Germans broke these defenses during the fighting. The 27th Panzer Regiment penetrated to the east, while the reinforced 73rd Panzergrenadier Regiment redirected its attack to the northwest. This caused them to hit the flank of the 81st Guards Rifle Division.

2012-02-20(A) Paolo Cariolato vs Federico Corso German winA very interesting scenario. This is a long one (7,5 turns) in a large playing area, with the objective buildings far away. There are a lot of options for the defending russian forces; this translates into very difficult decision for the german player relating to forces allocation. My dice were iron hot, while my opponent ice cold, I smashed his first line of defence on the very first turn and settled 2 killer stacks into the 2 level factory and 2 level near the german set up area. One stack kept rate for 6 or 7 times on my third turn, breaking all his units in the second line of defence. On the third turn my pioneere were inside the last stone factory. On the fourth turn it was game over. I took all factory and there was a single good order russian squad on board. I want to replay the scenario because it's a good one and crappy dice roll ruined the fun.
