Red Tears Shed on Gray ETO (id:#63065)
(Friendly Fire Pack 11 ID:FrF89)
Designer: Peter Struijf and Chris Mazzei
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Under German-backed dictator Antonescu, Rumania joined its Nazi ally in the fateful Operation Barbarossa. After two months of defeats, the Soviet Army in the Ukraine was reeling. Second line units, factory militia and ageing equipment were thrown into the path of the Axis invaders. On 17 August, the Rumanian 11th Infantry Division approached the town of Karpova, a key railway junction 30 km northwest of Odessa. The factories and warehouses near the railway station were defended by a ragtag company of Soviet units.

2017-10-23(A) Jeffrey wasserman vs ken young Russian winKen is of course an excellent player and allowed me to pick sides. I picked the attacker figuring it would be easier to attack then defend. As the attacker you have 3 basic ways to get the 10 building hexes needed to win. Left, Right or a combination. Ken setup Strong on his right flank filling the forward most building with conscripts, while setting up his 1st line squads with mgs, supported by some more conscripts on the left. The attackers have several problems, they only have a slight edge initially in squads, there is open ground they must cross to get at the defenders, their squads are 7 moral (6 when broken), their tanks enter the board edge rather then starting with the infantry, and their first line rifle squads are 3 firepower (1 per hs) units. I decided to attack on my left flank opening with a cautious approach (mostly assault moves, covered by the tanks). The problem with this approach was that I only managed to take 2 out of 3 left side buildings before his reinforcements appeared. The alternative on this side was to risk multiple 8 -2 or 4 -2 shots. Maybe next time I will try the right flank!
