Reworking of "40 Miles Behind!" EP96. . .The Russian armies had been falling back under German pressure all summer. While most of the Russian units suffered from inept leadership, there were a few units such as the Russian 2nd Cavalry Division whose brave exploits became legend. Finding a hole in Reichenau's flank, the 2nd Cavalry was able to penetrate the German lines to a distance of over 40 miles, all the while avoiding the ever watchful Luftwaffe. On the last day of August, marauding elements of the Cavalry had a stroke of luck and stumbled upon the German 6th Army Map depot as it was setting up an evening bivouac near Korosten.
Attacker: Russian (Elements 2nd Cavalry Division)
