War on the Eastern Front engulfed small Axis satellites like a hungry wolf. None were spared. Hungarians, Romanians, Yugoslavs and Finns clashed with the Soviet giant and Nazi supermen, as well as one another in a senseless yet hellish struggle. Tanks of all marks, and outdated weaponry met the first futuristic MBTs as the miles and weeks ticked away until Gotterdämmerung in Berlin and the end of what was unleased with Barbarossa.
