Overview:
In the wake of the astonishing gains of the German armored spearheads, the infantry had to mop up bypassed strongpoints. Taking the ancient fortress of Brest-Litovsk fell to the 45th Infantry. Moats, river branches and canals divided the Citadel effectively into four separate islands. The Soviets had to withdrawal from the Central Island but 70 men were cut off and remained in an ancient church. To their rescue came the 1st Battalion of the 133rd Infantry Regiment. . .

2017-09-23(A) Jeff B vs Shaun Andrews German winI feel I have yet to get a true feel for this scenario as both times I've played this they effectively ended very early. Thankfully I was on the delivering end of both games. The first time I played this back in 2014 my Russians rolled a "6" their first turn and made an aggressive push on the Citadel, managing to get two squads into stone cover. The Germans had setup about 40% of their force south of the church and the rest started in the west. Despite the rather weakly protected front in the south the Germans were tentative in crossing the canal early. Meanwhile the Citadel continued to get barraged and by the end of Turn 4 only a single encircled German squad was left holed up in the upper level. With reinforcements still a good ways off the game was all but over. In this playing I took what my previous opponent had shown me to be a good route of attack in the south and went all-in in my push across the canal. The Citadel was surrounded by some heavy firepower, the biggest threat being a dual MMG nest led by the 9-2. The door was opened for the Russians on Turn one already when they had some great attacks but, unfortunately for them, they had rolled a "1" on their move roll so they couldn't capitalize. The Germans and Russians traded blow for blow, both sides breaking the other, only to rally back and return the favor. Eventually the MMG nest was busted up, allowing the ground level to be the safe haven the Germans had initially hoped it would be. Meanwhile the Germans had stormed across the canal in force. They were probably only a couple turns away without enough resistance in their path so the Russians conceded.
2017-07-08(D) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best Russian winBloody game from start to finish. Russian delaying forces on Board 23 were able to stall the primary German Schwerpunkt trying to get to the H3 Building. Meanwhile the Russians were able to drive quickly into the H3 building and take control. Great, hard fought game.
2017-06-30(D) Dan Best vs Mike Bistodeau German win
2016-10-21(D) Jeremy Busby vs Scott Hasson German win
2016-06-25(D) Dave Mareske vs Ryan Ellett Russian winGermans split their forces and ended up conceding by turn 5. The victory building was soon to fall. All the tanks fell to the Russian 45Ls with some good rolls.
