Designer: Paul Kenny
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
At the onset of Barbarossa, Romania's primary goal was recapturing from the Russians its lost lands in Bessarabia and northern Bukovina. Although the Russians successfully resisted the initial assaults in the area, by the end of June the Axis had succeeded in establishing a small bridgehead over the Prut River, near Falciu. A major offensive was planned for July 2nd. The main blow was to be delivered by the 11th German Army. Under its command were the best motorized and most experienced Romanian units available. They were to advance toward Moghilev together with the German 11th Corps.

2018-04-24(D) Jonathan Kapleau vs Holland, Donald Romanian win
2018-03-10(A) Andy Beaton vs Richard Hooks Romanian winWent heavy on the left flank, sacrificed my light tanks to force the Russian armour to react to them while my good tanks supported the infantry attack. Fought a huge battle with the Russians for the central building on the road which I withdrew from after the rest of my surviving troops broke through on the left and starting occupying buildings in the backfield.
2018-03-02(A) David Garvin vs Mike Balis Romanian win
2016-11-03(A) X von Marwitz vs Sebastian Hummel Romanian winPlayed this as the Romanian attacker. I put a good 2/3 of my force on the left flank and the rest on the right somewhat in the back to keep the Russians guessing and from redeploying. If the Romanian manages to get the back of the Russian, then it is over and the Romanian will most likely win. This is what happened in our game. I'd say much depends on the tank battle, that is, rather if the Romanian tanks can be used vs. the Russian infantry without being much disturbed.
2016-08-03(A) patrick palma vs Miguel Molina Romanian win
2015-12-30(A) Chuck Dye vs RandyGleising Russian win
2015-12-28(D) Chuck Dye vs Kevin Killeen Romanian win
2015-06-18(A) Jeff B vs Phil Buczkowski Romanian winThe Russians lost 3/4 of their AFVs early and had some bad luck breaking equipment, leaving them with very little to hold back the Romanian AFV-led advance.
2014-10-08(D) mark watson vs Kevin Ryan Romanian winASLOK 2014:
2013-12-05(A) Jeff B vs Chad Cooper Russian winSome lucky shots early put a damper on the advance, which took way to long to formulate.

2011-12-12(D) Andy Beaton vs Craig Houliston Romanian winBad plan, bad dice, a quick knockout for the Romanians
