Designer: Unknown
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
After weeks of bitter conflict in the Stalingrad cauldron, little had been decided. Heavy assaults on the Tractor Works were repulsed with many casualties to both sides. The newly arrived 37th Guards Division of General Zholudev lent new strength to the battered Soviet defenses. After a relatively quiet day of regrouping, each side was set to attack the other. The Germans forestalled the Soviet counterattack by striking first. Zholudevís Guards slowly fell back, but in doing so exacted a heavy toll in German lives for every foot of ground.

2017-05-21(D) Jeff B vs John Fedoriw German winGermans just pushed their way forward little by little each turn. OBA played a key role, both in early clearance of one of the central buildings, and later when the Russians had a chance to make a break into their backfield. Mid-game Russian desperation in CCs didn't pan out either, softening the middle even further. A hot DFPh in Turn 6 sealed the deal and the Russians conceded.
