Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
With the German summer offensive of 1942, “Operation Blue”, Hitler hoped to force a decision on the southern front. In an attempt to complete a large-scale encirclement of the Lower Don, the city of Rostov became the natural center of operations. The initial breach of the outer city defenses had been made by panzers of the III and LVII corps, but the city’s center was the battlefield for assault parties and not armored formations. To make matters worse, the NKVD garrison, familiar with street-fighting techniques, was determined to defend Rostov to the last bullet.

2014-02-13(A) Lee Bray vs German winThis scenario felt a little like old-school SL; a mostly infantry action on Board 1. It's 11 turns long, but the victory conditions are quite tough, meaning the whole board must be traversed so I felt under pressure from the start. This made me quite aggressive and by turn 3 I had attempted to work my way around the Russian flanks on both sides of the board, helped by a berserk hs and one of the infantry howitzers on one of them. I thought I'd been stopped, although the move did prompt a mass Russian withdrawal, but then my MMG and its accompanying stack broke a key unit and I had sufficient force to break into a building behind his front line. From there it all unravelled for my opponent, helped by the timely arrival of my PzIV which punched straight the centre of what was left of his line and set up in the backfield. Some pretty hot German dice followed and he conceded on Turn 5. I don't think this is unbalanced; I was pretty lucky in that most things I tried went right - even my berzerk hs survived! I'd play it again as it seems there are other options to the ways we played it.
