As in Stalingrad, many pockets of Germans had been encircled. At Velikiye Luki, artillery and armor punctured through the German perimeter and as the headquarters was overrun, orders went out to save yourselves if you could. At night, isolated groups of Germans tried to breakout. The weakest part of the Soviet corridor lay to the southwest in the area of the 129th Rifle Regiment.

2019-06-10(D) Jeff B vs David Murray German winOnce again I managed to lose this one by the skin of my teeth as the defender. Things didn't start well for him when he lost his 10-2 and a squad to a 2KIA. With the other two squads in the stack automatically breaking, he was down to only 8 VP left in GO. Unfortunately for me I only had three squads able to move the entire game. The one leader who could managed to get himself wounded. He was able to limp around the board broken for a bit, before it turned out his wound was of the mortal variety. David deftly avoided contact with all of my other stranded units, and I was eventually down to a sole squad trying to keep on his tails and break just one unit. But, alas, he failed to find a starshell on Turn 8 and the Germans with their leader-led movement were able to get off the board in the end.
2018-07-28(A) Shane Pask vs German winEnjoyed this game in SL. Still good with ASL version. Germans escaped by turn 7. Kept forgetting Jitter fire. Cpt Tienham was pinned in town and slaughtered in close combat but everyone else made it fairly unscathed. German sniper active when he was needed to allow the north flank to escape. Russian sniper idle. His single shot did little for the outcome. Russians rolling low initially but this did not slow the Germans by much.
2017-10-21(D) LOUIS PADOL vs Garry Kaluzny German winMy first experience with snow, night rules and dummy stacks. Great experience. Just a plain ol' good challenge with a good friend. This scenario is a bit like golf. You hit a couple of great shots and think to yourself, "If I could do that a few more times a round I would be great!" In the end, you know you'll never be a pro, but the game has you hooked. As others have said, setup is crucial. I did okay, just lost the last race down the north side of the board. Great fun!
2016-10-12(D) Jeff B vs Scott Sherer German winGermans managed to sneak off a half squad to hit 8 VP after the Russian high command miscalculated their quarry. Good, tight game.
2015-12-20(D) Michael Dorosh vs Colin Emerson German winLearning night rules. Set up critical. Mine was revoltingly bad. Russians too boisterous.
