Designer: David Lamb
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Following the disastrous retreat in the Caucasus of ‘Army Group A’, falling back onto its bridgehead on the Kuban peninsula, continuous attacks by the Red Army continued unabated. During February the Russians attempted to outflank the German positions by landing behind their lines in tow inlets south of Novorossisk. For the next four months both sides fought on, one seeking to expand and the other to eradicate the bridgehead. Combat was particularly heavy in the estuary, where both sides contested important causeways and islands. On the morning of 17 June, a night raid was delayed until just before dawn. A sudden downpour and the resulting fog protected the Russian attackers, concealing them as they rose out of the mud and brackish water to begin their assault.
