SEE Misc file below for scenario. . .The struggle for the Caucuses was reaching the end of its first period. The German attack had swept the Soviet soldiers thbefore it. Maikop had fallen and now the 17th Army was aimed at reaching the Black Sea at Tuapse. Such a move could mean the end of Soviet operations in the Black Sea, perhaps even drawing in Turkey on the Nazi's side. However, the distances involved were huge, and the German thrust began to slow due to lack of supplies. This allowed more and more Soviet reinforcements to be placed in the mountain passes along the road to Tuapse. An attack along the Maikop-Tuapse railroad offered substantial gains. The newly arrived 101st Jäger Division began to work at tackling the station.
Attacker: German (228th Jäger Regiment, 101st Jäger Division)
