Betrayed at Buchenau ETO (id:#59417)
(Single Man Publishing ID:BMW10.0)
Designer: Brian Williams
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
SEE Misc file below for scenario. . .1st Ukrainian Front had vied with 1st Belorussian Front for Berlin. However, its left wing was composed of rifle divisions, not as mobile as the tank armies poised to envelope Berlin. Therefore, the march to the Oder River was slower, and it was not until 28 January that the exploitation force came within striking distance of the Oder. Meanwhile, the Germans were deploying mobile units to parry multiple Soviet incursions over the Oder. At one city, Buchenau, portions of the 8th Panzer Division were deployed scant kilometers across the Oder as a buffer against a rush to the bridge at Lubowitz. A reconnaissance platoon supported by two ad-hoc companies formed from personnel on leave covered Buchenau. Four JgPz IVs were also available, held back to go where needed most. On the morning of the 29th, a Soviet cavalry column approached. The halftracks ripped into the column, whose remnants retreated to the north edge of a wooded area. Immediately, more cavalry advanced, this time supported by lend-lease Valentines.

2017-01-21(D) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best German winFirst time playing this scenario and enjoyed it vey much. My Russians struggled to overcome the German Half-Tracks and lost valuable time supporting my assault into the town. I gave the concession at the end of the Russian Phase of Turn 6. I hadn't taken a single victory location and it was clear that I wouldn't be able to get more than two. So a tip of the hat to my opponent's great defensive play!
