Overview:
Throughout the grueling month of October, determined and costly German assaults had steadily shrunk the Soviet defensive perimeter. By October 24, Panzer Division 14 had reached “Bread Factory #2” just to the south of the Barikady and commenced its assault the next day, only to be rebuffed by the fierce defensive fire of the 138th Rifle Division. The remnants of Motorcycle Battalion 64 were crouched in the ruins opposite the Bread Factory, slain and wounded leaders scattered about them. There seemed to be no way across the deadly street, but Sgt. Esser could no longer stand the tension. Screaming “Forward!” he led his twelve men out into the road and into the adjacent building.

2017-09-22(A) Jeff B vs Shaun Andrews German winIf a SK scenario could feel like Stalingrad this would certainly be the one. Fighting over a couple locations two hexes away never felt so brutal. Upon setup I thought this one looked quite easy for the Germans. They seemed to have more muscle (with more on the way) and were within an arm's length of their objective. But once the metal started flying things were definitely hairy. Perhaps our game was a bit colored by the hottest 45L I have ever seen in my life. I will have nightmares about this one. It didn't even lose concealment (we played full ASL rules) until Turn 4, and must have averaged a handful of shots every turn with its seemingly continuous ROF. The Germans seemed to break/rout/rally/replace every turn for the first few without much progress being made. They did manage to sneak a HS into the victory buildings on Turn 3 and generate a hero in the process. Meanwhile a battle was being fought for position in the southcentral part of the map. The Russians managed to grab the VC buildings back on their Turn 4, but the Germans were gaining the upper hand in the south. Turn 5 is when the rubber met the road and the Russian dice, which had been so hot throughout, finally failed them. The Germans passed two key MCs, finally broke the MG nest, and consolidated their position in the south, so the Russians conceded with one turn to go. Great and fun game!
