Starter kit scenario?: Deluxe scenario?:
While the Tridentina led the vanguard of the Alpini Corps’ attempts to break out of the Russian encirclement, the Cuneense Division served as the rear guard, repeatedly fighting off Soviet pursuers so that the main body could press on to the west and possible safety. The front of the column, realizing the town ahead was occupied by the enemy, diverted to Nikolajewka. Unfortunately, the Italians had no working long range radios left, and the only way for the Alpinis’ chief of staff to get in touch with the following divisions was through messenger or personal contact. These efforts failed. The result was that on January 20, 1943, major elements of the Julia and Cuneense Divisions ran head on into strong elements of the encircling Soviet forces.
