2018-03-31(A) Tom Kearney vs Al Saltzman German winDespite a rampant Russian sniper the Germans managed to clear the Nail Factory and most of the Rail Station. Good progress was made in nearly all areas and the Russians suffered heavy casualties. Al failed a PMC at the end of turn three and conceded.
2008-10-16(D) Fred Ingram vs Dave McLee Russian win
2008-05-09(A) Brian Blad vs Bill Mitchell Russian winVery tough for German to win due to the CVP cap but fun nonetheless
