Designer: Pete Shelling
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
As Manstein delivered the “back-hand blow” to Soviet forces at Kharkov, the Red Army was beginning to develop tactics on par with their German counterparts. With the huge victory at Stalingrad to build upon, propaganda switched from politics to defense of the Motherland. So, too, would the morale of Soviet forces improve. This was never more apparent than at the defense of the train station at Taranovka. A platoon of 25 soldiers from the 78th Guards Infantry Regiment banded together to hold off numerous assaults by panzers and supporting infantry.

2016-05-30(D) Michael Dorosh vs Michael Rodgers German winA little schooling by MR. Was pleased with my minefield placement. Tried a fall back defence but it really wasn't deep enough and too much set up on the objectives. Not to make excuses, but my artillery didn't fire a single round, drew red chits off the hop. Lost 3.5 squads and some SMCs to Michael's 2. Learned a lot. Not as close a game as I would have liked, but Russian didn't succumb until my last Player Turn. Germans had an efficient attack. Did get to use a DC to blow a hole in a wall, then assault into CC through it.

2013-08-28(A) Jeff T vs Jerry Russian winJerry crushed me in this one, I didn't even get a single victory building of the three required (I conceded in German turn 4). He got killer rolls on his 80mm OBA and just took out my entire attack, he broke squads in 3 hexes after a fortuitous random movement 'inaccurate' FFE and by the time I could regroup, it was too late. Didn't help that one of my 75s malf'd his gun and I couldn't get any good attack results. A solid loss for the Germans, a good defensive setup and mistake free play for Jerry's Russians.
