|2017-12-13||(D) Ken Rutkowski|| vs ||J Miller|| German (SS) win||Lost the hill before my reinforcements could enter. The reinforcements were cut down trying to cross open terrain. Even so, the game still came down to the final CC roll.|
|2017-12-04||(D) Jeff B|| vs ||Ed Donoghue|| Russian win||If the Germans don't get positioned on the hill to take on the horde of Russian reinforcements I don't see any way they have a chance. Hex BB3 proved to be a death trap for the Germans in our game. Russian tanks pulled their weight by causing the elimination for FTR of two HS and a leader (who also left behind a MMG and LMG, which were scooped up by a Russian squad that had rode into battle). Next turn a CH wiped out two full squads and another MMG. The Germans had taken half the hill but the remaining trenches were packed to the gills with salivating Russians so they called it a day.|

|2016-01-31||(A) Michael Dorosh|| vs ||Colin Emerson|| Russian win||Germans definitely need to take the bulk of the hill before the Russian turn 3 reinforcements come on. High ground has many advantages, not least of which is not fighting in Alpine Hills which really restricts lines of fire on the hill mass itself. Managed to bust into the trench line easy but had two more to take on the west of the massif before the arrival of reinforcements. Resigned after the MPh of Turn 5 with no real chance to pull it off. Tough fought battle, but may want to consider giving the German the balance.|
|2016-01-31||(D) Colin Emerson|| vs ||Michael Dorosh|| Russian win||Russian troops need to sit tight in concealment as the watch the approach of the German Supermen.
Super stacks easily tore apart the Russian defenses of 5 squads. Alpine Hills really make this a challenge, leads to lots of point blank fire situations.
I felt very overwhelmed during the first 3 turns, being steam rolled by the Germans. 2 concealed squads snuck over and managed to occupy Lvl 3 VP hexes.
Reinforcements rolled on and the tide turned drastically. I basically mobbed the last 2 VP hexes and laid residual everywhere.
Germans should rush and eliminate all Russian defenders before Russian reinforcements arrive. Take over the defenses and destroy the Russians as the approach.
German morale of 8 and the short range of the Russian infantry is a challenge|
|2015-05-15||(A) X von Marwitz|| vs ||Martin Mayers|| German (SS) win||I had the Germans in this one. Nothing really subtle for the Germans here. GET UP THE HILL FAST! Basically, my take was that the Germans need to be lodged in the trench system when the Russian reinforcements enter. My opponent set up his Russian initial force mainly directly west of the level 3 hills in Foxholes on level 2. Thus, the Germans would have to move ADJACENT and take Point Blank Fire to get at them. I moved aggressivley doing just that during German turn 1 hoping to have some unbroken and upinned squads in place to put point blank Advancing Fire on the Russians. Unfortunately, 4 Germans squads and the 10-2 broke. But the rest was able to put some pressure on the Russians in his turn 1 and to make retreats difficult. The broken Germans came back quickly and after some units drew DFF, the 10-2 and three squads with SW rounded the southern level 3 hill hex to get into the Russian back. This stack was attacked by a final fire shot, 1 squad killed and the 10-2 went berserk with the remaining 2 squads charging its attackers and getting a foothold in the trenchline. From then on, the Germans pushed the Russians out of the trenches quickly only taking minor losses and the Russians having only one 527 in the last trench of 58U4 remaining wich got subseqently engaged in CC and 2.5 broken squads and the wounded leader pushed back to 58V0. So basically, the Germans were ready in force in the trenches to await the Russian reinforcements in Russian turn 3. The Russians moved cautiously in their turn 3 and took only medium losses. Early during Prep Fire of German turn 4, 10-2 King Kong made his presence felt along with a low roll sending 3 Russian squads to their doom. Now, things were not looking good for the Russian who still had to cover open ground up-hill, so he conceded. All in all, this scenario is pro German I think. The German must not be timid and not lose time to capture the trenches early. If he manages that, then things are hard on the Russians.|

|2012-11-24||(D) Richard Carter|| vs ||Steve Cummings|| Russian win||The Germans tried to outflank my defense moving around to the north. I had my initial units far up front. Given the pine woods and gullies though I was able to shift enough guys over to bog him down a bit on the northern side of the hill. I then overwhelmed one of his stacks that did manage to sneak around the East side of the hill and reinforce the eastern level 3 hexes. I was helped by some lucky rolls w/ my tanks though to wipe out a stack of units in one of the trenches. It was a quick and bloody fight.|
|2011-03-03||(A) Kermit Mullins|| vs ||Scott Waites|| German (SS) win||Germans seize hill by Turn 3-- 9-1 slain by Soviet Sniper and reserves on the board. Next three turns should be a blast. Germans carry the hill on turn 4 and turn back the Soviet attacks to retake.|
|2011-01-01||(D) Steve Bowen|| vs ||GC|| Russian win||Russian Assault Gun ran off huge ROF run with two critical hits and tore up the German defenses. Otherwise the German would have won since Russian mangled the uphill attack. Lucky dice saved the Reds. |

|2009-05-05||(A) Ian Willey|| vs ||?|| Russian win||Fun game but the alpine hills and pine trees took some getting used to. This could have gone either way but finaly swung hard onto the russians after my large FG failed to even pin my opponents big stack. From there it got ever harder to reach the win. Never the less still lots of fun|
