Designer: Chas Smith
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Kampfgruppe Von Oppeln, Panzer Division 6, was ordered to cross the Donets River near Belgorod, but the Russians had destroyed the bridge. The moved to a new crossing point but were hammered by area artillery and air attacks. The Germans were forced to turn south and cross near Solomino. They came into the attack between the 7th and 19th Panzer Divisions. They smashed through this area like a steamroller. However, the Russians had excellent defenses in depth with dug-in infantry supported by antitank nests and tanks. A Tiger and two panzer companies, one containing all the flamethrower tanks, were sent to attack the Ssolojew State Farm.

Last Played:
2019-06-17(A) Martí Cabré vs Alberto González German winAn excellent scenario, with the defender buying fortifications from a list. The German units are outstanding, but many of them will fall. In my case I did a two pronged attack from southwest and southeast using some covering to get to firing positions, I lost three halftracks and a PzIII during the approach, but that gave me the position of his guns, then with aggressive movements I knocked out his five guns and his two heavy machineguns using the flamethrowers, the tigers and all the infantry, leaving the Russians without proper defense to defend a lone position three turns, so on turn 4 he conceded the game.
2017-10-03(A) Michael Rodgers vs Jeff Wasserman German winWent to the last CC Phase.
2017-06-23(A) Tom Kearney vs Al Saltzman Russian winCrucible of Steel linked.
2014-07-13(A) Jeff Waldon vs Will Willow German winVASL
2013-06-04(D) X von Marwitz vs Chris Hofland Russian winA very exciting scenario with a lot of toys. Both sides select some variable forces as part of the setup-process, which is always fun. For the Russian, there is a game before the game when figuring out which fortifications to buy and how to place them, what I like to do, too. When the game starts, what the German can throw at you is impressive if not intimidating. I think some losses, the German will incur during their approach have been factored into the scenario design. Once the Germans get close with their infantry (not before cursing his opponent for his guns), it will get tricky for the Russian. My opponent was maybe a little too audacious with his AFVs which allowed me to take out the two FT-Tanks and some valuable Assault Engineers in HTs before they unloaded. This was the foundation of preserving some valuable real estate for Mother Russia.
