Death on the Eismeer Strasse ETO (id:#62530)
(Dispatches from the Bunker #41 ID:DB 124)
See Also: Death on the Eismeer Strasse by Monkeys with Typewriters
Designer: Ted Wilcox
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
For nearly two weeks in the harsh weather above the Arctic Circle, Major A.F. Popov and a company from the 6th Guards Engineers reconnoitered deep behind German lines in preparation for the imminent Soviet offensive. The Guardsmen moved only at night, survived on half rations, and maintained strict noise and light discipline for days, they watched and waited. On the night of 6 October, just hours before the Soviet Assault, the 6th Guards lashed out, destroying a radio relay station. On 7 October, a massive artillery barrage heralded the Red Army's liberation of the Kola Peninsula as the Soviet 14th Army drove inexorably towards Petsamo. For the next four days Popov's men blasted German convoys, ambushed isolated units, and knocked out communications targets. By 10 October, XIX Mountain Corps HQ knew the Soviets had at least one company-sized force of saboteurs operating far behind the front lines, attacking convoys along a vital stretch of the Eismeer Strasse - the Arctic Ocean Highway.

2017-04-03(D) X von Marwitz vs Martin Mayers Russian winI played the Russian in this one. Probably, this is the side for which it might be easier to set up. At least, I have not yet been struck with an idea how to set this best up as the German. My opponent decided to have all of his northern forces enter from the more eastern side to form one large combined force. At least in our game it did not appear too difficult to slow the German down enough to safely scrounge all trucks and collect some VP for the roadblock. As it appeared that the Russians were without doubt being able to keep the Germans not even in sight of the Roadblock until after turn 3 and the western half of the north-edge was free of Germans and German fire, my opponent felt that there was nothing to keep the Russian from bringing this home. So without any casualties on either side at this point, the game was conceded to make it a Russian win.
2016-02-24(D) Jason Wert vs Miguel Molina Russian winVery good scenario with tense back and forth. Russians feel the loss of each unit and have to balance protection and exit.
2015-12-27(D) Paolo Cariolato vs Nando Ferrari Russian win
