Scenario and VASL map available for free on Lone Canuck website . . .On 13 January 1943, the Red Army launched the second stage of Operation Saturn. Four armies of General Filipp Golikov’s Voronezh Front attacked, encircled, and destroyed the Hungarian Second Army near Svoboda on the Don; and pushed back the remaining units of the German 24th Army Corps on the Italians’ left flank, thus encircling the Italian Alpini Corps. On the evening of January 17, the commanding officer of the Alpini Corps, General Gabriele Nasci ordered a full retreat. At this point, only the 2 Alpini Division Tridentina, was still capable of conducting effective combat operations. Over 40,000 stragglers, of what was left of the Italian 8th Army, plus German and Hungarian soldiers fell in behind the Tridentina Division – their hopes were all pinned on the Alpinis to breakout. Reinforced with a handful of German armoured vehicles from the 22.Panzerdivision, this force led the way westwards towards the Axis’ line east of Belgorod, some 200-km away. On the morning of January 26, the Tridentina’s spearhead reached the hamlet of Nikolayevka that was occupied by the Soviet 243rd Rifle Division. The Alpinis’ initial attempts to find a way around the hamlet proved unsuccessful. Deciding not to waste any more time, General Luigi Reverberi, commander of the 2 Alpini Division Tridentina launched an attack on the hamlet, but the assault was grounded to a halt by the Soviets. Regrouping and taking personal command of the next assault, General Reverberi, standing atop his vehicle, urged on his Alpinis forward. Like a dam bursting, 4,000 Alpinis broke through the Soviet defences and raced westward with the stragglers, struggling to keep up before the Soviets could send reinforcements to seal the breach.
