Busting in Balta ETO (id:#63045)
(ASL Action Pack #13 Oktoberfest XXXII ID:AP 123)
Designer: Bill Sisler
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Balta was to be bypassed by the main German force as the attack towards Odessa continued. However, Pioneer-Regiment 744 was ordered to capture Balta to protect the flank of the main attack. At 0840, Kompanie C attacked from the southeast. After an hour, it had penetrated the southeast corner of town and was astride the main street. The primary attack on the norther part of town was initially held up by Soviet air attacks on German assembly areas, but was now underway. Kompanie C Commander Ehrhardt decided to exploit his initial success by preventing Red Army forces from withdrawing to the southwest. Ehrhardt gave orders for the capture of the southern half of Balta and sent out patrols to link up with the rest of the regiment.

2018-01-28(D) Jeff B vs John Fedoriw German winFirst let me say that, unless the Russians don't want their reinforcements joining the main fray, Board 7 is completely superfluous, and these units could've been handled simply by later turn entry instructions. If the Germans play this correctly though, the Russians will need every piece of equipment and man they've got. My opponent wisely realized early on that the only possible way the Germans can win is by taking as many prisoners as possible. Considering that the final tally was 64:56, and 40 of his VP came from prisoners, he was completely right in his assessment. It is also mildly annoying that the aftermath seems to have no bearing on the actual way this battle plays out per the card. So, while I won't say this is a complete dud, it definitely looks much better on paper than it plays.
2017-12-27(A) Tom Kearney vs Al Saltzman Russian winI couldn't get the job done.
