Desperate Yuletide ETO (id:#63099)
(Grumble Jones ID:GJ052)
Designer: Kermit Mullins
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
No balance information available
On December 24th, Soviet General Vatutinís 1st Ukrainian Front launched a massive offensive against the German positions east of Zhitomir. Vatutin succeeded in tearing a hole in the German front. On Christmas morning, the German 8th Panzer Division found itself surrounded. With fuel and ammunition dangerously low, the Germans decided to make an immediate breakout. German General Balck dispatched various kampfgruppen to assist the efforts of the German 8th and 19th Panzer Divisions to escape the Soviet encirclement. As falling snow blanketed the woods, the German 8th Panzer Division streamed towards the safety of German lines. With few roads available, it was inevitable that contact with Soviet defenders would be up close and personal. Scattered Russian units tried desperately to move into blocking positions to stop the breakout.
