Starter kit scenario?: Deluxe scenario?:
Despite failing to achieve its main objective, Operation Hubertus had severely mauled the remaining Soviet formations. One of these, the redoubtable 138th Rifle Division, now found itself isolated along the Volga on a 400m x 700m strip of land. Of its remaining regiments, the 650th had but 31 survivors, while the 344th could muster only 123. Daily, the Russians were becoming more cut off, for with the river freezing over, the nightly ferries had to navigate the treacherous ice flows. Still, the troops managed to steadfastly hold on to what little they had, weathering the many crises. One of these occurred when an assault detachment of some 70 Germans armed with machine pistols attacked their thin lines.
