Overview:
During the first weeks of Operation Barbarossa, the German 8th Army was moving across Latvia towards Leningrad. After crossing the Dvina, the movement of a division was being interfered with by a Russian artillery position near a village. Instead of a frontal assault, a company of about 100 men moved through the woods to attack the positions guarding the guns. The Russian garrison commander had ordered a withdrawal into positions guarding the guns and were awaiting the Germans. . . .

2018-02-12(D) Jeff B vs Ed Donoghue Russian winThis one seems a bit dicey as momentum shifted a few times during the game. I was quite proud of my two crews on the first turn when they both boldly abandoned their guns to ambush an infiltrating half squad in CC (and even created a leader). Germans brashly pushed forward, taking two trenches in the process. By Turn 3 they were looking unstoppable as they closed in on the weakly guarded guns (one of which was manned by a conscript that replaced a dead crew). They made the mistake of advancing too quickly though, leaving both trenches unprotected and vulnerable to recapture. But it never got to that point as their kill stack got broken to a man by a lowly conscript. They were subsequently all eliminated for FTR during the Russians MPh after the conscript crew blasted the German half squad that was shielding them. Two desperate moves during German Turn 5 were both shredded by the guns and, down to one GO leader, the game was over.
2017-09-22(D) Dave Mareske vs Dan Best Russian winGermans failed lots of morale checks giving them no traction. Lost steam towards the end.
2016-08-13(A) Jeff Waldon vs Paul Stuhlfaut Russian winCAWS-An early position advantage by the Germans was squandered by overly aggressive play.
2015-01-16(D) Jason Wert vs Gabe Wert Russian win
2014-04-03(D) Doug Fitch vs MIchael Barnard Russian winThe real hero was the Russian sniper. Activated 5 out of 6 chances. Of those, 3 were the deadly sniper attacks, but one of the other two was turned from a mere wounding to an outright KIA by a bad wound severity dr. The sniper managed to take out the best two German leaders by mid-game, making it very difficult for the Germans to reach the guns.
