Don River, 125 kms W of Stalingrad, July 22nd 1942: After the spring battles around Kharkov, the Germans launched Fall Blau, the dual drive on the Caucasus and Volga at Stalingrad. The Soviet army was conducting a fighting withdrawal, but was now pushed into the natural funnel of the great Don Bend, with Kalach as the outlet of the funnel, just a short march from Stalingrad on the Volga. The German plan was to reach Kalach, trapping the Soviet 62nd Army in the bend to destroy it, and thus opening the way to Stalingrad. [Size, large] Designer's Note: Best played HTH. Russian frontline units start out unfixed, allowing more options for their use.
