Near Kecskemet, 80km SW of Budapest, October 31st 1944: The 4th Gds Mech Bde had pushed through a hole in the Axis lines with little loss. Now they had a good road out through Kecskemet towards Budapest. They had been told to press on hard, as there were few units, except beaten and disorganized troops, between them and the capital. Unknown to them the Axis had scrambled together a small armored Kampfgruppe, with units from 24 Pz Div and remnants of the Hungarian armor. Their task was to hit the Soviet spearhead and block the road to Budapest. [Size, small] Designer Note: This scenario has been optimized for HTH play.

The Axis has little option but maintain a solid front and in doing so be ground down by the Soviet player. I am not sure what other option was available to the Axis.

A tense little gem.
Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.

Although it seems to lean toward the Soviet player, it is fairly well balanced.

Russians rolled early but German's held Kecskemet.

This is a balanced scenario between equal skilled players. Some replay value.
