#a0122_05 Sychevka : Red vs. Black (HTH)By David Freer
Sychevka, south of Rzhev - Jan 22nd to Jan 23rd, 1942. The capture of Sychevka was critical for both sides. The town was on the major road between Rzhev and Vyazma. Any permanent cutting of it would allow one side to seriously interdict the other. As 39th Army massed for another assault on the town, Bittrich's tired Das Reich troopers dug in to defend against attacks from the west. (Size, Small) This scenario is recommended for HTH play. The Soviet player has to progressively assault out each of the German frontline positions, while preparing to cross the frozen Vazuza River. Fortunately, the Soviet Rifle Regiments are already in assault formation, and just need to move forward and engage. The German player has quality and a level of time on his side and needs to inflict as many casualties as possible.
