Sobota, 35km NE of Lodz, Poland: [Best played against Human opponent] By the second week of Germany's "Lighting War" against Poland, General von Rundstedt commanding the southern wing of the attack, had advanced so fast that he was running out of troops to guard his left flank along the Bzura River. He asked for more cavalry to keep track of the Poles in this wooded area, but the German Army was short of mounted troops and he was forced instead to press motorized detachments from the reserve 29th Motorized Division into service to screen his advance towards Warsaw. Conditions were ripe for the Polish defenders to strike back at their invaders. On September 9th General Kutrzeba's Poznan Army came charging southward across the Bzura. Near Sobota, cavalry and light armor from the Wielkopolska Cavalry Brigade struck Kampfgruppe Fiedler strung out along the motor highway. Even though guarding against just such an attack, the inexperienced motor troops were surprised at the ferocity and determination of the charging Poles and reacted slowly.

The only hope for the Allies is to strike in force the first couple of turns because the Axis defense is not yet in place

The scenario notes say the Poles (me) were supposed to be on the offensive. The Germans took the offensive, and the Germans had much superior firepower, so I couldn't really duke it out with the Germans without taking a beating. With the Polish cavalry and tanks, however, I managed to get into the Germans rear and try some hit and run tactics, which made it entertaining for me. The Germans had armored scout cars that more-or-less neutralized my ability to hit and run, but at least the scout cars weren't somewhere else.

Tough for the Poles to resist and overcome the German firepower.
