Bukrin-Zerubentsky on the Dnieper, 80km SE of Kiev: [Best played by any method] Motorized infantry units of the Soviet Third Guards Tank Army were able to gain a lodgment across the Dnepr River at Zerubentsky near Bukrin. Quickly, a pontoon bridge was built and the 51st Guards Tank Brigade and the 70th Tank Brigade of the Second Tank Corps were across the river and thrusting toward Bukrin expanding the bridgehead. Responding to the Soviet landings elements of the 19th Panzer Division first delayed then smashed headlong into the advancing Soviet tanks. Determined to throw the Russians back across the river, their orders were simple. "Eliminate the Bridgehead and destroy the Russian forces this side of the river!"

An exciting game.
Russian has to brace for a German counter attack later in the game.
John Given
the scenario depicts a mid-war german armored division colliding with two soviet armored brigades. Since the german only had 4 panthers, 9 PzIVf2's, and a smattering of marders, vs. some 3 dozen platoons of T-34's, the end result will not likely be pretty for the axis player.
Thus, what is of supreme importance in war is to attack the enemy's strategy.

The Germans waited to get reins on the map. Soviets used the opportunity to take as many victory hexes and consolidate their positions. When the Germans attacked they fought a slow grinding slog on both flanks while the Soviets tried to press the center.
Many possibilities in this one.

A fun and exciting match for both sides. Allies have the advantage at the onset and germans must pray for timely reinforcements to join the battlefield. Russian player - protect your armor!

Good map, force mix and concept. Both players have challenges from the start. The German recon unit at start can do little to hold back Soviet horde but plentiful reinforcements do arrive to save the situation. The Soviets mush push hard an grab every victory hex they can and then try and hold off the German counterattacks. Good scenario all around!!
