Semiluki, NW of Voronezh, 210km E of Kursk: [Best played against Human opponent] The Hungarian Second Army saw little fighting in 1942 until given the task of guarding the northern flank of Army Group B along the Don River to free up German formations for the assault on Stalingrad. But that ended when a sudden counterattack by the Soviet 40th Army in late August forced them to withdraw back across the Don near Voronezh. In support of the initial German attack on Stalingrad in mid September, Germany's allies conducted diversionary attacks all along the front to tie down Russian reserves. Determined to even the score the Hungarian 34th Infantry Regiment launched attacks to recapture the bridges across the Don at Semiluki, northwest of Voronezh. Supported by rafts and hastily constructed assault boats, the Hungarian infantry threw themselves through a rain of artillery at the Soviet bridgeheads and across the river at the reorganized 1002nd Rifle Regiment holding the bridges and heights.

Fighting a stubborn defense and holding on to every defensive position is key for the Russians. Good mix of ground forces.

Victory conditions need to be re-worked. A little too easy for the Axis player to achieve victory.
