Reetz, 70km SE of Stettin Germany: [Best played as Axis] Following the Red Army's drive across Poland from the Vistula River to the German border along the Oder in January 1945, the Soviets were forced to pause and regroup. Long supply lines and the stress of maintaining an offensive across a wide front was having its effect on men and equipment and the prospect of further advance with the coming spring thaw was not good. With the Western allies still recovering from the effects of the Ardennes offensive, Guderian, now the Chief of Staff of the German Army, planned a strike against Zhukov's Army's east of the Oder River. On 15 February the 11th SS Panzer Army launched Operation Sonnenwende, the last German offensive of WW II, from southeast of Stettin. On the 17th the 2nd/102 Panzer Battalion from the Fuehrer Begleit Division pushed through Reetz and stumbled into the assembly area for the Russian 47th Guards Tank Brigade and 6th Guards Heavy Tank Regiment.

As the Russian, thought it was over at first, tons of big Cats after a few turns to wonder where the enemy is! Lots of shoot and scoot, finally squeaked out a Minor vic against the German.
