Near Rzhev, 150km NW of Moscow: [Best played as Axis] For most combat troops on the Russian Front, reality was attacking or defending fortified positions. Most of the time it was like World War I trench warfare. The most common battle was not a mobile one, but troops coming out of their trenches to attack enemy fortifications. To show this, we take you back to the summer of 1942. At the same time the battle for Stalingrad was just beginning, the armies in front of Moscow prepared to push the Germans back. This action shows the attack of the Soviet 20th Army against three divisions of the German 9th Army. The battle lasted for most of August 1942, although the German front line positions had been largely overrun in the first day of the attack. It is recommended that this scenario be played with the Russians (there are so many of them...) under computer control. Also, be sure to see the designer's notes document (pogorelo.doc) and the spreadsheet (pogorelo.xls) found in your East Front II directory for more information about this battle.
