The Germans had set up a 'hedgehog' to hold a towm.
Russians are assaulting said town at dawn.
|the game was designed to last 10 turns ... in the event it only lasted 8|
|Russians advanced in three columns, two covered by hills the third, and largest, coming on the flank|
|the center column, not knowing where any Germans were, ended up scattered in the street from the first burst of MG fire|
|the Soviets had taken one of the five objectives before any accurate mortar fire could be directed|
|in the event, that mortar fire was devastating, though the center MGs appear to have run out of ammunition|
|by turn 8 it was clear that there were not enough Soviet squads left unbroken to achieve any more results|
To win this battle the Soviets need some 'bad luck' on the part of the Germans.
