#0705_02 Hill 228.6 - SS PreliminariesBy David Freer
The Vorskla River, North West of Belgorod: July 5th, 1943. (Scenario Size: Battalion. German Human vs Soviet AI or Head to Head) Sturmbannführer Rudolf Sandig's II Battalion, SS Panzer Grenadier Regiment 2 was given the task of clearing hill 228.6. The hill overlooked the German assembly areas allowing Soviet observers to call in artillery and rocket fire to disrupt the Axis forces preparations. With the main SS assault beginning at dawn on the 5th it was imperative that the hill be cleared of Soviet defenders by then. This scenario covers Sandig's assault on the hill and Soviets desperate defence to hold it.
