#0705_04 Krutoy Log - 7th Panzer through the MarshesBy David Freer
Krutoy Log, South of Belgorod: July 5th, 1943. (Scenario Size: Division.) 7th Panzer Division commanded by General der Panzertruppen Hans Freiherr von Funck's had to cross the very marshy and wide Northern Donets River. Its primary mission was to push east, breaking through the initial Soviet positions and then take the fortified town of Krutoy Log, while assisting 19th Panzer Division in clearing Razumnoye. The very wide marsh east of the river will require infantry assaults to clear out any defending positions as vehicles can only advance in column along the few trails in the area. Once clear of the marshes, both Razumnoye and the railway embankment will have to be cleared before Krutoy Log can be approached.
