Gertsovka, North West of Tomarovka: July 5th, 1943. (Scenario Size: Division.) With the success of the prior day's assault by Major Rode's I Battalion, Generalleutnant Franz Westhoven's 3rd Panzer Division was given the task of crossing the Ivinka/Berezovyi River and capturing Korovino. With Großdeutschland attacking only a few kilometres to the east it was critical for the hill complex around Korovino to be cleared. The heights around the town allow the 210th Guards Rifle Regiment to call both direct and indirect fire into the flanks of the attacking German Divisions. The river complex was to have a major influence on the 3rd Panzer's advance with the Russians cleverly employing every natural defensive benefit of the terrain.

On first blush, I didn't think the Russians had much of a chance. But Dennis couldn't get through the bunkers and his armor didn't arrive until the scenario was almost over.

The Axis do have a lot of choices where to cross. Hard to break the Russian defense without taking heavy losses. The armor support really arrives too late to make a difference.

OK - but reinforcements are too late for the Germans to chance a win

Too easy for the Soviets to sit back and shoot German herrings in the barrel. Perhaps if the German armored support arrived sooner it could be more of a game. My poor opponent made little headway until direct fire support arrived. Only then was he was able to begin systematically neutralizing the numerous Soviet defensive works
