50 kms east of Munich, June 12th 1985: For the first two days the attack in the south had gone reasonably well, but many roads were jammed, or mined, and a lot of bridges were damaged. As a result there were Czech units spread all the way back to the Danube. During the night, the Czech 4th Army commander made the decision to halt and regroup. Fortunately his rear echelons with fuel and ammunition were efficient, as were the tank recovery crews. By noon the next day the plan had been changed to punch a hole through the thin German line with 3rd Czech MRD, then launch the rested 9th Tank Div loose in the enemy's rear. The choice of whether to go to High to the NW, or Low to the SW to be made later. This short respite was welcomed by the Germans, who had units trying to set up a front line, as they waited for reinforcements coming from either Ingolstadt, or west of Munich, to try to stem the tide.

Victory points determined well. On the last turn, I went from a draw to a major loss and throughout the later turns I was flirting with a minor victory. A challenging scenario.

A hard scenario to win from either side. Probably easiest as WAPA.

An exciting and balanced scenario with the Warsaw Pact having to make exacting choices on whether to focus their advance north (High Road) through Freising or south (Low Road) to Munich. NATO also has options on where to bring in reinforcements that adds flexibility and unpredictability to the High Road or Low Road scenario. WMD can play a pivotal role with WP use of chemicals countered by NATO's retaliatory tactical nukes. Good replay value. A recommended Danube Front '85 scenario!
