Bogodukhov, Ukraine: 9th August, 1943. (Scenario Size: Division. Soviet Human vs Axis AI) In the early morning hours of August 9, General Katukov of the 1st Tank Army has received a directive from Stavka. The directive reads:The Stavka of the High Command considers it necessary to isolate Kharkov by means of a rapid cutting of the main rail and road lines of communication in the direction of Poltava, Krasnograd and Lozovaya to speed the liberation of Kharkov. Katukov having already been blunted from crossing the Merchik by advance elements of SS Division Totenkopf, moves the powerful 6th Tank Corps forward, ordering them to seize the Merchik River crossings and then drive towards the train depot at Kovyagi and outflank the Germans in Kharkov. With the 10th Mechanized brigade moving in support on their eastern flank, Katukov believes the 6th will help him regain the initiative.
