As the German Army closed the pocket around most of Western Fronts Armies near Minsk, both Col.Gen. Guderian and Col.Gen. Hoth turned their eyes toward their primary object, Smolensk. Hitler, worried that the panzers would advance too far too fast, ordered them to halt and help the infantry reduce the pocket. Guderian and Hoth, were convinced that Smolensk, along with Vitebsk, could be captured quickly before the Red Army had a chance to dig in on the east banks of the Dnepr and Dvina Rivers. Against orders, they continued to advance. Brushing aside the Soviet counterattack at Lepel, they stood ready to capture prize. (83,300 sq km - 168 Turns, Explicit Supply)

One of the greatest Tiller operational campaigns, lots of twists which don't make anyone fell like deviating too far from history. Definitely recommended.

It seems the goals for the german are too hard.

very interresting scenario for both camps
If you are on your own, overlapping in green pastures with the sun on your face, do not be troubled, for you are the Champs Elyseum, and you're already dead!
