Borisov, 60 kms NE of Minsk, June 26th 1944: The massive Soviet assault on Army Group Center had ripped a huge hole between the German 3rd Panzer and 4th Armies. Russian armored and mechanized units were now rapidly pouring through the gap to try to encircle the remnants of the once proud German Armies. The 5th Guards Tank Army had been committed and was streaming towards the Berezina along the Moscow-Minsk motorway. Initially, few units stood in their path, then, in an attempt to stabilize the situation, the 5th Pz Division was rushed to Borisov. They were to hold the bridges until any remnants of the German 4th Army could be saved from the Russian onslaught. [Size, large] Designer Note: This scenario has been optimized for HTH play.
