Volokalamsk - Jan 10th to Jan 14th, 1942. 20th Army had advanced from Moscow to Volokalamsk in a month. Vlasov's Army had helped clear Solnechnogorsk and then Istra and finally the highway to Volokalamsk. Success bought reinforcement and Stavka released 2nd Guards Cavalry Corp to take advantage of the more open terrain towards Shakhdvskaya. Facing 20th Army was V Armee Korp from 4th Panzergruppe. Though weakened the Germans were beginning to stand their ground and had even pulled 6th Panzer Division into reserve. (Size, Medium) This scenario is recommended for HTH. This is a good Soviet Army vs. German Korp scenario. The Soviet player has numbers on his side, including four strong Tank Brigades. Additionally, the 2nd Cavalry Corp is available but is in a depleted condition. With 4 days to travel 30 km's the Soviet task looks easy but the improved German supply will be of great assistance to the Axis forces. The German player will find that the more open terrain will favour his mechanised/motorised troops but time will be his biggest challenge.

As Russia, I had a hard time disrupting the Germans by fire and should have been more aggressive assaulting. Took the 3 100vp locations plus the south-most 500vp location to get the draw.

Another scenario of Germans playing for time and the Russian Steamroller slowly moving across the map and killing Germans

I think the Moscow '42 winter scenarios get the "feel" of this period of the war just right - hordes of Russians overwhelming the outnumbered but superb German forces. Volokalamsk is just that.
