#a0110_01 Volokalamsk : Vlasov heads West (HTH)By David Freer
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.
