#a0707_01 Efremov : Hungarian First Blood (HTH)By David Freer
Efremov - Jul 7th, 1942 to Jul 9th, 1942. 2nd Hungarian Army had only arrived in Russia early in July 1942 and was immediately sent to protect Heeresgruppe von Weichs extended right flank. The Soviet Bryansk Front was being forced back by the unrelenting German pressure, but the heavy industry and crossings over the River Mecha at Efremov required a more stout defence. Unfortunately for the Hungarians, the city was defended by 1st Tank Corp. (Size, Small) This is a good HTH or single player game for either side. The Hungarian III Field Corp has had 1st Armoured Division attached to it as it rushes to secure the bridges on the Mecha. Its orders are to clear the city and block the North/South highway to prevent Bryansk Front using this route. The Hungarian player has multiple ways across the river but will have to take a heavy bridge (or build one) to break into the city. The Hungarians do have some Pzkw IV to counter the T-34's, but the infantry will be expected to shoulder the burden of clearing the city. The Soviet player can't be everywhere and will have to hope that some of the wired bridges slow the Axis forces down. Watch your supply lines.
