War Of The Rats\\Scenario Size: Small\Best played as PBEM\\26,
September, 1944\\Note: This scenario requires the XFEF Mod designed
by keif149. It will not play with the stock Red Victory game.\\This
is my adaption of the ASL scenario by Ken Dunn and Brian Youse.\\\Stalingrad,
Russia\\Victory Conditions: The Germans win a Major Victory if
they can control all of the buildings represented by the Objective
Hexes. Anything less, is a major defeat. There can be no draws.\\During
the summer months of 1942, German forces had advanced nearly
unchecked across the Russian steppes. With Russian resistance
west of the Don River broken, Hitler ordered Army Group B to
capture Stalingrad. Using the traditional German tactics of lightning
thrusts and envelopment, and with the Russians retreating before
them 6th Army Commander Paulus sent an armored spearhead into
the suburbs of Stalingrad in an attempt to quickly capture the
city. The German tactics failed inside the confines of the city,
however, as the Russians were able to dig in and fight from every
building. The initial spearhead blunted, the Germans committed
more units and soon realized that this was a very different battle
from what they had been fighting. The confines of the city stifled
maneuver, and German superiority in artillery, air power, and
armor were rendered ineffective as the infantry of both sides
intermingled while fighting for each block of the city. This
was Rattenkrieg - the war of the rats.\\\Aftermath: The Germans
continued to try and lake the city, in a bloody battle of attrition.
Gains were measured in terms of rooms and floors of buildings,
with any German penetration met by an immediate counterattack
from an ad hoc force of up to 100 men. By forming these specialized
shock groups for the task at hand, the Russians were able to
withstand the German onslaught.
