Bukrin-Zerubentsky on the Dnieper, 80km SE of Kiev: [Best played by any method] Motorized infantry units of the Soviet Third Guards Tank Army were able to gain a lodgment across the Dnepr River at Zerubentsky near Bukrin. Quickly, a pontoon bridge was built and the 51st Guards Tank Brigade and the 70th Tank Brigade of the Second Tank Corps were across the river and thrusting toward Bukrin expanding the bridgehead. Responding to the Soviet landings elements of the 19th Panzer Division first delayed then smashed headlong into the advancing Soviet tanks. Determined to throw the Russians back across the river, their orders were simple. "Eliminate the Bridgehead and destroy the Russian forces this side of the river!"
