Description

Please note that this is a DTP (Desk Top Publishing) game designed on a desktop computer and all components, including the counters which will have to be cut and mounted, are printed on paper. These are designed by some very well-known designers and are a low cost alternative to today's professionally produced games. On rare occasions, some of these games are reproduced by other companies with higher quality components including die-cut counters but most of them are not. If you believe this game to have a professionally produced version, please contact us with your inquiry and we will help you to locate it if it does indeed exist.

Zhukov's First Victory is an introductory level game of the battle between the Soviet Union and Japan's Kwantung Area Army in the summer of 1939. A series of border disputes between Japan's puppet state of Manchukuo and Soviet-controlled Mongolia since the spring escalated to an undeclared war.

The Japanese sent the 23rd Infantry Division, reinforced with tanks, engineers, artillery and backed by much of their air force, to teach the Russian garrison a lesson. Unknown to the Japanese, the Soviets also sent reinforcements led by General Zhukov. In a series of battles the Japanese gained some success in July, but were crushingly defeated in August. The forces of the Rising Sun would never again strike north, and instead cast their eyes elsewhere for a path to world domination.
