KHARKOV, UKRAINE, 11 March 1943: Local Russian command had drawn a line through Kharkov where they would make their stand. The Gosprom building and Kharkov Zoo lay along this line. The Zoo, and surrounding Shevchenko Park named for a WW I general, was the southern flank of this line and the Russians were determined to hold it. The III Bn/1st Panzer was tasked with taking this part of town. The German plan was to split their force, with one group circling south and attacking through the park-like zoo. Stbf. Hanson, commander of the II Bn/1st SS Panzer Gr Regiment., led the attack through the park, supported by 7th Panzer KP under Ost. Astheger and Ost. Soreman commanding 2nd KP of 1st SS Panzerjäger Abteilung. The Russian forces, a piecemeal collection of the 208th SRB 51st NKVD units, militia, the Third Tank Army and the 48th Rifle Division, were slowly pushed back from the square.

The module includes two sheets of 280 ½” die-cut German and Russian MMC/SMC/SW counters, plus a sheet of 176 AFV/VEHICLES/ENTRENCHMENTS in 5/8” size—everything you need to play (just bring your standard markers). You also receive 10 scenarios (all playable on the map provided) in color format, and color special rules in 3-hole format.
