Description

Knight's Cross of Iron is a dual pack of two wargames designed by Masahiro Yamazaki. Those games are Paulus' 6th Army and Zitadelle: Duel for Kursk 1943.

Paulus' 6th Army is an operational level simulation of the Soviet encirclement operation named "Operation Uranus" and the German escape attempt from Stalingrad from 19th November to 24th December, 1942. This game represents the first significant operational victory of the previously inferior Soviet Red Army over the Wehrmacht. For this reason, the battle of Stalingrad in often referred to as the "turning point" of the World War II. But in this game, the German player has more options of command than Friedrich Paulus, the commander of German 6th Army. So the German player may conduct withdraw from Stalingrad with his troops as he chooses and may defend more effectively than the historical static situation.

Zitadelle: Duel for Kursk 1943 is an operational level simulation of the greatest tank battle in history. Beginning 5th July 1943, strong German forces attempted to cut off the Soviet Kursk salient. Hitler had decided to delay attacking however, until he had sufficient new Panther and Tiger tanks available. In the interim, the Soviet forces reinforced on a scale not seen since World War I, and what is more, they knew the details of the German offensive plan. The defenses were deployed in six belts. As a result, the german summer offensive they named "Zitadelle (Citadel)" was checked, and on 13th July, Hitler informed his generals the Operation Zitadelle was to be called off.

The original edition of Paulus' 6th Army and Zitadelle: Duel for Kursk 1943 were published by Six Angles in 2005 and 2009 as issue games of #10 and #13. This renewal editions are with improved components; both of counters and game-maps.
