Description

Turkey remained neutral until the end of World War II by adroitly playing off the Axis and Allied Powers. They, in turn, wooed the Turks with economic and military incentives to join their respective coalitions.

The map area portrays the Leningrad region of the Soviet Union, encompassing about 600 miles from east to west; each hexagon is about 12.5 miles. The various game pieces represent the historic combat units, as well as all necessary chits to facilitate game play. Soviet combat units are primarily divisions, the German units are divisions and Kampfgruppen and are color-coded by nationality and command affiliation. Combat units may represent from 2,000 to 14,000 men, and 50-400 armored vehicles.

Components: One 22" x 34" map & 228 counters.
