This game is an outstanding portrayal of the titanic life and death struggle on the Russian front, from the initial German invasion to April 1944 (or German victory). The bright red color of the Soviet territories does a lot to bring the drama of the actual campaign to your table. I especially like the addition of Axis minor country units (even the Spanish Division Azul takes part!). Players can opt to play either the basic game, which still has plenty of realism, or the advanced game, which adds units like light and heavy tanks, tank destroyers and heavy bombers. Aficionados of the war on the Russian front among the A&A player community should definitely NOT miss this one!
