TURNING POINT SIMULATIONS #20: The Battle of Stalingrad
Stalingrad comes with hard-mounted maps and mounted, die-cut counters. Each battle is presented in a design of low complexity, but high challenge, from some of the industry's top designers.
Bitter fighting went from block to block, then building to building, and -- literally -- room to room. German troops joked that they had, 'Captured the kitchen but were still fighting for the living room.' Soviet soldiers in the city said, 'There is no land on the other side of the Volga.'
But the battle for Stalingrad the city was only part of the German 1942 campaign, with its multiple priorities of political objectives (like Stalingrad) and resource objectives (like the Caucasus). Now, gamers can face the same questions and try to do better.
Each hexagon on the map is about 33 miles/55 kilometers from east to west. Each turn represents one-half of a month. The typical combat units on the map are Soviet Armies, Axis minor allied Armies and German Corps.
