This was a very rewarding and well organised event at one of the best wargames venues imaginable (the Defence Academy) …
The day comprised three phases … Phase One: the Soviet Offensive in which I got to command the German 11th Infantry Division (the tougher part of a mixed Romanian/German front line) … Phase Two: a German armoured counter-punch (which ran simultaneously with the ongoing Soviet Offensive) in which I got promoted to command the 19th Panzer Division … and Phase Three: during which the organisers put away the toys (their way, so better done in peace) while the rest of us clambered over the vehicle collection and listened to a very interesting explanation by Tom of the pros and cons of slopping armour and big turret rings.
Here are some pictures …
