My long time gaming friend wanted to revisit the venerable Bathtub Barbarossa campaign we played back in the nineties. We got the booklet out...it's out of print but you can usually find a copy on ebay. Or so I am told. We thought it would be neat to try the 'new' Command Decision Test of Battle out in the framework of the campaign.
We had tackled the project in the late 1990's and played WW2 in HO/20mm scale just about once a week for a couple years, actually getting through three of the strategic turns over the entire theater before we ran out of steam. We decided after some reminiscing that we'd try a scaled down version this time, working the attacks north from near the Baltic sea to the Pripyet marshes.
I am taking the part of the Soviet, Roger the Germans and their allied forces. We finished the fourth game generated from the map move. Here are some game photos.
This last photo shows the antitank battalion in the rifle brigade tactically withdrawing across the bridge to pass through Kaunus.
Despite a spirited defense, the 10th Rifle Brigade will probably retreat as the road out of Kaunus to the North has been compromised by an earlier battle.
Don't worry about the Napoleonics, I'll have some new units up shortly.
