Victory at Stalingrad Thu, 08 November 2012 00:00
Is back up, http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=9798

This mission is all about Operation Uranus

/Operation Uranus (Russian: Operatsiya "Uran") was the codename of the Soviet 19-23 November 1942 strategic operation in World War II which led to the encirclement of the German Sixth Army, the Third and Fourth Romanian armies, and portions of the German Fourth Panzer Army./

It isn't fair (50/50) but neither was the historical counterpart, but it should be tense. With 10 medals it runs well but there is so little terrain it should never feel bogged.

Enjoy.

Thanks Jokull.

I played it once and lost (not well understood the map, so logicaly defeated), and I wanted to play this tactical and interesting scenario again to improve myself.

Thanks Jokull !

I liked it when I had the opportunity to play it.

(maybe it's because I won with both sides vs Nygaard the other viking - a kind of revenge after he had beaten twice on his Hueishan docks... Rolling Eyes )

OK, truly a very interesting map.
A brutal one, since units are very close to each other from the very start !

This gives me a chance to rescue field marshal von Paulus.

I must have mistaken him with another fine German officer who's name starts with von. Smile
