There are problems with this scenario: it cannot be set-up using the standard terrain tiles of Memoir '44 and the selected extensions. There are too many terrains of one or more types. Please contact the author.
On September 24th, 1943, the Soviet forces attempted to force a crossing of the Dnieper River. To facilitate this attack they dropped paratroopers behind the German lines. Their orders were to help secure bridgeheads across the river. German counterattacks eliminated the paratroopers and repulsed the Soviet crossing.
Allies: 5 cards. You move first. Your first turn will be preceded by a paradrop of a possible 4 units.
Axis: 5 cards.
Conditions of Victory:
The 3 city hexes marked with an 'A' (Kanev) are a temporary medal objective worth 1 medal for both sides. If ANY unit from either side occupies any 1 of the 3 hexes they earn the 1 medal.
Moshny is a temporary medal objective worth 1 medal for both sides.
Korsun is a temporary medal objective worth 1 medal for the Allies.
Therefore the Axis start with 2 medals.

Engineers for both sides as marked. Ignore dice reductions in close assault.
German Rosette armor are 4 figures AND move only 2 hexes.
