By: Antoi - Last update: 02/09/2021

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.

Historical Background:
Old town: aug 9 – sept 2: After the initial attack by the Armia Krajowa, The Germans began to
reinforce Warsaw with tanks, infantry and an armored train. After the capture of Wola and the
Jewish Ghetto the German commander, general Von dem Bach decided to capture “The old town”
next to form a wedge between polish troops and to reach the Vistula to hold off an eventual Russian
offensive. The old town contained many medieval houses and was heavily barricaded. Due to fierce
house to house fighting and artillery, many fires broke out in the old houses. Polish troop fought a
bitter fight on their barricades, the Royal castle and the town hall. Eventually the superior numbers
became overwhelming and they retreated to the city centre via the sewers.
The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. The rest is history.
