Historical Background:
After the battle of the Dukla Pass on the Slovak border, the Red Army was stopped by a new German defense line. At that time the Soviet command decided to bypass this resistance by taking the valley of Kapisova. On the 25th of October 1944, the 305th Rifle Division and the 12th Guards Tank Brigade entered in the valley bitterly defended by the Germans. During two days, a fierce battle happened in this valley causing a lot of losses to the two belligerents. Finally, when the Soviet troops entered in Kapisova on the 27th of October, the battlefield was covered with dead soldiers and destroyed tanks. The valley of Kapisova had became the Death Valley, "Udolie Smrti".
The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. The rest is history.
