Historical Background:
January 1945, Germany retreats on all fronts. In addition to breaking through the German lines like butter, the Russians decide to land in northern Germany.
It’s the small seaside town of Obertrowgrosshof auf See (on the sea) that will pay the price.
After an intensive bombardment from the only two cruisers of the Russian Navy, the soldiers of Mother Russia (Matushka Rosa) launch the assault.
Objective? Break through as fast as possible to arrive first in Berlin.
Well, yeah, even if it means losing some good men, Stalin thinks it would be nice to get to Adolf before Ike. And, if one could destroy the new German chemical weapons factory, that would bonus as well. To make sure that his subtle plan will succeed, the Little Father of the People decides to send the cream of the cream of the Red Army, a regiment of the Guard. The Germans entrenched in the surrounding woods had better not lift a finger.
