*WG151: TO STOP THE BEAR (Alan Yngve, 1996)

[Bd 2 & 4, SIX turns, Russians attack Germans(bid)]
East Prussia, Late January 1945: With orders to hold a small hamlet on the East Prussian road network, a scratch force of German defenders attempts to stand in the way of the advancing Russian forces. German patrols had skirmished with Russian patrols to the east during the previous day. But as the cold evening darkness arrived, the Germans shortened their perimeter for the night, thankful that no attack had yet occurred. As the dawn of the new day broke, Soviet panzer engines were again heard to the east, did this mean that an attack would occur today? Could the perimeter have been infiltrated during the night? [Adapted from a description in The Forgotten Soldier by Guy Sajer.]

(Alan Yngve, 1997) [this is a Night scenario]

[Boards 2, 3, 4; SIX turns, Germans(bid) attack Americans]
Outside of St. Pois, France; August 7, 1944: The "Mortain Counterattack," as the Americans would call it, was ordered to jump off the night of August 6/7 and to be comprised of three Panzer Divisions: the 2nd SS on the left (before Mortain), the 2nd Panzer in the center, and the 116th SS on the right; with the 1st SS held as exploitation reserve. The commander of the 116th SS (Generalleutenant Schwerin), for reasons hypothesized but not known, withheld his attack orders from his subordinates. This commander was relieved at 1600 on August 7th and the 116th SS never participated in the attack. This scenario presumes that the attack orders for the 116th were not withheld.

*WG154: THRUST AND PARRY (Alan Yngve, 1996)

[Board 1, SIX turns, Germans attack Russians(bid)]
North of Balaklava, on the outskirts of Sevastopol, July 1942: Once Sevastopol and the Crimea were initially isolated in 1941, this combat zone was considered to be a backwater by most operational commanders of both sides. However, the Crimea was viewed as strategically important by both army commands and the Soviets made two major efforts to relieve the Sevastopol garrison through attacks westward across the Kerch Straits. The siege and on-again, off-again German assault upon Sevastopol brought the first tough building-by-building urban warfare to the East Front, a disturbing portent of what was to come at Stalingrad. This scenario, a hypothetical action placed on the southern schwerepunkt of the German XXX Corps, represents the type of hard fight that occurred during the lengthy assault that would eventually clear Sevastopol by the end of July, 1942.
