un101: KALIN designer unknown;
please email Alan Yngve if you know!

[Bd 3, NINE turns, GER attack RUS, then RUS attack]
Kalin, December 8, 1941: The Russians launched their Winter Counter-Offensive, catching the Germans off-guard by infiltrating units into German rear-area towns and cities.

*WG261: TO STOP THE BEAR
(CoI version of *WG151, Alan Yngve, 1998)

[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.]

CoI Convention Scenarios
In the early 1980s, a minitures group and a boardgaming group combined to form the Chicago Wargamers Association. This sucessful, but rocky, merger led to a series of well attended conventions in the Chicago area. I usually GMed a 1776 event at these conventions while playing some SL-CoI-CoD "on the side." A big activity of those of us playing the SL system was to seek out whatever scenarios were being offered by the GMs. Hence these scenarios to share.

CWA81-CoI#1: ACROSS THE RHINE (Jeff Cebula, 1981)
[bds 2 & 4, SIX turns, Americans attack HIP Germans]
Rhine Valley, March 24, 1945: As German resistance began to crumble, Patton and his 3rd Army received orders to "take the Rhine on the run." That noted exponent of headlong attack disdained to bother with artillery preparation and immediately flung elements of the 87th Infantry into the river near St. Goar to establish yet another bridgehead across the Rhine.

CWA81-CoI#2: VALLEY OF DEATH (Jeff Cebula, 1981)
[bds 2, 3, 4, 5; SIX turns, Russians attack Germans]
Kharkov, August 7, 1943: Following their victory at Kursk, the Russians decided to immediately exploit the situation and reduce the German salient around Kharkov. The Germans fully expected this and rushed the crack 2nd SS panzer to defensive positions on high ground outside the city. On the morning of August 7th, the Germans watched an incredible armored attack of several hundred tanks rolling forward in a single wedge that seemed unstoppable.

CWA81-CoI#3: THE ZAPUN LINE (Jeff Cebula, 1981)
[bds 2 & 5, SEVEN turns, Germ/Rum attack Russians]
Sevastopol, June 7, 1943: After bombarding the city for five days, von Manstein decided that he had softened up the defenses sufficiently to take them by storm. The souther defense line, atop the Zapun Heights was to be the scene of some of the fiercest fighting the Germans had yet encountered on the Eastern Front.

CWA81-CoI#4: THE SIBERIANS ATTACK (Jeff Cebula, 1981)
[bds 2, 4, 5; FIVE turns, Russians attack Germans]
Southeast of Moscow, November 17, 1941: Everywhere along the front, the Russians were assisted in their efforts by the onset of winter. As the cold intensified, many Germans, lacking adequate clothing, suffered frostbite, and the breakdown of their equipment. The Russians counterattacked the under-strength 112th Infantry Division. Under the pressure of the attack, the troops of the 112th broke and ran. [Note: later published by On All Fronts, as o5.2]

CWA81-CoI#5: ATTEMPT TO RELIEVE KORSUN (Jeff Cebula, 1981)
[bds 3, 5, 10; SEVEN turns, Germans attack Russians]
Lysyanka, February 11, 1944: As the 3rd Panzer Corps drove north to releive the surrounded defenders of Korsun, they came upon the town of Lysyanka just 25 miles south of the pocket. Astride the Gniloi Tikich River, the town held a number of suitable crossing points that would support the heavy German armor. The Russians were determined to stop the relief force from accomplishing its mission at all costs. [Note: later published by On All Fronts, as o6.1]
