In the summer of 1941, German panzer spearheads pushed towards Leningrad, Cradle of the Revolution. Adolf Hitler declared the city's capture to be the leading objective of Operation Barbarossa, the June 1941 sneak attack on the Soviet Union. Desperate to stop them and preserve the city of Peter the Great, the Red Army repeatedly made valiant efforts to stop them, and just as often, the Germans rolled over and around them.
By August the city had been isolated from the rest of the Soviet Union, but its defenders refused to yield. For 900 days they held against savage Nazi bombardments, writing an epic chapter in the story of the Great Patriotic War.
March on Leningrad is a supplement based on the German drive to capture Leningrad, and the Soviet defense of the approaches.
Mike Perryman has designed ten scenarios, or separate game situations, based on battles that took place south of Leningrad between June and September 1941.
This module is not playable by itself, but requires ownership of our Eastern Front and Road to Berlin games and Red Warriors and Sinister Forces supplements.
Each scenario has its own card in a spiral-bound booklet, just like the popular North Wind and Alaska's War.
