• The Winter War


    BACKGROUND
    The Soviet Union attacked Finland three months after the (official) start of World War 2, on November 30th 1939, beginning the Winter War. Because of this ‘illegal’ attack, the League of Nations expelled the Soviet Union from its ranks. Despite being heavily outnumbered, the Finnish forces held off the Russians, and in March 1940 a peace treaty was signed. Soviet loses were tremendous, and very little was gained from the war.

    CHOOSING SIDES
    Each player rolls off; highest plays the Russians, lowest plays the Finns.

    Der Leiter, I’d like to post some of these to the main website to help get more exposure to them. Can you mark the ones that are ready to be published with some replies? Over the next few months I’ll post one at a time each week or every other week.

    Thanks.


  • I’m just finishing up the Stalingrad scenario, after that I can start doing the scenarios up; most of them need to be updated with Reserves units.
