New Scenario - The Panzer Count's Ostfront: Götterdämerung in Silesia

Recommended Posts

Silesia, Dawn 25th January 1945: General Rybalko’s 3rd Guards Tank Army has turned 90 degrees to the south and cut off German forces fleeing from the disaster at the Vistula. Nothing seems to stand in his way to breach the last major defense line left to the Wehrmacht—the Oder River south of the Silesian capital of Oppeln. Elements of his 9th Mechanized Corps have already overrun a majestic estate. It is Strachwitz’ ancestral home, Groß Stein. The German High Command desperately scrambles to send forces to hold—or blow-- the key bridge at the Oder river town of Krappitz. Strachwitz , still recuperating from a terrible vehicle accident in the fall, has risen from his hospital bed on crutches and assembled a force of volunteers.

This is the final scenario in The Panzer Counts Ostfront CMBB series.

Map size: 2.9Km x 3Km

Total points combined: Approx 11000 combined.

Authors: George McEwan and Charlie Meconis

Designer’s note: we describe this scenario as “semi-historical” because there is very little solid detailed information on the operations of Strachwitz’s last command in Silesia during the chaotic final months of the war. We have chosen a carefully researched actual battle setting—the fight for Krappitz, Silesia—as a plausible and interesting setting for this last battle in our Strachwitz series

Two versions available for testing over at TPG:
