Loughton Strike Force will be putting on a game covering the German attacks against Pavlov’s House, in Stalingrad 1942.
It will cover a slice of the battlefield from the Volga all the way up to the Germans lines, where the battle itself will take place.
This is the mill area, where the Russian rear lines and reserves will be, and is the ultimate German objective. Pavlov’s House is centre left, next to the park and children’s play area!
The game will have a separate rear board section covering the Russian reserves as they struggle over the Volga to reinforce Stalingrad. The O Group battle will take place across the park, Pavlov’s House and the mill factory complex.
The ground the German’s will have to cross to initially secure Pavlov’s House.
Both objectives can be seen here, Pavlov’s House and the mill. Russian reserves can be fed into Pavlov’s House via a trench that leads up from the mill.
So, study the terrain then come along to Salute and try your hand with O Group and see if you can succeed in driving the Russians into the Volga, or hold out against the invaders and save Mother Russia!
