Hi,

This scenario is purely from some nightmare that does not:

  1. represent a scrap of history about the battle
  2. the presentation is so large that it also enters into the league of escapism ( see 4)
  3. I very much doubt the Russians had so few DC
  4. There is a lot of detailed info about the German attacks and none of these are incorporated into the reinforcement schedule
  5. AFV: I very much doubt represents historical accuracy
  6. Fictitious fortification allocation per "fortified locations"
  7. Why oh why such a simplistic VC condition ?

We are going to play "Men of Steel", probably this weekend.
Where might I find more information relevant to your points #4 and #5?
Thank you very much.
