Southeast of Moscow, November 17, 1941:
Everywhere along the front the Russians were assisted in their effort by the onset
of winter. As the cold intensified, many Germans, lacking adequate clothing suffered
frostbite, and the breakdown of their equipment. Taking advantage of the situation,
the Russians counterattacked the underscoring 112th Infantry Division. Under the
pressure of the attack, the troops of the 112th broke and ran. It was the first
time in the campaign that Guderian's' men panicked, the combat ability of the
German infantry was at an end.
The Russian wins by eliminated 15 German units (squads, crews,
leaders) and/or building hexes. Deduct one for each Russian unit that is lost.
An eliminated AFV whose crew survives, counts as one unit eliminated, otherwise
it counts as two units eliminated. Horses play no par in determining victory
conditions. Any building hex which has been on fire or rubbled is considered
eliminated. The German wins by avoiding the Russian victory conditions.
