Barbarossa - Kicking in the Door

“ Barbarossa – Kicking in the Door …” is a wargames campaign covering the German invasion of the Soviet Union between June and September 1941. It is designed for games in which a stand represents a platoon, such as ‘ Blitzkrieg Commander ’, ‘Command Decision: TOB’, ‘A Fistful of Tows’, ‘ Rapid Fire ’ and others, including those which wargamers may have written themselves. The system generates 150+ hours of gaming spread over 50+ individual battles which are fought over fifteen weekly campaign turns. Bookkeeping is kept to a minimum as players take command of four of the German panzer divisions spearheading the invasion or the Soviet tank and infantry forces opposing them. Straightforward German attacks will be interspersed with Soviet counterattacks, storming city outskirts, holding bridgeheads or trying to break through the fortifications of the Stalin Line. Each type of battle has its own terrain specifications, victory conditions, set up restrictions and likely opposition. Indi
