World at War #31: Dubno, 1941

New from Strategy & Tactics PressWorld at War, Issue #31 featuring the insert game Dubno, 1941. During the opening days of Operation Barbarossa, the German First Panzer Group drove deep through the Ukraine with its ultimate objective the great city of Kiev. Leading the thrust was the 48th Panzer Corps. The Germans broke through the Soviet frontier defenses, but the Red Army quickly counterattacked with several mechanized corps. While the Germans were outnumbered, especially in tanks, they had superior command control and tactics, allowing them to defeat the Soviets piecemeal. Moreover, the Red Army at this stage of the war was in the midst of reorganization, and suffering from severe logistical shortfalls. Still, the Germans got a surprise when they ran up against T-34 and KV tanks which were far heavier than the German AFVs, and were largely impervious to their anti-tank fire, except for the infamous 88mm flak guns. Following several days of mobile battles, the Wehrmacht routed the Red Army. Yet, the Germans were delayed long enough to cost them a quick capture of Kiev, a failure which would have considerable ramifications in the next several months of the campaign. Components: One 22” x 34” map & 228 counters. Price: $30.

World at War #30: Hinge of Fate

New from Strategy & Tactics PressWorld at War, Issue #30 featuring the insert game Hinge of Fate. This new game is primarily meant to examine the strategic alternative history possibilities inherent in the campaign that could’ve occurred within Poland and the Rhineland in September 1939 if the French had resolved to keep their promise to launch a “major offensive” into Germany within a week after that nation invaded Poland. The action in that scenario is fought on two maps, East and West, and also allows for the possibility of a last-minute change of side by Stalin. Price: $30.
