Stalin's Onslaught

Stalin's Onslaught
The Battle For Orsha, Operation Bagration, June 1944

During the deceptively calm weeks leading up Operation Bagration, the busy Soviets have amassed their armies for the greatest offensive yet undertaken on the Ostfront.

Three years after the German invasion of the Soviet Union, the Red Army stands as battle-hardened troops, ready to finally push the fascist invaders out of Mother Russia!

However, the Germans have not been idle. They have spent months preparing. Fortress towns are connected by intricate trenches and bunkers in anticipation of the Soviet attack. 

A screaming barrage of shells and rockets signals the beginning of Operation Bagration, yet the German defenders hold fast under the terrorizing bombardment.

The Soviet 8th Guards Rifle Corps charges forward to capture the fortress town of Orsha with its heavy IS-2 tanks and specialised assault groups. Here they collide with the German 78. Sturmdivision, veterans of the Battle of Kursk, and armed to the teeth with heavy weapons and StuG assault guns.

The fate of Orsha will be decided here, between these two bitter rivals on the battlefields of Byelorussia!
