Firestorm: Bagration
Pre-Campaign Introduction

The Firestorm—Bagration Campaign is about to begin and the players have lined up their armies to strike forward to victory—Operation Bagration is underweigh! There 

In Firestorm—Bagration, there are two start-dates to play. The first start-date is 26 June 1944 where the players join Operation Bagration in progress, just after the intial Soviet thrusts broke through the German defensive line. The second Extended Campaign starts on the frontlines as they stood on 22 June 1944, at the very start of Operation Bagration. For our campaign, we have chosen to go with the 26 June version which lasts for four Campaign Turns (the 22 June Extended Version has six turns).
