Yelnya: Crushing the Salient
While Guderian is away, Zhukov will counterattack!
As August turns into September of 1941 and the Nazi hordes push ever deeper into the heartland of Mother Russia, General Zhukov's Reserve Army has been given an opportunity to counterattack.
Obeying the Hitler's orders, General Guderian has left only a handful of his Infantry divisions to hold the key road and rail center at Yelnya while he leads Army Group Center's Panzer divisions south to take part in another great encirclement.
While it may not yet be time to drive the hated fascists out the beloved Rodina, pushing them back, away from Moscow, with their tails between their legs is always worthwhile! Besides with the Nazi panzers out of the way, what better time to trial the new assaults theories while conducting an encirclement of your own?
Yelnya is designed to be an easy to learn and fast staying game for two players while still being a challenging puzzle for both sides if played solitaire.
