On 22 June 1941, German,
Romanian and other Axis forces launched a
surprise attack against the Soviet Union.
This touched off the most vicious war the
planet has ever known, as millions of men
(and sometimes women) fought fanatically in
a war of annihilation that ended only when
the Red Army of Workers and Peasants planted
its banners on the Reichstag in Berlin.
Eastern Front is a game based on the
opening year of this intense struggle, with
112 separate scenarios
based on the actual battles waged in the Soviet
Union during 1941.
The game is the crown jewel of the Panzer
Grenadier game series, portraying
the leaders, infantry and tank platoons and
artillery batteries deployed during the campaign. In terms of wargame play value, Eastern
Front is packed with exciting fun. The
660 playing pieces include the troops and
weapons of the Soviet Red Army, the German
Wehrmacht and Romania’s Armata Romana
from 1941. The fearsome T-34,
the Hammer of the Proletariat, is present
along with Germany’s PzKw IV and Romania’s
inadequate R2. German commandos, Soviet tank-hunting
platoons, Romanian cavalry, and more make
for a varied spread of pieces. The eight mapboards
represent typical terrain found in the Soviet
Union, and are placed together in may possible
combinations to form the playing surface.
