Events & Announcements / The Battle of Brest Litovsk
« on: January 05, 2018, 01:34:48 AM »
The year is 1944. The Russian summer offensive (Operation Bagration) has succeeded in many of its objectives save one: breaking the German ability to fight on in the East. With bad weather causing the suspension of the Normandy invasion plans, and the Italian mountains proving to be a bit more than a soft underbelly, Russia has been forced to fight nearly alone on the continent for much of 1944. This proved fortunate for Germany, as it allowed them time to regroup and even partially halt the Russian advance through Southern Poland at the Battle of Staszow during the Summer, the conclusion of which sees the Russian supply lines stretched to their limit.

The Russians, however, capitalized on the failures of Bagration and seized the Island of Ösel off the coast of Estonia. There the Russians entrenched themselves in ancient castles and began building airfields that could strike into the heart of Germany and obliterate any hope for German autarky. This plan was thwarted, however, when Fallschirmjaeger from Latvia conducted the first German airborne offensive since the disaster at Crete, and paved the way for a significant German force to seize the Island and capture the new Russian airfield.

Now winter is approaching. If Germany does not attempt to seize the initiative before heavy snows blanket the East, Russia will have an entire winter to reorganize and improve their logistical situation before finally descending on Germany and the rest of Europe with their communist horde. To the north, German forces attempt to regain control of the Estonian city of Narva, which would secure Estonia and Germany’s vital links with its Finnish allies. To the far South, Germany’s allies Romania, Hungary and Bulgaria attempt to seize the port city of Odessa, and trap the Russian troops that are rapidly advancing towards the base of the Carpathian mountains. In the center, German troops prepare to sally forth from Warsaw in the most vital offensive of all. They will attempt to recapture the vital railroad hub of Brest-Litovsk before the early snows become the deep snows Germany knows all too well. In securing the city, Russian logistical support will collapse in the Winter, and Germany may even regain the initiative completely. Failure, on the other hand, could spell disaster.

Events & Announcements / Ösel Campaign
« on: July 16, 2017, 07:11:25 AM »
We return to the year 1944. Operation Bagration was blunted on the streets and fields of Staszow, and while Germany is not yet ready for any major offensives in the East, the Soviet's momentum is temporarily slowed. Even so, sensing defeat, Soviet leadership stages a daring assault on the Island of Ösel, off the Estonian coast. Their invasion succeeds and they immediately begin fortifying the island and constructing air bases. Should these air bases become fully operational, Soviet aircraft will be able to dominate the Baltic Sea and strike deep into the heart of Germany.

Therefore, it is of the utmost importance to retake the Island of Ösel. In the early hours of [REDACTED], elements of the 2. Fallschirmjäger-Division will be dropping onto the southern peninsula in the first paradrop since Crete. After securing the southern peninsula, German troops of the 1. Infanterie-Division will be ferried over from mainland Estonia to relieve the Fallschirmjäger. Support will be limited and the Russians are dug in deep, but who dares, wins.

Events & Announcements / Arma Campaign
« on: December 08, 2016, 02:10:35 AM »
The year is 1944. The Bolsheviks have broken through our lines in White Russia, and threaten to overwhelm all of our forces from Ukraine to Estonia. Elements of the Grossdeutchland have been transferred from Army Group South Ukraine to Army Group Center, and so are being employed as part of a counterattack to retake the Polish city of Staszow. The fighting will be tough, as there are multiple Soviet divisions massing in the area, however if the Grossdeutchland can retake the vital crossroads at Staszow and the airfields that surround it, the Russian advance may yet be halted. The first step is to secure the roads leading into the region, which means securing the town of Brzeziny and, eventually, Szydlow.

The campaign will take place Saturdays at 2:30pm EST, with the first session Saturday December 10th. Manual forthcoming. Mod collection
