By July 1944, the initiative
on the Eastern Front was firmly in the hands of the Soviets. At
the northern sector of the front the Red Army had managed to separate
Army Group Center from North, trapping the latter. Heeresgruppe
Nord faced annihilation.
Welcome to DRIVE TO THE BALTIC!, the Soviet drive to annihilate
Armee Gruppe Nord and the German counter-attack known as Operation
Drive to the Baltic! is
an operational level simulation of the Soviet campaign to cut
off German Heeresgruppe Nord from Heeresgruppe Mitte and the subsequent
German counterattack, code named Operation Doppelkopf, to reopen
a corridor to the beleaguered army group which took place in July
and August 1944. The game is intended for two players, one taking
each side, but is very well suited for solitaire play.
Drive to the Baltic has
been unpated with a 2014 editionerrata input into the rules
and a new counter sheet that follows the look of Götterdammerung.
Same colorful map. Color play aid.
