For 900 days, German troops ringed the city of Leningrad, trying to capture the Cradle of the Revolution while Soviet soldiers and militiamen fought just as desperately to keep them out. Nazi savagery caused the deaths of well over a million civilians.
Repeated assaults failed, as did Soviet attempts to break the siege. "St. Petersburg," raged Adolf Hitler, "must be erased from the face of the Earth." Not until January 1944 did the Red Army finally drive the Germans back from the city's outskirts.
Siege of Leningrad is a supplement based on the German assaults on Leningrad's defenses, and the Soviet attempts to re-open communications.
Mike Perryman has designed ten scenarios, or separate game situations, based on battles that took place along Leningrad's defensive perimeter.
This module is not playable by itself, but requires ownership of our Eastern Front and Road to Berlin games and Red Warriors and Sinister Forces supplements.
Each scenario has its own card in a spiral-bound booklet, just like the popular North Wind and Alaska's War.
