A regimental-scale game of the two-month struggle for control of the 30-kilometer long industrial town that sat on the west bank of the Volga River. Stalingrad: Verdun on the Volga is divided into several 2-player Scenarios (based on the historical German offensives in September and October). The game enables you to re-fight one of the most important Battles of World War II in a single evening (a victory point check at the mid-way point that can keep games under 3 hours) using Rinella's favorite area impulse game system:
- Turns represent 4 days of historical time.
- The unit scale is roughly regimental, with some battalion-sized formations, versus battalion scale with some company-sized formations.
- Only 3 units types: Infantry, Armor and Pioneer.
- An accurate modeling of German combat attrition. Based on most recent publications utilizing post-Cold War Soviet sources (primarily Glantz).
