About this DLC
During the desperate defensive battles in late summer and autumn 1942, the Soviet high command carefully husbanded its reserves. By November, German attacks culminated in the rubble of Stalingrad and in the frozen foothills of the Caucasus. With their enemy perilously overextended, the Soviets aimed to strike several devastating blows at Hitler’s armies.
Don ‘42 covers the Soviet offensives from Don to the Dnieper during the fateful winter of 1942/43. This time period includes some of the largest encirclements of Axis forces in the war. You will be in charge of fresh Tank Corps as they launch ‘deep battle’ strikes into the enemy’s rear. But be warned: although weakened, the fascist invaders are still dangerous and will remind you that commanding the Red Army means accepting losses.
