End turn 1 Battle for Stalingrad

I imagine that the commanders for both stunned at the course of events. While the Soviets took a pounding they did inflict some heavy losses. 2 Tank companies, 4 Engineering platoons, and 8 Battalions of Infantry. You can see what the cost in terms of men on the right side of the image.

The territory lost is another interesting element. Surprisingly deep gains in center combined with strong moves along the shoreline seem to bode well for the Germans. While to the left of the image a huge pocket has been formed and the Germans maybe able to wipe all of those forces out.

The problem for the Germans is they will likely see a fair few Divisions become combat ineffective by end of turn 3.

Brutal game to solo.
