Red God of War - The Soviet Operation Mars, 1942

By the winter of 1942, the Red Army of Workers and Peasants had contained the
German attacks of the previous summer and fall. Now came the time for a whole
series of counter-offensive of its own, designed to cut off and destroy the
weakened Nazi armies.

The northernmost of these would be Operation Mars, aimed at the German Ninth
Army around the city of Rzhev. The Soviet plan, the work of the brilliant
Marshal Georgi Zhukov, called for smashing the already-weakened Germans with a
heavy commitment of tanks and fresh troops. When this first objective had been
reached, a second operation, code-named Jupiter, would encircle and destroy the
German 3rd Panzer Army to the south.

Despite horrible weather and very rough forested terrain, the initial Soviet
attacks went very well. But German resistance stiffened, and as the Red Army
failed to make further progress Zhukov reacted by committing more and more men
and tanks. Suicidal courage only added to the Soviet casualty lists, and by the
time the offensive sputtered to a halt Soviet losses topped 335,000 men and
1,600 tanks.

Red God of War covers Operation Mars using the same game system as Alsace
1945 and America Triumphant. Game pieces represent regiments, brigades and
divisions. Headquarters are vital to activate units and send them into action;
supply is also important to keeping your units at full efficiency and players
must choose how to allocate their resources. There will never be enough of them
to accomplish everything at once.
