LENINGRAD ’41 begins right after the great tank battle at Raseiniai where the Germans met the heavy KV tanks for the first time, but the Soviets proved that lack of air cover could wreck major tank formations. The Germans have Riga and two bridgeheads over the Daugava River and are ready to invest the Baltic Republic and finish off Leningrad. To make the things even worse the Finns are advancing to recover land they lost in The Winter War, but will they go farther?
What happens here can change everything!
Leningrad not only had great symbolic value for morale in the USSR, but also had important factories and was the main base for the Soviet Baltic Fleet. What’s more, the area to Murmansk is an important route for Lend Lease Aid. And all of these factors are reflected in the game!
Victory or defeat will tip the balance of power on the Eastern Front!
LENINGRAD ‘41 is a wargame covering the German Army Group North offensive aimed to seize Leningrad.
Although based on a historical event, the two players can modify the course of the operations, with the German player trying to achieve a decisive victory before the winter comes, and the Soviet player playing a fighting withdrawal, while waiting for Reinforcements and until ready to strike a decisive blow at the invaders.
The game is recommended for two players, but has excellent solitaire suitability.
