“Nowhere else was there such bloody hand-to-hand combat. Nowhere else were bayonets and hand grenades used so widely as in Stalingrad...Our soldiers had only one idea. Stalin had ordered us not to retreat.”
–Vasily Chuikov, commander of the Soviet 62nd Army, Battle of Stalingrad
The Battle for Stalingrad commenced on September 13, 1942. Joseph Stalin ordered the Soviet 62nd Army to defend at all costs; Adolf Hitler believed one final assault by the 6th Army would overcome the Soviet forces. Desperate fighting in the ruins was characterized by merciless close combat and no regard for civilian casualties. The heavy losses of personnel and equipment inflicted on the German army makes Stalingrad one of the strategically decisive battles of World War II.
The Stalingrad expansion adds on to Tide of Iron by allowing players to recreate the vicious house-to-house fighting between the Soviet and German armies in the city of Stalingrad. Players can also engage in tank duels in the streets and alleys of the city as well as launch surprise attacks from the sewers beneath.
Stalingrad includes a full set of Soviet infantry, the German StuG III E and Panzer III, the Soviet T-34/76, and introducing the T-70 light tank.
Tide of Iron: Stalingrad introduces a new campaign game for Tide of Iron players. This particular campaign requires players to manage different resource aspects through a series of linked scenarios as they assume command of either the German 6th Army or the Soviet 62nd Army. This expansion adds Soviet Army infantry, Soviet T-34/76 and T-70 tanks, and German Panzer III and StuG III armored vehicles in city street fighting to the existing world of Tide of Iron.
