History

It is the end of Winter 1943 in the southern portion of the Soviet Union near the Black Sea. Soviet forces have turned back the Wehrmacht's attempts at capturing the city of Stalingrad. The Soviets have now built a suitable force that will counterattack against the Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe in the area of the western Kuban River.
