Tide of IronTide of Iron: Stalingrad Expansion

$79.99 SRP

“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.

This expansion includes:

-12 urban terrain  maps

-8 new scenarios (including 4 linked campaign scenarios)

-Strategy cards that let you

experience the brutal street fighting of the Battle of Stalingrad


Fight through the ashes of the ravaged city to claim Stalingrad as your own!
