An AGS Game held at UCAP Sandpit
on Saturday 4th February 2012
Swanscombe Park Quarry
Without the necessary air and armour support, General Erich von Manstein’s attempt to quickly capture the Soviet naval base of Sevastopol has faltered. This Black Sea port is one of the strongest fortifications in the world, defended by three Naval Infantry Brigades and seven Red Army Rifle Divisions. As Manstein’s 11th Army waits for necessary reinforcements, the Russians take the opportunity to place extensive minefields, MG nests and barbed wire entanglements around the many concrete and timber fortifications that protect the port. Manstein knows that to take Sevastopol, the German military doctrine of bypassing strong points can’t be followed. His two outnumbered and overstretched Armeekorps must resort to set-piece frontal assaults to attain their objectives.
