Barbarossa: Army Group Center, 1941
Publisher/Brand: GMT Games
Product Code: GMT2121
June 1941 — Army Group Center hurls itself through the Soviet border defenses, and its two Panzer groups race headlong toward Minsk. Behind them lie the remnants of the Soviet Western Front — almost a million men in four armies. The Soviets are stunned by the German Blitzkrieg. Their responses are slow, confused, and governed by pre-war contingency plans made obsolete by the speed of the German advance. In little more than a week, the German panzer spearheads meet east of Minsk. Though isolated units continue to fight, the entire Soviet Western Front has ceased to exist!
The Barbarossa portion of GMT’s East Front Series (EFS) is a set of games that covers the operations of the three Axis Army Groups in the Soviet Union from June through December, 1941. Each game portrays just one Army Group’s operations. The series currently consists of six games: Crimea, Kiev to Rostov, Army Group North, Army Group Center, Army Group South, and Typhoon. More are planned. While these games can be linked so that players could play the entire 1941 campaign from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea, they are intended for individual play.
