Welcome to the Vastness of Russia
June 22, 1941 Germany lanches the greatest invasion in history by attacking the Soviet Union. Army Group South will be in charge of the invasion into southern part of the Soviet Union. Fight the war in the vast expanse of the Ukraine as Adolf Hitler launches his Wehrmacht on a quest for metals, oil, grain and coal. All of the major battles in the Ukraine are included. Your kampfgruppe will participate in the initial crossing of the frontier at the San River and from there the rest depends on your skills as the kampfgruppe commander. You will feel the fear of facing the famous T-34 tank for the first time and the tension of the closing of the great pocket at Kiev. You will also take part in the largest tank battle ever fought at Dubno where 5000 machines dueled over a 4 day period.
You may also be called on to rescue a surrounded artillery battery at Uman or to follow in the path of the British Light Brigade at Balaclava. You will face the struggle of keeping your kampfgruppe advancing in the fall rains the mud and stopping Soviet breakout attempts from the Kiev and Uman pockets. Brent Richards Lost Victories 1941 Mega Campaign will put you on the front lines as part of Army Group South as no other game has.
In Lost Victories 1941 you will find dozens of pictures, backgrounds, historical documents and insights into the 1941 campaign, plus numerous maps to help find out where you are. As you win (or lose) battles, a map will display them for you. For exceeding valor you may receive special awards. Even the Iron Cross itself.
What is a Mega Campaign you ask? Mega-Campaigns are specially designed and programmed campaign systems for Matrix Games Steel Panthers: World at War. You must have a copy of Steel Panthers World At War v7.0 to play Lost Victories 1941 Mega Campaign. Mega-Campaigns are non-linear; they branch into dozens of directions, depending on the victory level achieved by the player and also on his choices during play. In a Mega-Campaign, you not only face standard attack or defend types of battles, but many unusual missions and variants are also available for assignment.
Mega Campaign will draw you into the campaign with its wide range of authentic photographs, hand drawn maps, realistic sound effects, insightful articles and vibrant images associated with each individual battle. YOU get to make decisions: attack now or wait until reinforcements arrive? Press on to victory in the dead of night or attack at dawn? Use your recon to scout out the enemy position while your main force awaits your ultimate command. These decisions effect the battle and each victory or defeat then plays out in the larger context of the strategic campaign. The Mega Campaign itself is a role playing game: you are assigned a force which will succeed or fail on your order and which can bring you glory and honor. Receive medals, promotions, campaign ribbons and accolades from higher echelons with your victories!
You will find yourself immersed in the campaign and a stand-alone battle will never feel the same again. The fact is to truly get the feel of a Mega Campaign one must experience it.
