Grey Steel, Red Storm - Regimental Scenarios in the Soviet Union 1941-1943

Selected Option:
Grey Steel, Red Storm is a book of scenarios for wargamers set in the Soviet Union between June 1941 and June 1943 during World War Two. 
They are adaptable to a number of sets of rules currently available in which a stand represents a platoon such as ‘Blitzkrieg Commander’, ‘Command Decision: TOB’, ‘A Fistful of Tows’, ‘Rapid fire’ and others, including those which wargamers may have written themselves. Each player will field around a regiment or brigade of troops in each scenario.
Part One presents a brief overview of the war and some background information to the scenarios. This includes a terrain key, notes on ground scale, timescale, base sizes and some suggestions for additional optional rules. Part Two presents fifteen scenarios with an historical background and German and Soviet briefings covering  the mission; the table layout; Orders of Battle; victory conditions; design notes and historical notes.
Eleven of the scenarios have appeared in earlier, truncated form in Miniature Wargames with Battlegames or The Journal of the Society of Twentieth Century Wargamers. All have since been amended and some changed substantially (new table layouts and/or new Orders of Battle). Four scenarios are entirely new and have never appeared in print elsewhere.
A4, 105 pages, 19 colour illustrations. See preview contents for scenario listing.

It starts off with a brief history of the war, with high level maps. In a VERY nice touch, the scenarios are highlighted on the maps. So, for each one, you can easily understand the context of the scenario in regard to the phase of the war, and the loc [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
