Battle for Moscow


An excellent free web based version of Frank Chadwick’s classic intro war game,  Battle for Moscow.  Simple, but not simplistic, it is a depiction of the German advance on Moscow in Operation Typhoon in November and December of 1941.  You can play solitaire with all rules enforced or command the Germans against Soviet AI.  Go here to play it.  Enjoy!

As a side note, I knew a German immigrant, since deceased, who as a very young man served as a landser in a German army scouting unit.  He recalled vividly seeing the spires of the Kremlin through his high powered binoculars in December 1941.  He was subsequently captured by the Soviets and escaped before they could execute him.  He was eloquent, and profane, as to how Hitler managed to lose the War in the East.
