Barbarrossa pictures

 
A couple of weeks ago I ran a cracking weekend of 3 x 1941 Russian Front games for Big Chain of Command at the Wargames Holiday Centre for Mr Freeth - Here are a few pictures from the weekend, which was based around the German drive to Cherkassy in August 41
A great time was had by all, many thanks for a great weekend played in an excellent spirit

Excellent looking table, strange to see it so cluttered after the expansive Napoleonic games.
Great models too, glad you all enjoyed it.
Best wishes,
Jeremy
