Stalingrad is a name synonymous with great sacrifice, and as a cautionary -- the graveyard of ambition. A Soviet arsenal city and gateway to the Caucasus, in 1942 Stalingrad became the focal point of one of the pivotal battles of the Second World War – a battle that, but for Hitler‟s ego and poor military decisions, may never have happened. Hitler originally planned to drive Army Group South into the Caucasus to seize the Soviet oil supply, but instead he drove much of it into destruction amidst the lethal ruins of Stalingrad.
Stalingrad: Heroes All is a supplement for NUTS! Although intended to be played from the German side, Stalingrad: Heroes All plays just as well from the Soviet side. It can be played solo, cooperatively with all players on the same side or head to head.
