Grognard Simulations has released their new WWII simulation battle game Armored Knights - Guderian Crosses the Desna 1941.
Hop in your tank and get going.


From the release:

Guderian Crosses the Desna is an introductory game that pits a German Panzer Korps against some Russian Rifle division elements at the Desna River crossing of Novgorod-Seversky. This was the Germans foray into the Ukraine that started the operations to surround and destroy the russian army in the Kiev region. Guderian had just tried to convince Hitler that an immediate attack on Moscow would be the best course of action, but returned from the meeting and started right off to the south. His forces would make a hurried attempt to capture the bridge over the Desna and fail at first. But after a more planned attempt they would succeed.
