Notes to link the chosen board configuration with the terrain of the real battle

  • Kolkohz town represents the village of Ponyri. The Fortress setup on its most southern hex represents the train station, heavily fortified by the Russians.
  • The hill “129” west of Kolkohz town represents the hill 257.1. That hill was a tactical target for the Germans nearly as important as the village of Ponyri itself. In the real battle, that hill was East of Ponyri but this fact is not a significant factor for this scenario.
  • The Bednost hill on board 2 represents hill 240.9 from which the Germans launched their main offensive onto Ponyri on July 7th 1943.
