The game focussed on the southern flank of Kursk (I ran the northern flank as a Megablitz game ten years later...) and saw XLVIII Panzerkorps and II SS Panzerkorps assaulting the Soviet lines.
As I recall, Chris provided most of the toys, although I donated some Russians and provided (and commanded) the SS Korps. Will Whyler (better known to history as Zhukov) brought a few toy lorries stolen (or should that be 'collectivised'?) from his daughter. Good man!
The southern table, seen from the west. XLVIII PzK masses for the attack.
Soviet guns. Lots of 'em.
Soviet reinforcements. Again, lots of 'em.
XLVIII PzK in the foreground, with the might of II SS PzK in the distance.

The Soviet second line. We never got through it...
