Operation Winter Storm

Cover Final Small_edited-1We are very pleased to announce that Operation Winter Storm, a scenario supplement for Chain of Command, is now available. Twenty-two scenarios from the pen of Richard Morrill cover the attempts by 6 Panzer division to first stabilise the line and then drive north to relieve the Sixth Army trapped in Stalingrad.
