I'm a long time fan of Eastern Front. In my opinion everything happened outside this theatre is secondary or at least overshadowed by the titanic struggle between Axis and Soviet Union. This is the campaign that decided WWII.
This geeklist goal is try to show all wargames ever made to cover battles, operations and the full campaign.
Feel free to add missing and new games

The "brother" game of Liberty Roads. It covers WWII on the eastern front from june 1944 to the fall of the 3rd Reich.

Maybe could be a good idea trying to combine both games.

Bear's Claw is two-games-in-one; featuring two separate and standalone, operational-level treatments of the German advance and the Soviet counter attack from July to August 1941 during Operation Barbarossa.

Kiev-Uman covers the action of German Army Group South, from the beginning of Soviet bold counterattack on 26 June led by the Soviet South-Western Front comprising four full mechanized corps (more than 2,000 tanks), to the closing of the Uman Pocket on 6 August.

Smolensk covers the action of German Army Group Center, from the German 2nd Panzergruppe's crossing of the Dnepr on 11 July, followed by numerous Soviet counterattacks of the Soviet Western Front led by Marshal Timoshenko, to the climax of operations at Smolensk on 9 August.

Hold Fast: Russia 1941-42 is a strategic World War II game on the Russian Campaign. It uses wooden blocks for fog of war and hex movement. Hold two of the three victory location cities at the end of the game. But with mud and supplies a constant factor, German armor always a threat, and winter bringing a boost to Russian resources and manpower, it is not easy for either side to HOLD FAST. “The world will hold its breath…”

A solid and well tested game, Eastfront, litterally expanded. If block games have a core of devoted players, eastfront success is one of the main reasons.

I'm glad to see these three games so highly rated for they deserve it. They simulate the opening stage of the russian campaign. Rules are very detailed, as the OB.
The full game need space and time. It's a rewarding experience and also a learning tool, much more than many books on Barbarossa.

FREE to print and play, this uses my old point-to-point Dark Crusade's highly playable battle round, firing point combat system in a hex-and-counter format - 9 hexes from Warsaw to Moscow.

We've had a lot of fun with it, over here in Oslo's Ares wargames club.
