Back in the railyard, the Germans pull out all the stops, bringing in their remaining reserves, including two squads of Pioneers armed with satchel charges, flamethrowers, and a highly motivated Captain Vogel (a 2 leader). The Russians were down to mostly militia and stragglers/survivors from previous battles. The Reds built a defensive line they could fall back to using fortification points but most never got there - movement cards on both sides were at a premium. The Germans were able to inch into position on their left and provide fire, but the squads on the right never made it out of their smoke. Vogel and the Pioneers were responsible for the victory, inching ahead on Advances, going into Melee, and laying down withering fire against the Russians. The battle ended with a sniper shot on a broken squad, and the campaign ended with a German victory on the R2 map.

The Germans are now dug in across the railyards and the Russians tasked with retaking it. Everything seemed to be going for the Germans - superior troops; well positioned; great kill numbers against the green half of the Russians, who were slow to move in the first half of the game; and lots of time checks, almost one every turn for a while. But the Russians slowly consolidated and threw their best troops at the German right, using smoke to cover their movement. Once they got close enough, the battle was decided in their favor through a series of Melees. Back to the ravine...
