Barbarossa to Berlin? Obviously a bit larger in scope than the battle for Germany, but still.

I guess WW2 games involving Japan near the end of the war are not common...

Highly regarded first edition in 1983 replaced by this 2005 version. Bulge of the East anyone?

The AH General had an Up Front scenario: An Incident at the Elbe. A night scenario where the US and Russian forces accidently get in a firefight. It had a ceasefire rule that ended the scenario when day broke and the inevitable "Sorry about that"'s.

I would have to second Berlin Red Victory. ATS is one of my most played and favorite tactical game systems. The map is well done huge very accurate representation of Berlin. There is an upcoming expansion the Furher's Bunker that will add more to the already 16 senarios and two maps. BRV has campaign rules included and a large mix of counters .
