Opening Moves:

I organize the Germans into four groups, arranged North to South:

* Group 1: Baess, both Panzers

* Group 2: 2 Infantry (the Mauser SMGs)

* Group 3: 1 Infantry, 1 Pioneer (the Panzerfaust)

* Group 4: Kohl, 1 Pioneer, the PanzerGrenadiers (the halftrack)

Player's note: I'm making some guesses as to what type of units the respective pieces represent. Not having the current issue of Battles Magazine, I understand I could be wrong here.

******

Turn 1:

Roll a 3, so no Soviet Infiltration for now.

Group 1 moves to area 3, Group 2 moves to area 2, Group 3 moves to area 12, Group 4 move to areas 11 and 6

Area 3 battle: Soviet is 292 BDE. 4 crosses vs. 2 stars, Germans roll 2 dice vs. Soviet 1. Rolls: 3 and 3 vs. 4, so Soviets win this round. 1 Panzer is reduced, but Baess is promoted.

Area 12 battle: Soviet is 241 BDE, 3 crosses vs. 1 star, Germans roll 2 dice vs. Soviet 1. Rolls: 1 and 1 vs. 1, a tie and so the Soviets win this round. The Infantry is reduced.

******

Turn 2:

Rolls a 4, so a Soviet unit Infiltrates there.

Group 1 stays in area 3, Group 2 moves to area 5, Group 3 stays in area 12, Group 4 moves to area 7.

Area 3 battle: same conditions as before, rolls: 3 and 3 vs. 1, so the Soviet unit is killed and the area is cleared.

Area 12 battle: same conditions as before, rolls: 5 and 1 vs. 6, so the Soviet wins again and the Pioneer is reduced.

Area 7 battle: Soviet is 256 GD RGT, who ambushes the Germans and reduces the PanzerGrenadiers. 3 crosses vs. 3 stars, so both roll 2 dice each. German adds one dice from Air Strikes, making it 3 vs. 2. Rolls: 5 and 5 and 1 vs. 2 and 3, so the Soviet unit is killed, the Pioneer is reduced, and Kohl is promoted.

*****

Turn 3:

Rolls an 8, so a Soviet unit Infiltrates there.

Group 1 moves to area 4, Group 2 moves to area 6, Group 3 stays in area 12, Group 4 moves to area 9

Area 4 battle: Soviet is sniper Zikan, so Baess is killed, and sniper removed.

Area 12 battle: same conditions as before, rolls: 6 and 1 vs. 2, so Soviet is killed and the area is cleared.

Area 9 battle: Soviet is sniper Manen, so Kohl is killed, and sniper removed.

*****

Turn 4:

Rolls a 5, so a Soviet unit Infiltrates there.

Group 1 moves to area 5, Group 2 to area 8, Group 3 stays in area 12, and Group 4 moves to area 10

Area 5 battle: Soviet is 133 BDE (tank). 3 crosses vs. 3 stars, so both sides roll 2 dice each. Rolls: 6 and 2 vs. 5 and 4, so the Soviet unit is killed, and the full-strength Panzer is reduced.

Area 8 battle: Soviet is 16 GD RGT, who ambushes the Germans and reduces 1 Infantry. 2 crosses vs. 2 stars, so both sides roll 2 dice each. Rolls: 6 and 4 vs. 5 and 3, Soviet unit is killed and the second Infantry unit is reduced.

Area 10 battle: Soviet is 254 BDE (tank). 3 crosses vs. 3 stars, so both sides roll 2 dice each. Rolls: 6 and 3 vs. 4 and 2, Soviet unit is killed and the Pioneer is reduced.

*****

Board is now cleared of Soviet units. Germans win.

Those are hand grenades (the famous German "potato masher"), not panzerfausts.

Panzerfausts were available from August 1943, so certainly they were not used in Stalingrad.
