Is there an error in the Sequence of play on the map as well? It reads
2) armor movement
The rules have
4) special movement
The VPG version has the same as the rules..
Still, I really like this game!
Did you ever receive a reply to this? I note that in another Frank Chadwick game (C3i #25 "Battle for Moscow") the Sequence of Play printed on its map matches that printed in 4.0 Sequence of Play of its rules booklet and that both indicate Axis/German Step 2 is Panzer/Armor Movement Phase.
To add more mystery, "The Arduous Beginning" (companion game in this series) has "German Special Movement" (for Panzers and reserves) as Step 4.
So maybe each of the 3 games was meant to have Special Movement at a different point in the sequence of play and that the only issue with "Objective Kiev" is which is correct... as Step 2 or Step 4 of the German/Axis Player Turn?
