Autobahn zur Holle is a scenario in Steel Division II, set at Moscow-Minsk Highway, N-E of Orscha, June 23rd, 1944.
Immediately after striking Vitebsk, the Soviets launched a second all-out offensive along the strategic Moscow-Minsk highway further south at Orsha.
This German strongpoint, defended by one of the Wehrmacht’s best infantry divisions, the 78. Sturm, had thwarted all previous attacks in early 1944.
But this time, the Soviets gathered massive amounts of air, artillery, and engineer units in support of the elite assault elements from 26th and 84th Guards Rifle Divisions leading the attack.
