Fighting Retreat is a scenario in Steel Division II, set at Losice, July 30th, 1944.
While most of the German armored forces holding the frontline were hurried back west to prevent Warsaw from falling to the Soviet vanguard, the Wehrmacht infantry divisions left manning the defenses began to crumble at once under the incessant pressure from an ever-advancing Red Army.
The German XX. Armee-Korps, under threat of being encircled, managed to extract most of its troops from a shrinking Sieldce pocket. The German headquarters left a cavalry detachment behind near the eastern Polish town of Losice to cover its retreat.
This vital mission fell to elements from German 3. Kavallerie-Brigade and Hungarian 3. Huszár regiment, which had to face off against their Soviet counterparts from 3rd Guards Cavalry Division.
