Traces of War is a two-player game that simulates the intense fighting between Axis and Soviet forces after the battle of Kursk during August 1943 to March 1944. A major Soviet offensive is launched against a German mobile defense. Will the breakthrough be successful?
A hex represents roughly 20 kilometers of terrain from side to side. Each turn represents a month. Combat units are divisions for the Axis and corps for the Soviets.
