In 1941 the Romanians joined the war against the Soviet Union as the Germans launched Operation Barbarossa on 22 June. Their primary goal was to regain the lost north-eastern province of Bessarabia. They had soon committed two whole armies to the enterprise. They captured Odessa in October 1941, engaged in heavy fighting as they advanced on Dnepr River and fought for control of the Crimea. Eventually Romania's two armies were committed to the defending the flanks of the Germans fighting for Stalingrad where they were hit by the Soviet counter-offensive in November 1942.
Background on the 3rd and 4th Romanian Armies on the Eastern front 1942 to 1943. One of the key differences of the Romanians from other forces is the Peasant Army special rule. Before the game you roll a special Peasant Army dice, if you roll a Cross (or a 5 or 6 on a normal dice) you Unit will get the improved Motivation and Skill ratings list on right of the normal rating for the game. Those of you familiar with the Italians will recognise it as similar to the 8 Million Bayonets rule.
