RO-ZHITOMIR 1943 - A Preview

On the morning of 3 November 1943, the 4th Panzer Army awoke to a massive Soviet bombardment.

The German forces screening the bridgehead were smashed, and Kiev was liberated in short order. 1st Ukrainian Front's objectives were to drive quickly westwards to take the towns of Zhitomir, Korosten, Berdichev, and Fastov. This would cut the rail link to Army Group Center and would be the first step towards the encirclement of Army Group South.

The plan was ambitious, but nonetheless was proceeding very well for Vatutin. Zhitomir was taken by the 38th Army. The 60th Army was at the gates of Korosten. 40th Army was moving south from Kiev. The only break that the Germans caught was that 27th Army burned itself out and went over to the defensive in the Bukrin bend.

===========================

Zhitomir 1943 is the winter version of the 1941 summer map.

This version is siutated november 1943. More then two years has passed
and the tide turned. The Red Army started a fierce offensive to hunt the fascist out of Russia.

In this version the Soviets has to attack and hunt the Germans out of the city of Zhitomir. The map has more destruction and a different capsequence.

Was planning to release it today but i ran out of time....

Need to add more destruction and cover so work to be done....

The overhead with Nikolai Fyodorovich Vatutin

I'm taking some sort of break.

Still working on it but with a certain tempo.

My wife and even her mother said the last
weeks work showed on my face.

Drecks....

Take a break your family is probably right in telling you that you are wearing a "face of fatigue". Your maps are a pleasure and have given people countless hours of fun.

Sit back, relax and enjoy life for a while. :wink1:

Your "Winter" maps looks fantastic!! That is the most historically accurate looking German "Elephant" I have seen in a map. You talents, abilities, hard work, attention to detail, and passion for WWII history speak for themselves in your maps. You have got it down Drecks!!! I as an RO enthusiast and student of history wish to thank you for your labour. Take a break guy, enjoy the family, you certainly deserve it. Your map can wait a little longer even if we can't.
