Season IV begins with action on two fronts, east and west. In the desert, Patton leads the attack against Kesselring’s defense in Algeria, while Rommel persuades Hitler to give him  free reign for a new offensive to stop O’Connor’s drive into Tripolitania. In the east, the Soviets struggle to contain a dramatic new breakthrough at Voronezh. With reserves low, Sergei Kirov orders Zhukov to use the forces he has been husbanding for the winter offensive of 1942, and the Russians launch a desperate series of counterattacks from their hard won bridgeheads south of the Don. Yet the Germans push through to Volgograd and begin the titanic struggle for the city that was a major turning point in the war. This time, things are different... Particularly in the Middle East where Hitler launches a bold new offensive.
   The action continues into the spring of 1943 with Operation Red Star, Manstein’s Backhand Blow, Operation Zitadelle, and the Soviet counteroffensive, Operation Rumyantsev. In the West, the Allies battle to defeat the 5th Pz Armee in Tunisia, and then plan their next objective in an effort to knock Italy out of the war.
