Designed by award-winning designer Ted S. Raicer, Stalin's War is a unique Card-Driven Game (CDG) on that most-gamed of subjects, the Eastern Front in WWII. The use of CDG mechanics adapted from Paths of Glory and WW2: Barbarossa to Berlin to a hex-grid land wargame allows players to experience both the broad range of strategic and tactical options of a CDG, and the operational armored maneuvering of a typical hexagon East Front design. The large hex map stretches from Berlin to the Urals and Murmansk to Baku, allowing the full range of strategic possibilities open to both the Axis and the Soviets. Terrain types include clear, rough, forest, swamp, mountain, desert, city, major city, fortress, river, major river (the Dnepr, Volga , Don), and rail lines. Turns are seasonal (with a special turn for June 41) running to Summer 45.
ZOCs in Stalin's War are 'sticky.' Except during Exploitation or Advance after Combat (or Combat forced retreat), you can't leave an enemy ZOC unless you leave a unit in the hex being exited OR you spend an OPS to activate that hex.
And there are plenty of Events to play, representing leaders, weapons, reinforcements, and the effects of the war on other fronts. The 1944 Warsaw Uprising, Manstein’s Backhand Blow, Stalin and Hitler’s meddling, the Battle of the Bulge, Soviet Amphibious Invasions, Airborne Corps, even Soviet mice (which nibbled through the wiring of dug-in German Panzers in the fall of 1942) are included.
