Company of Heroes
Stalingrad is a six player map loosely based on the epic Battle of Stalingrad. The Battle of Stalingrad was the bloodiest battle in human history, with combined casualties estimated to be above 1.5
million. The battle was marked by brutality and disregard for military and civilian casualties by both sides. The German offensive to take Stalingrad, the battle inside the city, and the Soviet counter-offensive which eventually trapped and destroyed the 6th Army and other Axis forces around the city was the second large-scale German defeat of World War II. This map is in.SGA format; best opened with the Mannerheim COH Launcher. The map utilized SCAR code to keep resources very lean to keep the game from becoming a rapid tech-up match. The goal of the author was to keep this a largely grunt-unit duel--this is a sniper's paradise.There are ample spots for ambushes, flanking attacks, infiltration and general end-running. The AI on whichever side you'll play in skirmish tends to be rather dumb--crank your side up to hard . Conversely, the opponent tends to be wicked-tough, play them hard or expert at your own risk! These will tend to be long struggles (in Annihilate--is there any other way to play?); typically around an hour and a-half or more. Watch your rear-areas! Check it out!
