Jon Darlington posted an absolutely amazing after-action report (AAR) on this scenario from 2017 that must be documented here for everyone's benefit: boardgamegeek.com/thread/1734872/iron-ho...talingrad-tide-irons

This AAR goes into great, turn-by-turn, detail on a play-through, supplemented by informative graphics. I found it entertaining as a story in itself, as well as being useful for suggesting tactics and explaining game play.
