Panzer Battles - Siivertsi Bridgehead 1944 Available For Download

Danish Volunteers of Regiment 24 "Danmark" outside of Narva, Estonia 1944.
Scenario Description:

Siivertsi, Estonia 06:00 Hrs, February 13, 1944: Overnight, Soviet forces from the 2nd Shock Army have taken advantage of the frozen Narva river to establish a bridgehead opposite the village of Siivertsi on the western bank. The German defense along the river and at the northernmost end of the Narva bridgehead has collapsed. Pioneer Abt. 54 has fallen back behind the Narva defensive line but is only supported by 16 Company Norge Regiment of the 11th Panzergrenadier Nordland Division. A reinforced battalion, Kampgruppe Krugel, is racing north along the river road to crush the bridgehead before Soviet forces can consolidate it.

Note about sourcing:  I've used a variety of online sources for this battle.  The participants vary depending on who you read.  I've relied primarily on the Axis History Forum for a description of Kampfgruppe Krugel and their role in briefly retaking the bridgehead.  Eventually the Germans would commit two regiments to do it, but in the early hours of the Soviet attack it was up to Pioneer Abt. 54, 16 company Norge regiment and the five companies of "Kampfgruppe Krugel."
