THE ZONE 5 • OVERKILL
A heavily armed NATO riverine force led by the Major Revells’ Special Combat Force uses the Elbe to try and relieve the Warsaw Pact siege of Hamburg. Only partially successful the NATO troops must survive in the battered city until they can launch a breakout.
The city of Hamburg has been surrounded by Warsaw Pact forces for a long time, a siege that is starving defenders and civilians alike. To relieve it NATO launches a riverine assault led by Major Revells’ Special Combat Force. A bitterly fought battle eventually delivers some relief to the city but then the enemy noose tightens again and there has to be another battle when the trapped relief force launches a no-holds-barred attempt at a breakout, employing weapons and vehicles scraped from any source. It is then they discover to just what depths the enemy have sunk in their desperation to maintain the encirclement.
