Relax soldier, Paris has fallen. You deserve a rest!
The soviet forces met Italian troops in a sparsely covered farm area. A slug fest ensued. An IS2 managed to pin and control three enemy units and keep them busy while Italian mortars and infantry wrecked the soviet flanks in a powerful counter attack. Soviets were on the back foot in a bad way until an airstrike called in by the Italians went horribly wrong and destroyed an entire unit of Italian soldiers.
