Sequence of play is as follows: Germans begin first, 1.Reinforcement Phase; 2.Supply Determination Phase; 3.Movement Phase; 4.Combat Supply Determination Phase; 5.Combat Phase; 6.Mechanized Movement Phase; followed by the Soviet Player performing these same phases. NOTE: in some of the later scenarios, the Germans "skip" their entire FIRST turn, thereby allowing the Soviets to start the game.
