HISTORY:

The war in Hungary in 1944 moving into 1945 saw some of the most brutal and relentless combat of the second world war. The snow and the ice made for difficult fighting during this period for all soldiers on the battlefield. The advance on and encirclement of Budapest is the time period we will be portraying.

This event may have snow on the ground so we will be portraying the advance on Budapest and eventual encirclement of German Forces there.
