…. Bukovina 1941

"Note: In order for non-Romanian speakers to better identify the more important cities of Northern Bukovina and Bessarabia, their names will be written in both Romanian and Russian.

The general offensive on the Prut River line, named Operation München, was planned for 2 July. The main role was reserved for the more experienced German 11th Army, with the Romanian Cavalry Corps (5th and 6th Cavalry Brigades) and the German 11th Corps (German 76th and 239th Infantry Divisions, Romanian 1st Armored and 6th Infantry Divisions) towards Mogilev-Podolsky.

The Romanian 4th Army was going to attack with the 3rd Corps (35th Reserve Infantry, 11th and 15th Infantry Divisions) towards Chisinau (Kishinev) and with the 5th Corps (Guard, 21st Infantry and Frontier-guard Divisions) towards Tighina (Bendery). The 11th Corps (1st and 2nd Fortification Brigades) was going to remain on the defense. In the Danube Delta, the 2nd Corps (9th and 10th Infantry Divisions) had to force the Danube and to clean up the seaside up to the Dnister Estuary. Finally, the 3rd Romanian Army received the command of the Mountain Corps (8th Cavalry Brigade, 1st, 2nd and 4th Mountain Brigades and 7th Infantry Division) and had the mission to occupy Northern Bukovina…."

One of the early games from Avalanche Press, "Red Steel," covered this campaign. Unfortunately, it didn't include any historical material on the campaign, which was little-known and difficult to find any information on. You ended up looking at the map and wondering what the Romanians actually did.

Actually, the campaign for Chisinau/Kishinev not the entire Bessarabian campaign.
