 Studzianski - Magnuszew Bridgehead, 9-16 August 1944
9-16 Aug 1944, 2nd Tank Army was launched through the breach in the German 4th Panzer Army's to find a crossing over the Vistula. In this it was supported by the Polish First Army, including the Polish 1st Armoured Brigade.

The Soviet and Polish forces held the bridgehead, and German forces suffered heavy casualties before withdrawing. This scenario uses the Staszow map to simulate this battle.
