From the frozen shores of Lake Ladoga to the burning ruins of Stalingrad, relive some of the most intense battles of WWII, where entire Army groups disappeared faster than a single battalion on the beaches of Normandy. This expansion follows Expansion one, the Terrain Pack. While the Terrain Pack focused on new terrain and rules, the Eastern Front expansion is devoted to the ferocious battles that pit the Axis and Soviet forces against each other. Also included is a scenario drawn from the Russian-Finnish war, and an Overlord scenario of what turned out to be the largest tank battle in history: Kursk.

Eastern Front is an expansion for Memoir '44 and cannot be played without the base game. Eastern Front adds the Russian army to the game, as well as a lot of new snow-covered terrain 'hexes' and new battle scenarios. While you can play these on the original Memoir '44 board, aesthetically it is much better on the Winter/Desert board, which is another expansion sold separately.
One particularly interesting rule in the Eastern Front is the Russian Command rule. This is a handicap for the Russian side as each turn the Russian player must select and place face down the card he will play next turn, meaning he is always a step behind. Eastern Front also contains rules for minefields, snipers, and ski troops.
Overall, an interesting expansion which adds depth and variation to Memoir '44.
