Heroes of the Motherland

Heroes of the Motherland

Into the Endless Plains of Russia


The Lock ’n Load Tactical Series advances into World War II’s Eastern Front with
Heroes of the Motherland. The fate of the Soviet Rodina is at stake depicting ferocious battles across the Russian steppe, in the ruins of Stalingrad, and in Partisan-infested woods. From infantry spurred on by Commissars to intrepid Guards and stoic Partisans, the Soviets are poised for anything the German Wehrmacht and SS throw at them. It’s soldier against soldier and tank against tank. No matter the forces or the setting, the Soviets are poised to defend their homeland to the end.
