FRIDAY , 6 July, 18UTC , the map Nietjaervi will be played in the 3rd battle of the Into Darkness Campaign


History
  After PSS-line fell, Finns started long and heavy retreat towards U-line. Located by lake Nietjärvi, U-line was composed of three consequent lines of defenses, the last one of them, on narrow sandy ridge, was clearly toughest. General Meretskov's 114th division arrived and launched immediate attack on early morning of 10th of July, 1944, and tried to quickly breakthrough the positions. Finns repelled the initial attack with the support of field artillery. Soviets regrouped for two days and on 15th of July, 0803 Red Army gave fire order for 200 field guns and several katuysha rocket launchers and commenced attack. The men of General Major Tapola's 5th division knew, that the decisive battle of Continuation War would be fought in these positions.

FRIDAY , 13 July, 18UTC , the map Sammatus will be played.


History
  "After securing the crossing of the river Syväri in East-Karelia, the Red Army advanced towards the Finnish Pisi-Saarimäki-Sammatus line. The PSS-line was adequately prepared to face the formidable adversaries, but sections of the defenses were still unfinished. On 23rd of June 1944, the Red Army conducted an amphibious landing at Tuulos on the shores of lake Ladoga just north of the PSS-line and on the 24th the fighting at the line itself commenced. The Red Army managed to puncture a hole in the Finnish defenses at Pisi. With the dire situation at Tuulos, Major General Aarne Blick gave the order to withdraw and abandon the PSS-line in order to avoid any Finnish troops getting trapped in the pocket. However, the message didn't reach the defenders of Sammatus until a day later... "

FRIDAY , 20 July, 18UTC , the map Sinimäed will be played.


History
  "The principle of the Soviet attack in the Sinimäed was an overwhelming frontal shock, with only a few of the attackers presumed to have reached the target. With artillery fire preventing reinforcements being sent in from the German rear, the Soviet 8th Army went on the attack and drove a wedge into the north flank of the 11th Infantry Division. The Soviet main tactical goal, the Grenadier Hill, was to be assaulted by the 6,000 troops of the 109th Rifle Corps. The 109th Rifle Division attacked Nederland, which was covering the hill from the north. The 120th Rifle Division hit the Grenadier Hill from the east. The 72nd Rifle Division assaulted the II Battalion, 3rd Estonian Regiment, which was defending the northern flank. The 117th Rifle Corps stood ready to break through the last of the German defenses. The Orphanage Hill fell to the Soviets with the 191st Rifle Regiment at the head of the attack. This unit suffered great casualties from the fire of the last defenders who in turn were either killed or forced to the Grenadier Hill.... "
