Screenshot of a game of Drive On Moscow in progress.

Drive on Stalingrad (DoS for short) is a two-player, low-to-intermediate complexity, strategic-level simulation of Fall Blau (Operation Blue), the German attempt to conquer the Stalingrad and Caucasus areas of the southwest Soviet Union in 1942. The German player is on the offensive, attempting to win the game by seizing key areas on map. The Soviet player is primarily on the defensive in the first scenario, but he is also given the chance to run a full-blown counter-offensive in the second scenario, 'Operation Uranus'.

Game play of the main scenario encompasses the period that began with the Germans' launching of 'Operation Blue,' their offensive toward Stalingrad and the Caucasus on 28 June 1942. That scenario ends on 15 September, after 11 weekly game turns. The second scenario starts on 19 November 1942, with the launching of the Soviet 'Operation Uranus' counter-offensive, and continues for six weekly turns to the end of December, when historically the German attempt to free their encircled 6th Army at Stalingrad ground to a halt.
