Peiper's III ‘Blowtorch' (armoured) Battalion from SS Panzergrenadier Regt 2 conducts a deep penetration mission to rescue the 320 th “Heart” Infantry Division during the Battle Of Kharkov, February 1943.
Note that the scale of the actual Operation Peiper was beyond the playable parameters of CMBB—the original ambulance column was 60 vehicles long! We have reduced the distances and force sizes to manageable levels while maintaining the basic structure and objective of the historical mission.

Best played as H2H or as the Germans Vs Soviet AI; for the first attempt playing against the AI use ‘stick to scenario default'.
When playing the AI upping the AI combat experience will give it's actions a more aggressive edge (minimum +2 bonus for experience).
This is not a quick hit action. Play this with the mental approach you would play a CM operation.
This is a very large action (big map) so best to be using a pretty fast machine.
To help you assess the terrain and keep track of the action this scenario has a topographical map associated with it. You can download it here.
