Nordic Light

This is a war diary written about the Operation Nordic Light scenario of The Operational Art Of War. All events portrayed are fictional and exist only as played out in the computer game.
(September 4, 1992) Tension is building in former Russia. Elements of the 4th and 6th Guards Army has been observed transferring units in Northern Russia, and the presence of strong Airborne Divisions in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania (under the cover of staged regional disturbances) can only signify a preparation for an upcoming military intervention in Scandinavia.

The Finnish and Swedish military headquarters have moved into high gear in preparation for open hostilites. These preparations have been hampered by apparent sabotage against crucial Swedish airbases and radar sites; and because of this, Sweden and Finland has issued a formal request to NATO SACEUR General John Shalikashvili for joint strategic air support.

Adding to this, Finnish border guard forces have noticed probably the most gruesome sign of hostilities: STAVKA High Commander Johan ├ůsbrink has been spotted surveying the front with his binoculars from his personal APC. If indeed this old, hardline general (who organized the entire Soviet defense against the Germans in 1941) is running the show, there is little hope for peace.

To be followed...
