Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.
Today we are showing of our third Eastern Front map, and also our first map from the Continuation War: Sammatus. This map is based on sn00x's Kuuterselkä, and has been worked on by Kev4000, Schism-RVTL and Fuchswiesel.
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 defences 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 defences 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...
