Historical Notes: On December 31, 1942, a German force consisting of the pocket battleship Lutzow, the heavy cruiser Hipper, and two divisions of destroyers intercepted the British convoy JW51B. The convoy was defended by five destroyers and four corvettes. In addition, two light cruisers were 30 miles away and closing to join the convoy.

The battle began as the HMS Obdurate, which had been shadowing the German destroyers sighted thirty minutes earlier, moved to protect the convoy.

Published in October, 1984, this scenario includes all the ship cards that are used in the scenario.
