Dedication: THE RUSSIAN PORTFOLIO is dedicated as a token of remembrance and respect to the Polish, Russian, Jewish and other Eastern European peoples who suffered, endured, and contributed so much to Allied Victory over Nazi Germany and its Axis partners.

THE RUSSIAN PORTFOLIO is a diminuation of its "big brother": THE BARBAROSSA FILE.

under the following conditions:

Schools, libraries, and museums are free to make and keep copies for in-house educational use or nonpermanent loan/circulation ... in gratitude for the fine education and research assistance I have always received from such institutions.
An individual is free to make one personal copy of THE RUSSIAN PORTFOLIO for his/her own personal use.
All other rights--including publishing rights--are reserved to me.

A Request: If you do assemble and play this free game of mine, PLEASE let me know at ELCOAT@hotmail.com what you think of it and whether, after more than a couple games, you think one side or the other has an advantage. Thanks!
And now: Here are TRP's components, to print off and assemble so that it may be played. Players-students will also need a single six-sided die (or chits numbered 1-6, to be drawn out of a hat) for the randomized combat results tables.

Some of TRP's players have done their own components for the game, both for person-to-person boardgame play and for remote computer play as well! Here are some of the websites:
