The Largest, Bloodiest Battle of the Century

Command a fire brigade of soldiers on the Russian Front in this real-time strategy game set in World War II featuring unequalled detail, realism, and scope. Play as either the Soviets or Germans as you orchestrate your squads' attack, defense, and survival over four grueling years of the grandest and bloodiest war the world has ever seen. To succeed, you must guide your men through the mortal dangers of war while physically and psychologically defeating your enemies. Your soldiers are counting on you. Don't let them down!

Command the same men throughout the entire four-year campaign - from the initial German invasion of Operation Barbarossa, to the pivotal Russian victories at Moscow, Stalingrad, Kursk, and Berlin. Or rewrite a chapter of history by rallying your German troops to take Red Square.

Manage your squads by resting, refitting, and upgrading them between battles. Follow each soldier as he progresses from green neophyte to seasoned veteran and advance in rank to command more units.

Over 300 specialized squads - 100 weapons, 60 soldier types, and 80 distinct vehicles and antitank guns. Includes 120-mm mortars, flame-throwers, rocket launchers, half-tracks, and off-map heavy artillery barrages.

Create your own "what if" scenarios with Close Combat III's enhanced Scenario Editor. Craft single or multi-map battles and set deployment zones, objective locations, requisition points, and available units.


Unique artificial intelligence that affects every individual soldier by:

  • Modeling realistic soldier psychological profiles during combat
  • Experiencing the effects of strength, ability, and morale
  • Rallying around new commander units on the battlefield
  • Returning fire when fired upon and zeroing in on targets
  • Adapting strategies to counter your playing style

Accurately depicts WWII squad-level warfare, including:

  • True line-of-sight and line-of-fire gameplay with elevation effects for terrain and buildings
  • Direct and indirect fire with limited ammunition
  • Ability to protect your men in buildings, pillboxes, and trenches
  • Vehicle facings that affect armor protection
  • Continuity from battle to battle, including destroyed terrain and burnt wrecks
