WWII Grand Strategy At Its Best!
Take charge of land, sea and air forces as supreme commander and change the
outcome of the Second World War in Europe! As the supreme commander of the Axis
or Allied forces, the player shapes the fates of the nations at war during the
Second World War in Europe. Political options, research and upgrade of
equipment, management of supply and resources and the strategic employment of
one's armed forces are some of the keys to success. With limited phase
restrictions and wide open turns you are in complete control to try many
different approaches and entertain just as many possible outcomes. The future
of Europe and perhaps ultimate glory is in your hands.
6 major campaigns to play from either the Allied or Axis side and each begins
at a key moment in history and lasts until you achieve ultimate victory or
surrender in devastating defeat. Begin in 1939, on the eve of the German
invasion of Poland or 1940 as the Axis turn their eyes toward the Low Countries
and France. Launch Operation Barbarossa in 1941 in the East or start in the
summer of 1942 as the Germans aim to clear the Volga and capture Stalingrad and
key resources in the South. Take command in 1943 during the Kursk offensive or
prepare for the Allied invasion of Fortress Europa in 1944.
