Very good war game. There are a few scenarios if I remember correctly and most of them have the Warsaw Pact vs the NATO forces in Europe fighting. You can control either one. There are many things you can do apart from the usual movement of units. Like sending special forces in norway or Choosing special air attacks. Lots of great detail in this game. You could have info up to single tank or artillery piece for each unit. You could choose to attack with a combination of units on one hex if you wanted. There was a good supply line implemented. You could in theory manage to have some of your brigades manage to cut off enemy units and make them be in a very difficult situation. Definetely one of the best wargames of the cold war era ever. This game together with Conflict Europe made me think a lot of the whole cold war when I was a teenager. Great game if you are a wargamer. If you are not you might love it or hate it since there is a lot of info here. 5/5 stars.
