1944: Across The Rhine
1944 Across the Rhine is a tactical re-creation of armoured warfare in Western
Europe during World War II. Play begins in July 1944, after the Normandy
landings in France, and continues until the end of the war in 1945. The two main
antagonists in this simulation are the massive United States Army and the battle
hardened German Wehrmacht. Although the scale of this simulation accounts for
hundreds of formations, controlling them has been reduced to a very manageable,
very tactical, very personal level. You are eventually able to control
formations of up to battalion size, but combat is resolved on a platoon level.
You fight battles in real time, although, time compression is used to advance
the campaign during periods of relative inactivity.
