A classic hex and counter wargame, simulating the 1940 campaign in the West - the famous Fall of France, along with Belgium and Holland.
The game is big, with over 300 units, mostly divisions, representing Germany, Holland, Belgium, Britain, France, and even Poland. There are infantry, fortresses, tanks (Panzers), parachutists, and more.
There are 4 options (plus a random choice) for the French player (either human or AI):
1. Dyle plan - the default (and historical) option, with the best allied armies poised to march through Belgium to counter the expected German attack.
2. Escaut plan - same deployment as Dyle, only differs for the AI player, as this was a more cautious, limited advance into Belgium.
3. No B.E.F. - hypothetical scenario where Britain is neutral.
4. Reserves - the French 7th army was originally meant to be a strategic reserve, instead of the extreme left of the Allied line. This option puts it in reserve near Paris.
The German player has 5 options (plus the random one), again either human or AI:
1. Manstein plan - the default option is the famous historical sickle cut through the Ardennes.
2. Hadler plan - Original plan was a variant on the old Schlieffen plan only on a broad front in Belgium and Holland.
3. Belgium plan - This was a concentrated thrust through Belgium, which would have met the Dyle plan head on.
4. Compromise - Hitler proposed a compromise plan, which had a secondary thrust through the Ardennes, with the main effort in Belgium.
5. A Strasburg hypothetical plan puts Panzergruppe Kleist, backed up by 7th Army reinforced with 3 infantry corps attacking South of Strasburg through the Maginot line!

Good Military Board Game
A very playable implementation of an Avalon Hill or older SPI style board game. AI is a reasonably competent opponent. I've had no technical challenges (bugs, etc.) with this game. A little more information for the player (detailed post-battle and turn stats) would be helpful, particularly after the opposing player's turn.
Strategic and historical
Must buy for military history buffs. This game is huge and has tons of combinations of setups so you can play it over and over. There menu options are very basic and the graphics are low quality but I’ve never had any technical issues.
Definitely worth buying!
The free games were excellent but the scope and replayability for this one make it completely worth the purchase price. I'm a huge fan of all of the games from this developer and have bought them all.
