About Germany at War: Barbarossa 1941

On June 22, 1941, the largest land campaign in history began, as three German Army Groups advanced into the Soviet Union.  Operation Barbarossa was underway and the German war machine was now locked in a struggle which would change the course of World War II.

Germany At War: Operation Barbarossa 1941 is an elegant turn-based design, inspired by classics such as Panzer General, but with more of a historical focus.  You command the German forces through a branching historical campaign covering the entire 1941 campaign as well as part of the 1942 campaign.  Dozens of scenarios stretch from the Soviet border all the way to Archangel and towards Astrakhan, the original military goals of Operation Barbarossa.  Step into a wargame where your performance will rewrite history, through an addictive combination of compelling gameplay, realistic events and challenging battles. 

Additional stand-alone scenarios cover other famous battles and are ideal for head to head play through the integrated PBEM++ system.  Your forces follow you through the campaign, earning historical upgrades as you progress and new equipment becomes available on a historical schedule.  Units and maps are represented at realistic scales and the combat, movement and terrain systems are all based on real capabilities.

Aimed at all levels, from those who have never played a wargame before to those who know the history of World War II in detail, this is an entertaining and challenging game of combined arms strategy.
