Description Edit | History

SPI's monster game of the Battle of the Bulge. 4 maps.
This is a grand tactical simulation of the Battle of the Bulge. Recreate the decisive engagement that represented Hitler's last major effort to win the Second World War.
Not a simple game to learn, but once mastered a very enjoyable game.
