DescriptionA turn-based strategy game set in World War I, using a similar engine and gameplay system to Battle Isle
Both players act simultaneously on a split screen. While one player can move his units, the other can attack and vice versa. The results of battles are shown in animated sequences.
Terrain affects the performance of units, and seasons affect the likely terrain. Different units are introduced as the game and war progress, with more air and sea battles later on.
There are 24 single-player maps in the game, which can be played from either the German or French perspective. In addition, there are 12 two-player maps.
The game also includes a lot of information about the period: after each mission, historical facts about two months of wartime are displayed.
There are no Amiga screenshots for this game.

Battle Isle PlatinumThis game is also contained in the Collection Battle Isle Platinum , though there it was announced neither on the package nor in any advertisement.
SeriesThis was vaguely intended to be the first in a series of Historyline games detailing different wars. The CU Amiga review states that the Roman, Medieval and Napoleonic eras were considered. What became of this idea is unknown.
