    Decision in the Desert

    0300 hrs. July 1, 1942. North Africa. The Battle of El Alamein begins. What will the outcome be with you in command?

    Decision in the Desert is an absorbing, challenging simulation of World War II's North Africa campaign. Extensive research ensures historical accuracy as five of the most important battles are recreated.

    Exciting, non-stop action takes place in accelerated real-time. You must make decision after decision to deploy tanks, artillery, air cover and combat divisions.

    Choose to lead the armies of either side, or challenge an opponent to compete head-to-head against you.

    Although sophisticated, this simulation is easy to use. Strategy hints and in-depth historical backgrounds are included. But, success in the Desert demands careful strategic thinking and planning. Put your leadership qualities and analytical abilities to the test.

    Are you ready to take your place among history's greatest commanders?
