An operational/strategic simulation of the
bomber offensive over Germany (1943-1945)
on a daily basis. Scenarios range from one
month to two years, and playing time is almost
that long. With German production and
industrial devastation the key, it remains a fascinating
product. Based upon its commercial
success, it would appear that its fans are
limited to this reviewer and the designer.
In the final analysis, Europe Ablaze and USAAF
are complimentary designs. Because of the slightly
different focal points and features covered, they could both be owned and played without feeling
that you have just bought "two of a kind". If this
was that heavyweight fight that I mentioned earlier,
it would go fifteen tough rounds and come out a
USAAF is a bit more confined in its treatment,
but it covers well what it sets out to do. As a study
of the collapse of Germany's industrial capacity
under the weight of American bombs, it is unsurpassed.
