    Talonsoft's Eastern Front

    A groundbreaking new campaign series from the masters of the strategy game.

    World War II – The Eastern Front

    Unleash the power of the mighty Wehrmacht and drive deep into the heart of Mother Russia. Alternatively, defend the motherland against the German invaders. The choice is yours in this, the next generation of computer war gaming and the fist of Talonsoft’s groundbreaking new campaign series, Talonsoft's Eastern Front.

    Talonsoft's Eastern Front puts you in the middle of the greatest struggle of the struggle of the 20th Century. This platoon-level game of tactical combat in Russia, 1941 – 1945, starts you out as a company commander and if you’ve earned it – a promotion to higher ranks as the war goes on. Receive replacements and equipment upgrades while trying to win scenarios and turn your troops into battle- hardened veterans.

    In addition to the campaign game, play one of the many preset scenarios such as the famous battles of Kursk and Stalingrad – or let the computer create a battle for you or design your own with the fully flexible mission and map editor.

    Talonsoft’s track record and hard-core fan base from the success of the award- winning Battleground series will easily be repeated and built upon with the enhanced Campaign series.

Talonsoft's East Front website:
    The time is approaching fast. Soon "Operation Barbarossa" will begin. You sit on the front lines, wondering when the order will be given to destroy the Red Army and take Russia. However, the Soviets are not ready to just let you have their heartland. Mother Russia survived the attack of Napoleon and the German invaders will suffer the same fate.

    Clash the Russian T-34's against the German armor at Kursk. Drive into Stalingrad and claim the factories for Germany. It's all there for you to command from the start of the battle in 1941 to the streets of Berlin in 1945.

    Unleash the awesome power of the mighty Wehrmacht and meneuver deep into the heartland of the Soviet Union, or defend Mother Russia against the German invaders and march towards the streets of Berlin. The next generation of wargaming is here - are you ready for the challenge?
