    Description:

    TalonSoft has unleashed the legendary Norm Koger to create the ULTIMATE wargame! After a 10 year relationship with SSI developing titles such as Age of Rifles, Tanks, and Red Lightening, Norm has joined TalonSoft to create the wargame of his dream, The Operational Art of War. In Volume I, you will have the ability to create virtually any battle of any war that occurred between 1939 and 1955. The game scale can range from individual companies of men (about 120) to whole Corps (40,000 men & equipment) and from 2.5 km per hex to 50 km per hex. This flexibility is second to none for an operational level game.

    Special Features:

    • Full blown map, unit and scenario editors enable you to create your own battlefield. Unmatched flexibility is an understatement for this editing system.

    • Hugh equipment database - hundreds of tanks, planes and equipment to choose from.

    • Stunning 16 bit high color graphics in both 2D and 3D modes.

    • First ever Event/Political editor - lets you create "trigger" events that will cause other historical or "what if" situations to occur, such as the surprise use of tactical nukes! The cusomization you always dreamed of without having to be a computer programmer! YOU CAN CHANGE HISTORY, LITERALLY!

    • Play modes include Human vs Computer, Human vs Human via hot seat, play by email and Internet play.

    • 15 major preset battles, each of which other companies sell as a stand alone game.
