Sequel to Wages of War, Soldiers at War is a squad based tactical game based. Lead a squad of American soldiers in WW2, performing covert operations against the Nazis.

Similar to the first two X-Com games, Soldiers at War is a turn-based, isometric game that enables your soldiers to run and crawl over a decimated European landscape that includes tanks, trains, and ground airplanes.

For each mission, you will pick from the thirty-two men in your platoon, each skilled in a variety of abilities. The men gain experience and grow between missions and can also be wounded or killed. Their weapons include most of the popular pistols, rifles, and explosive devices of WWII and you can even scavenge enemy weapons if you prefer them.

The developers at Random Games got a lot of mileage out of their work on their first title, Wages of War. They tweaked the WoW design to make Soldiers at War. Later, they would update it yet again for their game Squad Leader.
