MicroProse Command Series games
Group DescriptionThe Command Series of games were strategic maneuver games where players would manage assets, move military forces, and try to out maneuver the enemy. The graphics looked like large military maps with units described by the appropriate military symbols.
This series of games came out of discussion between Sid Meier and Wild Bill Stealey after an Air National Guard weekend where 28 Army Officers were observed moving little metal warriors around a large table model of defense of the Fulda Gap, a cold war scenario for the US Army.
NATO Commander was used by the Army Command and Staff College at Ft Leavenworth, Kansas for discussion and learning about defending the Fulda Gap for mid level Army Officers.
