A grand strategical game covering World War 2 in the Pacific and South East Asia areas. The player has to manage every aspect of the conflict: From building Task Forces, moving troops and planes, to managing production, it's all there (and much more). Different starting points to enter the war can be chosen. Either side can be played by a human player.
