"An excellent strategy game to play in coop with a friend - challenging missions with tons of detail and explosions. Single player is also fun."

In the Battle of the Bocage in 1944, after destroying countless Allied tanks, German tank ace Michael Wittmann stepped out of his disabled Tiger tank, picked up a .50 cal machine gun from a destroyed Matilda tank and single-handedly mowed down the whole 4th armored division.

Top notch history lesson.

This is a great game from my childhood, I used to enjoy the explosions even if the computer I used was extremely laggy. Its an amazing game and I really recommend it, I advise looking for a mission playthrough on youtube first just incase you are not into thesse types of games but this is a real classic. Enjoy your many hours of fun :)
