Description from the packaging.

1944-1945 Armored combat in Western Europe.
The M4 Sherman and the M18 Hellcat. The Tigers of the Reich. These tanks rocked Europe from D-Day to the fall of Berlin. Inside one of these steel beasts, you'll feel the same gut-wrenching tension World War II tank commanders experienced.

This is real heavy metal!
Command your combined armed forces as they fight over the expanses of a World War II battlefield. Or, jump into any tank for a first person, close range firefight where the action is fast and deadly.

You're in charge!
Control a single platoon, a company or an entire battalion with complete operational command. Become part of legendary units like the American 4th, 7th or 10th Armored Divisions- or the German 11th, 166th or Panzer Lehr Divisions. You choose.

Hell of wheels!
Startling 3-D graphics and detailed in-tank controls bring these armored juggernauts to life. An advanced topographical system lets you experience every jarring shock as you smash across Western Europe's war-torn landscape. Follow your unit in historically accurate combat scenarios.

Special bonus CD!
The Across The Rhine Windows video is more than 40 minutes of archival film footage and maps that take you through the great armored battles following the D-Day invasion. Created by award-winning documentary producer Lou Reda, the video adds an interactive, multimedia presentation that punctuates the game's historic authenticity.

  • Complete operational command of a tank platoon, a company, or an entire battalion.
  • Choose which side you'll fight on and the tanks to fight in.
  • Pull-down menus and point-and-click functions make battle tactics easy.
  • Historically accurate World War II tank combat scenarios.

Primary technical consultant, Albin F. Irzyk, Brigadier General USA (Ret.); Commanding Officer 8th Tank Battalion, 4th Armored Division during World War II, part of General George S. Patton's 3rd Army.
