Description from the packaging.

A World War II strategy game by Roger Damon.

You are Battalion Commander of an armored task force. Two rivers and fifteen kilometers away, your primary objective lies waiting. Your orders are clear- take the city and hold it.

Between you and your objective, nature and a cunning enemy have conspired to provide a series of obstacles you must overcome to reach your goal.

Should you seize the city on schedule and hold it against enemy counterattacks, your victory will provide a decisive breakthrough in the war. Should you fail, the entire front may collapse.

Win, lose or draw, Operation Whirlwind, with its realistic battle map, sound effects, and on-screen status reports, will put you on the edge of your seat for game after game.
