Description from the packaging.

History is in the making and you are at the turning point.

Fight for your life! In Europe: September 1, 1939, you have reached a turning point and only you can determine how the future will unfold. Choose a character and a side. Will you lead Germany's mighty armed forces, or align yourself with the stalwart, though ill-prepared, Allied armies? You design the strategies, you direct the troop movements. Then you zoom in on the battlefields and assume tactical command. Will you out-smart your opponent, or will you fall into a trap?

It's as real as war. Every variable of military strategy is important, each tactical nuance decisive. As leader of the Germans, can you chance a war on two fronts, or should you eliminate one opponent before attacking the next? Can you cross the English Channel before the RAF has been defeated? As leader of the Allies, can you try to defend Europe, or retreat to England to build up your strength? Can you allow the Germans to roam freely across Europe? Where and when should you attack them?

Walk a mile in your enemy's shoes. What are the enemy's strengths and weaknesses? Does their commander have any vulnerabilities you might take advantage of? Each side must play within the historical realities of the war. Your motives are those of Hitler and Mussolini, and of Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin. Your forces and material are only as numerous and as effective as your side can produce. You can win this war only if you can uncover and exploit every possible advantage.

Intelligence wins wars.
Europe: September 1, 1939 is more than a battle of pure strategy and textbook tactics. Ultimately, superior knowledge and gut instinct will lead you to victory. Are you smart enough to take on the greatest leaders of the 20th century? Are you ready to take your place in the greatest conflict the world has ever known?
