an old post i know, but for anyone who wants to play any old dos game,or any tbh, i can help you you want the info just ask.
for the thread starter HitMan52, the answer is a dosbox program, i use dosbox game launcher v0.77 which is a standard dos box program with a nice gui, front end, easy to setup and it's free, nearly all games of that age have been released as abandonware so can be got for free, some great titles to play if you like.
i own a i7 4960X with 16gb of ram, 2x256gb solid state drives with 4 tb of backup on WD raptors running windows 8.1 pro 64bit....
the v for victory series had 4 games, i own the lot,
V for Victory: D-Day Utah Beach (1991)
V for Victory: Gold Juno Sword (1992)
V for Victory: Market Garden (1993)
V for Victory: Velikiye Luki (1993)
or from the same makers, also owned,
World at War: Operation Crusader (1994)
plus many many others, never beat market garden tbh, a great game and challenge for it's day and for me it was the best in the series, but then again i do like that battle, played it to death on most formats over many years.
Airborne Assault: Red Devils Over Arnhem was good, but if you can find Arnhem is a first entry in R. T. Smith's World War II trilogy, including Desert Rats and Vulcan it's well worth the search and time.
for the time the games are very good, not as good looking as todays which are far larger in size and budget, as many only had a few working on them, but i try and buy as many as i can find as i play and collect all wargames, far too many boxes in the loft now days :)
have fun, and keep playing (wargames and sims forever)
