" The best wargame ever made for the PC. A monumental achievement in Game Design. It is the Mount Everest, the Beethoven´s Ninth, and Moby Dick of PC Wargames, and it absolutly qualifies as a genuine work of art."

Computer Gaming World - 5 out of 5 stars, Editors Choice
" The best hex-based wargame ever made. Period."

- Bruce Geryk - Computer Gaming World - September 2003

"It is probably THE best hex strategy game out to date though, and indeed possibly one of the best single campaign one too. If you like true-to-life, historical battles or are an avid strategist there’s only one thing left to say… Why are you still here reading this review?… you should be on the way out to buy this game!!"
