The Operational Art Of War III (TOAW III) is fully compatible with Windows operating systems up to and including Windows XP and includes improved memory management for better performance and stability under all operating systems.  TOAW III includes improved combat modeling, an improved computer opponent and a host of new options for players and designers. 

 

Over 130 of the best scenario designs of the last five years are included in The Operational Art Of War III, along with more than 70 classic TOAW scenarios from the original series.  Spanning the years from World War I to the post 9/11 Middle East, these scenarios show how flexible and powerful The Operational Art Of War III truly is.

 

The event limit in scenarios has been doubled, scenario and era-specific graphics, sounds and music are supported and additional supply and fog of war options are available.  French and German language support has been added along with a rewritten and updated PDF manual and help file with revised and corrected data to bring players up to date with the latest changes.  The Operational Art of War III looks, sounds and performs better than any previous release in the series.

 

The Operational Art of War III sets a new benchmark in operational wargaming.  Step up to the challenge – Master the Art of War!
