James Mathews, of the TOAD development team, added, “We’re happy to not only support customers who play a great game like TOAW III right out of the box, but to also encourage and support customers who like to tinker with their own scenarios and game files as well. If user-created scenarios and equipment files make the game more enjoyable and keep the community strong, we’re all for it.”

 

The Operational Art of War series is legendary in both its scope and flexibility. The innovative TOAW III system allows you to play and create any battle from the entire 20th century of warfare and up to the modern day.
