Review on The Wargamer
The word definitive should not be used lightly but, at this point, this product is the definitive game for the Eastern Front.

Review at Historia Games
8.0/10 - War in the East is a great game, a great richness and depth rarely seen in a wargame, without falling into the unit's micro-management. However, it reserve for a community of players who made ​​the effort to read the manual. But once we crossed the line, this game is easier to master than it looks. Simulate the eastern front on this scale, with more detail and realism is, I think, become impossible. The future will tell me if I'm wrong...
