I came across this last week and a play through. I still have three of the games in storage. I liked the boxes. Those games played real well along with Clash of Steel

I remember playing them as well on my old DOS machine back in the day, the disks are most likely long gone. I have one shot left in my storage, I need to check.

I have those disks for dos, I’ll have to get some pictures, I still have ssg’s Rommel and MacArthurs war, might be 514, unbelievable how much work went into these games and the manuals. I sold all my stuff at one time but I kept a few items.

I have used that site. It appears to be good.

I think all of them are available for the emulators. I've played some of them from time to time, but they run a tad slow.

I dosboxed those a few years ago, downloads were safe and ran well. They were very good games for their time, but gave me a greater appreciation of modern mouse scrollable and zoomable maps.

Back in the day, those games simply blew me away. All I had was a MacII Si at work, and I'd come into the office on Saturday to play them. My wife thought I was working. Great memories of days when games would literally make your day.
