Not immediately, no - but we are working on an AAR and some designer's notes to help explain the game before it goes on sale.

Full marks to Matrix for not being afraid to market 'Introductory level' games such as Op Barbarossa.
I've been wargaming for 30 years and have always felt the market in general is top-heavy with over-complicated titles where you feel like you're fighting the thick rulebooks as well as the enemy.
I recently reviewed several of Matrixs's less-complex titles at my Few Good Men club and hope to review Op Barbarossa too when it's released- ... y.php?f=87
