The Barbarossa Campaign, by designer Gary W. Graber, recalls the titanic struggle on the Russian Front of World War 2 as no other wargame has presented it before – as a story filled with drama and pathos, using a novel new solitaire gaming system that puts you, the Axis Player, in command, facing momentous events – sometimes history's master, and at other times its pawn.
Featuring a dynamic game engine – where you must attempt to collapse the Soviet Union against all odds, where the cunning strategies you devise while directing your panzer thrusts eastward or offering fanatical resistance as the Red Army pushes relentlessly back – you will bask in a fresh, new retelling of this epic story each time the game is played.
Plumb the possibilities offered in The Barbarossa Campaign where myriad historical "what-ifs?" are constantly explored and where you will be swept away by the ebb and flow of vast battles that can be swiftly mastered after encountering rules of only moderate difficulty. It is time to revel in your hobby again with this fast-moving, innovative Russian Front wargame built for fun and enjoy the "story" in history afresh every time you play it.
