The game system has some unique qualities. Above all the open sequence of play within each players Operations Phase. The game system models the seven Battlefield Operating Systems (BOS) in some detail and this makes play of the game feel very different from other comparable games. During this Operations Phase you can perform Maneuver/Fire, Fire Support, Engineering, Intelligence, in any order you desire to support your plans. During the enemy player turn you have the opportunity to exercise the Air Defense OS, and during other times of the sequence of play you account for Command and Control and Combat Service Support. There is a lot here to digest and if you want to get closest to being involved in a military Command Post Exercise, this is it.

This game is going to give you a completely new appreciation for the struggles of the Gross Deutschland Division during the Citadelle offensive. The attacks timetable was disrupted early on and never got back on track. The division hit the Pena River, bounced back, slid to the right along the southern bank, and then north toward Oboyan. The sheer quantity of troops set against them is daunting to have to try and wear down. But this is the nature of the battle. And the game does a great job of presenting the situation as a real slugging match.
