Target For Today is a solitaire game that recreates American's Daylight Strategic Bombing Campaign against Nazi Occupied Europe during the Second World War.

Considerable research, including review of many oral histories gathered from veterans who flew heavy bombers in the Daylight Strategic Bombing Campaign was done to make Target For Today function as closely as possible to reality. The game was designed to provide the player with the ultimate gaming experience depicting the same types of events and decision making processes experienced by the veterans who flew the real-life missions.

Now, you are in command of an individual bomber on an individual mission over Hitler’s Third Reich —flying either the B-17F or G Model Flying Fortress or the B24D, or J Model Liberator bomber. A series of individual missions are strung together in the campaign game to form the player's tour of duty. Just as it was in real life, the objective of the game for the player is to survive your tour of duty so you can rotate home.

The US Army Air Forces suffered one of the highest casualty rates of any branch of the military services including the US Marine Corps during World War II. The heavy bomber groups of the 8th Air Force flew a combined total of 10,631 strike missions over Europe during the period of this game. The 8th Air Force lost 4145 bombers on these missions. Surviving your tour of duty could be difficult!

    5/5
    Un jeu en mode solitaire exclusivement. Les règles semblent complexes, mais si on se tient à la séquence de jeu et on vérifie bien les modificateurs de chaque table (qui sont vraiment bien faits) ça devient fluide dès la 2eme mission. Faut pas se leurrer qd même: au niveau des prises de décision par le joueur, c'est pas énorme. Toutefois évoluer avec son équipage au fil du temps: ça c'est extra.
