The race for control of Berlin is on
Hitler's Third Reich was clearly beaten in early December 1944 as Anglo-American and Soviet armies reached Germany's borders to the east and west. The only questions remaining were how long it would take to finish the job, and how many more would die in the process. Hitler gambled his last reserves in an offensive through the Ardennes, hoping to split the Anglo-Americans and force them to the negotiating table. It failed, and a month later the final Allied offensives began. The overwhelmed German army gave ground grudgingly and even launched local counteroffensives but could not stop the tide as the Allies picked up speed. Allied leaders strove to finish the war, all the while looking toward the shape of postwar Europe. The race was on for the final prize: Berlin.
Battle for Germany focuses on that race. One player commands the western Allies, the other the Soviets. Each commands the German units facing their opponent, motivating them to fight to the end. Play follows a move-fight sequence, interleaved between the eastern and western fronts. Both players must hurry to reach Berlin, but a careless player will see their spearheads destroyed by sudden German concentrations.
