Combat Mission : Beyond Overlord™

In case you are not already familiar with the game Combat Mission™

Combat Mission: Beyond Overlord™ is a simulation set on the western front from 1944 to 1945. Built for both Windows and Macintosh computers, it begins with the massive Allied assault in Normandy and takes you through the race across France and the devastating Battle of the Bulge to the end of the war in Europe. 

Combat Mission™ uses a hybrid real-time/turn-based game system, so the closest thing to compare it to is a cross between Close Combat and Steel Panthers, but with 3D graphics and much more. Individual units are squads, weapons teams, tanks, and heavy guns, and a player may command forces that are the size of a reinforced battalion.

Combat Mission™ is exclusively sold via the Internet. You can get this excellent wargame at the Battlefront Homepage. To go there, click on the picture above.
