Hitler's War for Windows

Welcome to Hitler's war for Windows. This is an attempt to create a PC version of the classic Metagaming/Avalon Hill Boardgame Hitler's War. This mini masterpiece allows players to recreate World War Two in Europe. Players choose the Axis, Soviets or Allies in different scenarios of increasing complexity.

Operation Barbarossa is the first scenario covering the Axis attack on the U.S.S.R. This scenario serves as an introduction to the game covering movement, combat and production.

The Fall Of Germany Scenario adds the Allies and rules for Sea Movement, Amphibious Invasions and Forts.

The two Campaign games cover the entire war from 1939 and add the rest of the rules chiefly Research, Nationality and special units such as Tactical Air and Paratroops.

Campaign game 3 covers optional rules written by Jay Richardson adding more flavour particularly to the national morale rules.

The Windows version of the game has hot seat and network play for each of these scenarios. This means 2 or 3 friends can battle it out on the same computer or over a LAN or the internet. There is no AI player or EMail support at present. 

Furthermore, the following optional rules are currently supported: leaders, home forces for minor countries, naval rules and ships and carriers.
