For five years the armies of the world have fought back and forth across Europe. Three years ago the missiles started flying. Most countries were hit hard in the nuclear exchange, but no one had a decisive advantage, and the war went on. Tanks began breaking down, and the supply of spare parts gradually dwindled to zero. The sophisticated artillery weapons have shot off all of their ammo and no one is capable of producing any more. Divisions which have started with 20,000 men are lucky to put 2,000 in the field.
But the war goes on.
You are part of the remnants of the leading division of NATO’s last drive into central Poland. There isn’t much in the way of an organized military force left on either side. Local warlords, militia and murderous bands of marauding deserters rule the countryside. Your division has been overrun. Your group is hundreds of kilometers from the nearest friendlies.
The last message from Division HQ read: GOOD LUCK. YOU’RE ON YOUR OWN.
Now what do you do?
I had this game and a number of supplements back in the 80s, though we never got to play it much. My recollection is that the hardware side of things (weapons, vehicles, gear) was pretty good.
