Combat Mission is an advanced and intelligent computer war game, depicting platoon to battalion level combat in World War 2. It is not a 'shoot em up' game or 'first person shooter', but a tactical game where you issue commands to the units under your control. Morale plays a key role in the game, and it will prove impossible for green troops to storm a MG position unsupported, for example! The game also features an advanced scenario generator, enabling you to develop a whole host of historical and fictional combat scenarios. Personally I think it gives the layman a good opportunity to come to terms with various aspects of command and control on a battlefield, and from a fun point of view a good way into getting a wider perspective on WW2 battles.
currently two versions available; one dealing with the campaign in North West
Europe 1944-45 - Combat Mission Beyond Overlord (CMBO)
- and another dealing with the Eastern Front 1941-45 - Combat
Mission Barbarossa to Berlin (CMBB). A new version entitled Combat
Mission Africa Korps (CMAK) has just (December 2003) been released, and deals
with the fighting in North Africa, Sicily and Italy.
