Description: In the late July of 1944 Soviet forces were getting closer to Warsaw. Polish capital was ready to rise and fight after five long years of brutal German occupation. However, the Germans used their armored divisions to slow down the Soviet advance. When the Polish Home Army started its uprising at the beginning of August, Stalin decided to stop any attacks and let the Germans take care of the Polish patriots and to destroy the Warsaw. The game covers the last days of the Soviet offensive along with the German counterattacks and gives players a chance to check if it was possible to help bleeding capital of Poland. It’s tempting to perform a swift attack on Warsaw, but are the Germans about to just sit and watch?
