Strategy in WW2
22 January 2011 | by damakucSee all my reviews

If history were presented in the "Battlefield" series format, I would have undoubtedly like it much more...

The series manages to strike a very good balance of introducing the key impacts in major battles of WW2. It does not want to reduce the battle to one single trigger, instead it focuses on the prelude, people, weaponry and tactics/strategy.

The latter is a favorite part of mine, as this was usually the key ingredient missing in many other popular historic presentations. The series devotes a significant amount of time to this part, making much more sense of why did the great generals behave the way they did.

As I grew up in the "computer game" generation, this series made me remember of the endless number of strategy games I've played, and in particular, of the game "Civilization".

The graphics and music background are not high-tech, however, IMHO this only reduces any distractions and makes you enjoy this series even more.
