Developed by SSI, Allied General is a turn-based strategy game originally released for the PC. Your objective is to take control of either the Allied or Axis powers and engage in strategic warfare across the varying terrain of the European countryside.
There are over 35 different scenarios based on actual events that took place during World War II, each an attempt to stop Germany from world domination. You play as an American, British or Soviet general who must lead your troops to victory. As you progress through the campaigns, your individual units become more powerful and experienced.
It is up to you to carry out the battles, but be warned, success only comes to those who carefully plan ahead. Players interested in history may use actual strategies documented for the war, while others may want to experiment with their methods to victory. The choice is entirely up to you — but succeed by any means necessary. For variety, a few alternate history campaigns have also been included; simply missions that attempt to document what would have happened if so-and-so had done this, or if a certain campaign had never taken place. ~ Joshua Romero, All Game Guide
