Battle of the Bulge is a turn based strategy game set on the Western Front during the Second World War.The historical battle took place in December 1944 in Ardennes, Belgium, where American forces fought against a large German offensive. It was the largest land battle of World War II in which the United States directly participated.
In the game, you are in control of the US armed forces and command American infantry, airborne and armoured divisions. Your first task is to survive the initial German onslaught, known as the Ardennes Offensive, while keeping your divisions in fighting order. After regrouping, you must contain the German attack and prevent the enemy from reaching Brussels, as this would allow them a route to the strategic port city of Antwerp. Once you have stopped the enemy offensive, push back the German units and destroy as many as possible.
