Best Strategy Game 2013 - Silver Award

On June 22, 1941, the largest land campaign in history began, as three German Army Groups advanced into the Soviet Union.  Operation Barbarossa was underway and the German war machine was now locked in a struggle which would change the course of World War II.

Germany At War: Soviet Dawn is a turn-based operational wargame, with a strong historical focus. The two major camapigns, one for each side, lead the player through all important stages of the conflict and sometimes beyond. You command either the German forces through a branching historical campaign covering the entire 1941 campaign as well as part of the 1942 campaign with dozens of scenarios stretching from the Soviet border all the way to Archangel and towards Astrakhan, the original military goals of Operation Barbarossa.
Or you pick up the Soviet banner to defend your homeland against the invaders until you can start to reconquer lost Russian soil and even have your revenge in 1944/45.
Units follow you through the campaigns, earning experience and historical upgrades while as you progress new equipment becomes available on a historical schedule.
Step into a wargame where your performance will rewrite history, through an addictive combination of compelling gameplay, realistic events and challenging battles.

Additional stand-alone scenarios cover more famous battles with historical orders of battle in which you use different formations and equipments to achieve the mission goals. Units and maps are represented at realistic scales and the combat, movement and terrain systems are all based on real capabilities.

Aimed at all levels, from those who have never played a wargame before to those who know the history of World War II in detail, this is an entertaining and challenging game of combined arms strategy.
