Battle Of Britain

Battle Of Britain, part of the Wargamers series from PSS, is designed to appeal to both the more experienced wargamer and the novice.

The optional arcade sequences should make the game more accessible for the beginner.

The Battle Of Britain took place between July and October 1940 when the German Luftwaffes attempted to defeat the RAF and pave the way for a German invasion of Britain.

Your mission is to control Fighter Command and deploy your aircraft against the German airforce. You must also struggle with the problems of flying time, ammunition, landing strips and the size of the attacking forces.

Complex and satisfying, Battle Of Britain builds into a very atmospheric game. The arcade sequence graphics - which include flying a Spitfire in air-to-air combat and firing anti-aircraft guns - are more than adequate.

The instruction booklet is comprehensive and the only grouse is that it does not contain any historical background to the Battle Of Britain.
