Military History - Commander: Europe at War is a turn-based strategy game set during World War II. Players take command of either the Axis powers or the Allied forces, and make decisions relating to recruitment, reconnaissance and diplomacy.

This expansion was created by the community for the community and is completely free to anyone who has MILITARY HISTORYâ„¢ Commander - Europe at War! This expansion will be available for PC and Mac next Tuesday, May 31st.

This expansion has taken years to produce and thousands of man hours from a dedicated collection of people from artists to programmers, manual writers and layout experts. The end result takes this great game to a whole new level.
