The War against Germany and Japan, 1939-45
Global War is SPI's simulation of the most terrible war in human history - the Second World War. The simulation encompasses the entire world and all the areas of warfare - on and under the seas, in the air, on land, and in the factory.
Economic warfare plays a vital role in Global War. The Axis submarines attempt to put a stanglehold on England, isolating it from the rest of the Commonwealth and America. German surface raiders sortie into the North Atlantic in an attempt to cut American lend-lease en route to Russia. The industries must be tooled-up before production. It is impossible to suddenly switch from producing submarines to producing tanks. Players must decide early in the game what type of war they are going to conduct. A wrong guess at this stage could mean the difference between victory and defeat. And surmising the nature of enemy production is just as important.
