Those who served in Vietnam fought in a war without front lines, one where action came quickly and unexpectedly. They fought in rice paddies, in the air, in the cities, and along the rivers of Vietnam. They came from myriad backgrounds and nationalities, all wanting to serve their country. Their combat experiences writ large a story; a story they would take with them, and that would forever represent their Tour of Duty.

Tour of Duty is the second game in the Squad Battles Series and continues from the original game Squad Battles Vietnam. In addition to over 40 scenarios, Tour of Duty has a Campaign Game, the first in the Squad Battles series to do so, which enables the player to assume the role of a leader and fight multiple battles over the course of a year in Vietnam. There are 5 campaigns, including American Army, Marine, Air Cavalry, Army Riverine, and Australian forces.

Although it uses a common game engine, Tour of Duty is a complete game and independent of Squad Battles Vietnam. Either can be installed and played without the other. However, PBEM and network games require that both players have the same game being played, Vietnam or Tour of Duty, and scenario and battles are not interchangeable between the games.

Tour of Duty contains multiple enhancements to the Squad Battles game engine including Caves and Tunnels, Smoke and Illumination, and several enhancements and new features not found in the original Squad Battles Vietnam.

Tour of Duty includes American Army, American Marine, South Vietnamese, South Korean, Australian, North Vietnamese, and Viet Cong forces and equipment. Scenarios cover a wide variety of situations many of which include air and armored cavalry.
