Date published: 4/1/1978

Designed by: Eric Goldberg

Developed by: Eric Goldberg

Data: In-depth simulation covering the crucial battle for Maleme Airfield and all action in the Suda Bay area. Pits German paratroopers and mountain troops against the polygot Commonwealth garrison. Scenarios and a 60 turn campaign game.

Comments: This is a borderline addition, a mini-monster in the grand tactical style of TSS. This two map game boasts of a beautiful map and lots of counters, with plenty of action. But with 800 counters total, only 400 counters are for combat units. (The rest are counters for strength losses.) Uses the Highway to the Reich game system.
