The hard fought and highly costly U-boat submarine war in the Atlantic began within hours of Germany's invasion of Poland on 1 September 1939 and continued right up to the final German surrender to the Allies in May 1945.

To give you an idea of the fervent intensity of the fighting, 40,000 Germans served in U-boats in WWII. 30,000 never returned. In spite of this, U-Boats were without a doubt the most cost effective weapon in Germany's naval arsenal in their battle against the Allies during the war.

Western Civilization Software’s Forge of Freedom is the best grand strategy game of the American Civil War, delving into all aspects of nations at war. However, the tactical mode is extremely abstract. The developer seeks to remedy this with a tactical game, Brother against Brother –The Drawing of the Sword.
