"The Schwerpunkt series of GMT games is aptly named: a focused, cohesive effort on a relatively contracted part of World War II. The first (and currently, only) game in this series, Von Manstein's Backhand Blow, contemplates admirably the dire situation facing the Wehrmacht in early 1943, with a beautiful map, colorful playing pieces, and an easy system of play."

The fighting, hard and bitter, was nevertheless moving United States forces toward the ultimate goal of conquering the Empire of Japan."

"Who would have thought that a humble mod with a small band of followers would eventually progress to be a retail game played by thousands of people? No, I'm not talking about the seemingly ubiquitous Counter-Strike. I'm talking about the fast paced, Half-Life powered, World War II FPS mod Day of Defeat."
