Scapa Flow naval base held great significance to both Great Britain's Royal Navy and Germany's new Second World War Kriegsmarine. It was here that Kaiser Wilhelm's German High Seas Fleet of 74 battleships, cruisers and destroyers were interned immediately following the end of the First World War.

Hearts of Iron IV is the latest iteration of Paradox Interactive’s successful World War 2 grand strategy title. However, I have to confess that the last version was, for me, a failure as I just couldn’t get into it at all.
