Description Edit | History

From the back of the box:

Dig in, soldier—for the explosive follow-up to Close Combat, PC Gamer's 1997 "Best War Game of the Year." Based on Operation Market Garden, Close Combat: A Bridge Too Far challenges you to take control of five strategic bridges in the most dramatic battle of World War II. From war-room strategy to gritty trench combat, battlefields come to life as you command Allied or Axis powers. It's a desperate fight—bridge after bridge—where every second counts.

Choose your battles, soldier—but watch your troops closely. Your best men might be war-weary, others may just be cowards or too green for heavy combat. And you better know how to command—these men won't obey suicidal orders.

Dominate the battlefield. Pound back tank attacks, foil enemy ambushes, and weather the hail of automatic weapon fire. Real-time action pushes your tactical skills to the limit on historically accurate battlefields.

Resource allocation lets you customize your forces. Determine which operations receive reinforcements and which ones must struggle with what's on hand. Everything hinges on your ability to get limited reserves to the right battlefield at the right time.

All damage and territory carry forward. Your success in the ground you capture affects your position in future battles.
