“Aaseng makes it fun to practice making such far-reaching decisions without having to face real losses of life.”
Kirkus Reviews

Seven twentieth-century battles are featured, including Germany’s Schlieffen Plan to invade France at the onset of World War I, Hitler’s decision to attack Russia in 1941, the Battle of Midway and D-day in World War II, the Inchon Invasion in the Korean War, the North Vietnamese Tet Offensive, and Operation Desert Storm.
