O.M.G. Could it really be. Could Matrix/Slitherine product selection once more include a WW2 WEGO system based game? It's only been 28 years since Atomics' V4V series came out for Microsoft's DOS OS. And 25 years since the follow up World at War series that included the Crusader campaign came out. I for one look forward to this title and hope the programming mistakes of the past are not repeated in this release, but rather serve to build and improve on those great titles that for whatever reason have never been re-booted.

I had the same reaction. It almost sounds to good to believe. I still have all of the Atomic/AH titles but they are very difficult to play on a new OS. Those old titles are still the apex of operational wargaming design in my opinion and DW looks very similar but with a broader focus and a strong editor. On the Matrix forums the Dev said he loved the old Operation Crusader and Stalingrad games so I assume they will have influenced his design somewhat. An easy day one purchase for me. I have wasted what life and relative youth I have left waiting for this day! :D
