Axis and Allies

It is 1941. Five major powers struggle for supremacy. The Axis has great momentum and is expanding its conquests in both Europe and Asia.

Show that you are a brilliant military strategist by planning your attacks, marshaling your forces into embattled territories, and resolving the conflicts. Victory goes to the side that conquers its opponents on the field of battle and liberates or occupies the greatest cities of the world. Change the course of history in a few short hours!
