It's not always easy to present a historical event as a story game, but the author has pulled it off. My only regret is that as the reader I wasn't immersed in the story. I would have liked to have a drop of sweat make its way down my brow as my decisions decided the fates of millions of lives. Instead it was a very impersonal read, but still good fun, edutainment indeed. I appreciate the bibliography you included.

This is CIA propaganda. If you do not go and start a war they claim you are being weak, but what else can be expected from capitalist society?

This is not the funniest game. I would rather play a more fun game.
