Middle East '67



Overview

The history of the Middle East is as old as time itself. This small area has seen conflict throughout recorded time. In the mid 1990's, this conflict took on a new intensity, one brought on by the modern instruments of war. While this games title is Middle East '67 it contains a number of scenarios from the war in '56 and the Yom Kippur War of 1973. In the mid 1900's, the Middle East conflict took the world from post WWII Weapons up to more modern instruments of war. The tank and guided missile now ranged over the deserts of the Sinai, the heights of the Golan, and the depths of the Dead Sea. As the opposing forces fight for their land and their people, how will these conflicts be resolved?
