I played this game (german version: "History Line 1914-18", but it is the same game) months... Several times I played it with my friend. A sheet of paper was hung on the monitor, so that everyone could see only his units / movement / attacks and it went off. I never forget a game: after 15 hours non stop, gave the friend up, although he could still fight over 8 hours, ... he would lost nevertheless and he knew it. ;)

I bought this in '93 when it came out and it gave me MONTHS of fun. It's also quite educational with the end of map scrolling history text. I started playing it again about 10 years ago at Christmas and have completed all the maps at least once a year since. It's terribly addictive, trying to complete them as perfectly as possible. There are some good walkthrough sites now (if you google them) that suggest alternative strategies. The replay value of this game is almost infinite and I have lost count of the amount of times I've replayed it. For those not comfortable with DOSBOX, you can buy a packaged Win7 version for a small fee from which comes with all the original Battle Isle games as well.
