The company's blurb, in contrast to normal hyperbole, is an accurate description of these games: "The V for Victory series sets a new standard for computer wargames. It is the most complete, accurate, and realistic simulation of large scale WWII ground combat ever produced. Yet V for Victory is remarkably easy to learn and play." Great AI, interface, and plenty of units and historical variants make these Atomic Games' breakthrough titles and designer Keith Zabalaoui a household name in wargaming. Must-haves for every wargamer's arsenal.

Atomic's description of Utah Beach, first game in this series:

The enemy lurks in the swampy marshes and the claustrophobic hedgerows of Normandy – but where? Where will he strike? Where is he weak? Can you turn his mistakes to your advantage? V for Victory: Utah Beach thrusts you into the role of a military strategist during the Normandy invasion of WWII. As the American commander, you must overcome strong German resistance to occupy the Cotentin peninsula and the vital port facilities at Cherborg. Or, as the German Commander, you must defend Cherborg and drive the Americans back to the sea.
