"It was one of the most lopsided scenarios I could pick. It was 1983 and the military government of Hudson Austin had only a token force of Grenadian troops and Cuban advisers facing down my incoming force of U.S. Marines, Rangers, SEAL teams and a follow-on Caribbean peacekeeping contingent — all backed by the U.S. Air Force.

Within a few turns, it was over. The Rangers seized Port Salines and rescued the trapped American students — an important scenario objective. My Rangers and Marines contained the demoralized Grenadian army in the central hills and then overran them. From my perspective, the invasion simply involved moving square boxes around on a map.

This is The Operational Art of War IV — or TOAW IV — a computer game released in November 2017 by developer TrickeySoft, and a follow-up to Norm Koger's 2006 cult predecessor. The series goes back to the 1990s…."

I loved TOAW. Will look for the new one thanks Tango. I hope this one still allows you to make maps.
