Hopefully this means some of his other things (including Pavlov's House!) will be on the way eventually!

I also noticed that this is called part of the "DVG" franchise. It would sure be nice to see proper PC adaptations of DVG's stable of games...  :smitten: :dreamer:

Oh, yeah, I wasn't dreaming after all! -- I don't know why I didn't find that when I searched for it, though!  :notworthy:

It's really a fascinating story about the battle.  First time I'd ever heard of it was just reading about it on Tim Stone's new site (in the context of the game), and then googling it a bit.

Apparently, there is a movie in pre-production now about it, based on Stephen Harding's book:  The Last Battle: When U.S. and German Soldiers Joined Forces in the Waning Hours of World War II in Europe  (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15843097-the-last-battle#:~:text=Stephen%20Harding%27s%20The%20Last%20Battle%20chronicles%20an%20obscure,a%20medieval%20Austrian%20castle%20by%20fanatical%20Waffen-SS%20Nazis)

"Lions Led by Donkeys," podcast covered this event in an entertaining way - it's certainly something I never knew about.
