World War III has begun!
After weeks of steadily increasing tension between NATO (Britain, the United States, West Germany, and their allies) and the Warsaw Pact (the Soviet Union, East Germany, and their allies), the forces of the Warsaw Pact launched a surprise attack all along the border between East and West Germany at 4 am this morning.
Sign up as a British, US, or West German player to defend Europe from the Communist scourge or as a Warsaw Pact player to liberate the workers of Europe from their capitalist enslavement!
Download the Campaign Introduction to read about the events leading to war and the official history of the opening days of the war, then go play some games of Team Yankee and write up your battle reports to change history to help your side win World War III. Visit your nation’s briefing room to strategise and plan your ultimate victory.
The campaign starts on Saturday 12 August 2017 and runs until Friday 22 September 2017.
That gives you six weeks to fight battles and make history. Over that time, we will be advancing the campaign every few days, moving the battlefields forwards (or backwards) to reflect the progress of the Warsaw Pact forces (or their lack of it). The more games you play and the more you participate in the on-line planning and discussions, the greater impact you will have on what happens as the campaign runs.
At the end of the campaign, the outcome will influence the background of Team Yankee in future books.
