    Series designer: David C. Isby
    Author of historical article: Richard Spence

    Serbia/Galicia: Austria-Hungary must decide how to allocate its forces and respond to progress or the lack of it on two fronts as it undertakes the offensives in Serbia and tries to withstand the onslaught of the Russian juggernaut in its own Galicia province.
    Designer: J.A. Nelson

    Von Hindenburg in Poland: Russia and Germany battle for the mineral-rich province of Silesia.

    Designer: James F. Dunnigan

    Caporetto, 1917: the Central Powers push the Italians back over 100 miles. (Dog of the series.)
