This Special Game Issue including the game: Storm Over Belfort, 1870-1871.
The war of 1870 was marked by major sieges such as those of Metz, Strasbourg and Paris. The one of Belfort, from November 3, 1870 to February 18, 1871, is one of the last episodes of the war and the garrison will be the last French army to lay down its arms. Storm over Belfort tries to show the difficult conditions of an ultimately dynamic siege where bitter fighting is fought in the snow and under the shells for more political than strategic gains.
