You are looking at computer game Close Combat.

Close Combat is the first game in a popular series of WW2 strategy/ war games. Microsoft's Close Combat series bases its power more on a strategy, than on real-time battling. You're placed as the battlefield commander as you command your troops in Normandy. Choose either to play as Axis or an Allies.

In Close Combat, a simulation focused on the events in Normandy that occurred between June 6 and July 18, 1944, the player can choose to play as either the Allied or German forces. Territory covered within the game ranges from Omaha Beach, the target of the American 29th Infantry Division assault on D-Day, to Saint-Lô, some 20 miles from the coast.

The game features historically accurate weapons and terrain as well as gameplay in which psychological combat exigencies are replicated. The campaign mode contains six major operations including Omaha Beach, crossing the river Aure near Trévièr, the infamous hedgerow obstacles, Purple Heart Draw, Hill 192 and finally Saint-Lô itself. Most of the game is played from a top-down perspective and the interface is mouse driven point-and-click.

Close Combat includes nine main weapons for both sides ranging from pistols to tank killers. Options for difficulty settings, a two-player game, basic training (Boot Camp), single battle scenarios, a sequential campaign mode and replay (battles previously fought and recorded) round out the player choices.
