MOSCOW, Russia – January 31, 2008 – Leading Eastern and Central European publisher 1C Company today announced the development of its new World War II strategy game Men of War.

Each campaign has its own structured timeline bringing a different story of the war to life spanning across Russia, North Africa, Ukraine, Greece, Germany, Italy and the Pacific. The main Soviet campaign sees two student comrades, Smirnov and Kuznetzov, join the army and quickly become brothers in arms as they rise through the ranks and experience the rigors of war.
