Magazyn S&T plus gra North Cape – bitwy o konwoje arktyczne w latach 1942-45
Strategy & Tactics magazine is the longest running military history magazine (since 1967). Readers get much more than narrative stories of history, they get an analytical approach focusing on the “how” and “why” of battles and campaigns. All feature articles are lavishly illustrated with maps and pictures showing the action, along with sidebars on personalities, equipment and organization, and unique and unusual events.
North Cape: Convoy Battles in the Arctic, 1942-45 is a simulation of the convoy battles fought in the Barents Sea during World War Two.

For the Allied player, the objective of the game is to bring the greatest number of merchant ships to the Soviet Union.
