This began with SPI and an effort to use more fog of war than the Panzer Gruppe Guderian system was offering.
Based on the Wacht Am Rhein system, the thinking evolved into Operation Typhoon, our founding mother/father or whathaveyou and stemed into what is now known as the Victory in the West series that includes Pattons Third Army, Operation Grenade and Sicily: The Race for Messina.
I put the system through a filter and produced Iron Tide: Panzers in the Ardennes, after more than ten years of tinkering and delays in production. It lingered on the top ten at BoardGameGeek.com for over 3 years, just to show you that the popularity for the system and its offshoots still exists.
After many years of non-production, more and more offshoots of the original have come down the belt including the fabulous The Killing Ground along with its expansion Overlord, to give the system a complete D-Day simulation.
Numerous reprints by Command Japan, additional award winning games like Red Star Rising and now, on the horizon, another set of offshoot games is slated to appear if the preorder numbers are met.
Don't look for this to go off your radar real soon. I feel that the innovation is not complete in simulating within this system and its relatives. The best part is that it just keeps on coming.

I might add that Salerno will be published in the new World at War magazine w/game as issue #11, and will be VitW series #4 in the set by Decision Games

I'll begin by welcoming new members to chime in on the mother of the series, SPI Operation Typhoon, the existing series volumes I Operation Grenade, II Pattons Third Army, and III Sicily: The Race for Messina, and the several and growing family of offshoots from the tree. Iron Tide: Panzers in the Ardennes, The Killing Ground and Overlord expansion, and Red Star Rising are additions after the 20 year lapse in designs on the series.
