Achtung! Cthulhu Skirmish: the greatest battles of the Secret War!
The world is in flames as World War Two slowly devours the globe. Fuelled by unspeakable pacts with forbidden powers, the Nazi Cult of the Black Sun uses dark sorcery and summons foul abominations to rule the battlefields of men, inspiring fear, terror and conquering all before it.
The Allies respond with their own eldritch forces Section M and Majestic - top secret British and American intelligence organisations tasked with opposing the Black Sun - as a brutal Secret War within the main conflict develops, with both sides determined to fight to the bitter end.
Out on the front line, courageous Allied heroes clash with fiendish Nazi villains and both sides use every means at their disposal: conventional troops, artillery and armour, as well as forbidden weapons, esoteric sorcery and powerful Mythos allies in the struggle to prevail.
As the conflict accelerates into dark and terrifying new phase, just one question remains: can you take command and rule the battlefield in Achtung! Cthulhu Skirmish?
