Review at Gamers Hall.de
84% - For diehard fans anyway a must. Interestingly, I found the Vistula to Berlin scenario.
Many new troops. Or the Sudden Death Campaign. There each year, the victory conditions are checked.

Lost Battles expansion is an interesting little package that gives plenty of stuff for amateur historians and fans of Grigsby's war games.
