Operation East Wind – NATO Attendees Information

Germany divided

Operation East Wind is set in the Berlin District of a still divided Germany sometime between 1985 and 1995. As a NATO soldier coming into this environment you would find yourself as part of an elite brigade surrounded on every side by the full might of the Warsaw Pact. If the Cold War went hot, your job is to hold out as long as you can and make the enemy pay for every brick, stick and curb in blood. It was common knowledge that there was to be no such thing as a victory for the Berlin garrison. There would be only blood and pain.

We appreciate your interest in attending on behalf of the NATO forces, and defending democracy for the free peoples of Germany. Before committing to attend, be sure to complete these tasks:
