It seems forever ago now, but the Cold War was one of the longest, most influential quasi-conflicts in world history. From the mid-60s to the early 90s, people in Europe, Asia, and North America woke up every day not knowing if the next would be the day the nukes fell. It was a tense time period that is often fodder for a lot of fiction, especially spy stuff. That being said, for a time period where there wasn't that much all-out fighting between global powers, there are a lot of war games about that very thing. Armored Brigade adds to the pile of games that ask "what if the Cold War heated up?"
