Tip: War isn't fair

Mud and Blood 2 (flash) from MudandBlood.net, a profoundly unfair sandbox war game based loosely on Operation Lüttich (aka Mortain counter-offensive). You play the Allies and you will lose, screaming.

If you want to last a little longer, the wiki can help.

Is it possible to mute the audio? Or is that part of the frustration?

You can mute the audio by pushing the gears button the left side of the screen.

Tip: Hack the game, exploit the weaknesses, and win.

I've been re-listening to Countdown to Armageddon. This goes well with that.

"You play the Allies and you will lose, screaming."

Um, historically the Allies won. The German attack got chewed up from the air. Eventually their entire 7th army was encircled and eliminated.

There's German air support in this game? Historically allied air dominance was so complete that, despite throwing in their reserves, German planes frequently fell under attack as they were trying to take off.

The American way of war in WWII was the triumph of logistics over tactics, proof that near-unlimited quantities of high explosives can compensate for deficiencies in generalship.

Or alternately, proving the old saw that "amateurs think about tactics, professionals think about logistics".

Well, see if you can do the same, chief.

Kinda feels like Company of Heroes with a bad UI?

Finally got to 100 waves. Soiled self at some point. Unsure if it was game-related.
