I'm sure Chris Crawford wrote about this game (and PSB and the copy protection methods used) in his "The Art of Computer Game Design" book - freely available from Chris Crawford's web site (use google)

Yes, I'm afraid this game is copy protected in a most devious way. God that sucks - I wasted dozens of hours in college playing this and it's still a great wargame...

Not tried this one, but "Patton Strikes Back" was definitely one of the greatest strategy games ever. This looks remarkably similar.

Chris Crawford was (is) a master of cunning at stopping game piracy. This sounds like something he would do if the game detected that it had been tampered with.

Unfortunately, I can't get this to run properly under any OS ver from 6 onward. Basically, from turn2 onwards your units start disappearing at random. Bizarre and unfortunate - this is still a great game.
