From the publisher’s website:
NATO Air Commander is a gripping and challenging solitaire strategy game from first-time designer Brad Smith. A diverse mix of period-appropriate aircraft and nine different mission types make for a crunchy decision space. The tools at your disposal can be powerful but are limited in number: concentrate them on one or two missions and you can usually guarantee their success, but that lets the enemy march unopposed elsewhere. Try to do everything and you’ll be spread too thin, with each mission being more of a risk. Your ability to cope with the burdens of command will determine your success.
