From the game manual:
TYPHOON OF STEEL is a tactical level simulation of small unit actions during World War II. You and your opponent command various units that represent the forces of the major powers of WWII. Each unit is an individual vehicle or a squad of men. At the beginning of each battle you are given a mission to accomplish. You then have a certain number of game turns in which to accomplish your mission.
Typical of most SSI wargames of the 1980s and 1990s, TYPHOON OF STEEL includes a colorful game box and a detailed game manual, with concise explanations of all facets of the game.
Included is a separate manual containing detailed Tables of Equipment for the four major powers modeled, America, Britain, Germany and Japan.
