From the back of the package:
When war erupts over the lands of Ansalon, you don't just move characters... You move entire armies!
Welcome to the first AD&D computer wargame. Prepare for fierce battles and all out war when the forces of Whitestone clash against the evil Highlord Dragonarmies. The prize? Absolute rule over all Ansalon on the DRAGONLANCE game world of Krynn.
Choose sides against another human opponent, or command Whitestone against the computer.
Send forth your diplomats to forge treaties and gain the allies that will swell the numbers of your troops.
When words fail, armies of humans, draconians, ogres, dwarves, elves, dragons and other creatures may prove more persuasive.
See armies move across the lands of Ansalon using the strategic map, or zoom into the overview map to direct the war on a tighter scale. Select the tactical view to watch details of the battle unfold.
During the course of the game, players can send groups of hero characters on quests to discover magic items, Dragonlances, dragonorbs and Gnomish technology which may help to defeat the enemy.
Enough talk. Let the war begin!
