Gathering Storm is a game that re-creates the politics, military research and mobilizations that led to the start of World War II. An entertaining and playable game in its own right, it also combines with A World at War to create a myriad of starting positions for that game.
This preview of Gathering Storm, by designer Bruce Harper, provides an excellent overview of the components, game play and strategy. This is interspersed with an illuminating view of the historical events, what motivated them, and how the game attempts to model the participants. This is worth the time of anyone interested in the prewar period from 1935 to 1939.
