The oil crisis
October 1973, the Yom Kippur War has just ended with thousands dead in Sinai and the Golan Heights. Israel had been attacked simultaneously by both Egypt and Syria, after almost a month of dramatic shock and one bloody fight after another: The IDF managed to push back the Arab armies but the unbeatable image Israel carted with its victory in the “6 Days War” is shattered.
Now, The Arab world marks its next target: Nixon’s America and the rest of Israel’s allies. They dared to supply Israel with tanks, artillery, and ammunition during the war and they will pay. OPEC uses a simple and effective “oil weapon” to strike the western world where it hurts.
Will you save the western economy and find a way to end the embargo? Or perhaps you will use this opportunity to lift the Arab world into the international forefront of the economic and political scene. Will the west continue to support Israel? Or will Arab pressure finally defeat the stubborn Jewish state?
Command your army and diplomats as a leader or make sure your company survives the storm as a CEO. Betrayals, assassinations, and sabotage are all fair game: much is at stake, maybe even the entire cold war. It’s up to you to change history and make sure your side comes on top in The oil crisis.
