The setting is the Second World War, and nations such as North Africa, Italy and the Ardennes are all under threat by enemy bases and troops. Major Joe Sheridan, your appointed American officer, has to create his own strategic plans, sabotage the enemies and essentially pull the wool over their eyes. Yes. That's right. The main goal of R.U.S.E. is trickery, and that is your primary goal as you help the Allies achieve the victory."
