A new WW2 tactical card game playable by Java

First of all, I didn't realize that YOUR MOVE GAMES, the guys that make the excellent BATTLEGROUND: Fantasy Warfare had made a world war 2 era game. The game is called The Battle for Hill 218, and it looks to be a quick filler type thing, playable with cards, within 15 minutes or so. BGG Reference. Even cooler than that is that a fellow named Andrew Gross has made a Java version that can play solitaire OR hotseat on just about any platform. The Java version can be found at Andrew's home page.

Here's a screenshot (click for more detail):

Remember EAST FRONT TANK COMMANDER and LAST CRUSADE? It strikes me that both of those could be easily converted to similar applications.
