Barbarossa is another of Ark Royal Games wartime simulation games, based on World War II (in this case, the war in Russia). One of the later titles for the Coco 1/2, this time they went to full PMODE 4 graphics and color (instead or the low resolution or text only type displays that they had in their earlier efforts). This one also had a save/resume game feature, and the maps were actually larger than single screen (one screenshot above shows it scrolled somewhat north of the original start map). The game covers 4 years (1941-1944), and the manual gives you goals to try and accomplish each year. The author (Phil Keller) also gives a shoutout to Steve Berry for some programming help, and to Coco Max for drawing the map.
