What was this early RPG I recall reading about?

I recall reading about an early (pre-D&D) form of role-playing game, in which the premise was that the player(s) were junior officers making a reconnaissance of a border town, where there might be other officers or agents from the other side, in the tension before a war about to start. What was the game? What did I read?
