Default Battles in a distant Desert

A while ago, there was a company called "Glacier Edge Technology", that made a few shareware games back in the early 1990s. They made a few strategy games for Windows 3.1, which were all based on a similar engine. The shareware versions came with 1 scenario for each game, and limited the number of turns. There were a few other scenarios you could buy for each game, which were suprisingly expensive.

The games were all made by a man named Eric Dybsand, and he died in 2004. This probably means that the games are no longer available. I can only find the shareware versions of these games on the . Does anyone have the full version of any of these games?

Here's a list of the ones that I'm looking for:

BATTLES IN A DISTANT DESERT
BATTLES ON DISTANT PLANETS
WORLD WAR II BATTLES: NORMANDY
LANDS OF SWORDS AND SORCERY

No trace of information about the company itself... I guess it may have been a one-man enterprise by mr Dybsand (which is more-or-less confirmed by the fact that the company's website was hosted on his personal webspace).

The games are not sold anywhere, Glacier Edge Technology is not an ESA member or subsidiary... [APPROVED]
