What is "Europe at War"?
EaW is a historical mod for Company of Heroes that adds new battlefronts with new commander trees, abilities, units, vehicles and weapons for each, representing in the best way, as far as possible, historical accuracy, to immerse players in a much more realistic gaming experience. Situated on a Western theatre from the warm sands of north africa, italian battlefields, beaches of Normandy, Dutch Tulip fields and the defensive lines of the Rhine in germany. (may be considered a "5 in 1" mod )
Command the 8th British Army or Rommel's DAK. three new doctrines for each army and new real units prepared for combat in the desert.
Tanks and anti-tank can yield the maximum in the great plains of sand, but we must not neglect the sky: the RAF and the Luftwaffe are in constant fight for the air domain.
Allied troops landed in Italy from sea and air. During this long campaign the Allied and Axis forces fought fiercely for every hill and every village. The companies just have very few heavy tanks due to the mountainous terrain. The defense, aviation and artillery are imposed.
The paratroopers were sent far from their objectives and scattered, even so achieved most of its objectives. Landing troops took heavy losses on the beaches but finally forced the withdrawal of the defenders. Hedges became death traps for the infantry and Shermans. The German anti-tank and machine guns were hiding in any corner. The Luftwaffe was almost nonexistent and allied air supremacy makes the difference against the powerful axis tanks.
What at first seemed a perfect plan became hell for the Men of the XXX corps. The paratroopers met their targets quite effectively, but were isolated from the armored support, fighting with heavy casualties until run out of ammo. The only American troops (82nd &101st airborne) are dropped more near and could join the British tanks, but the German ambushes on Highway 69 delayed the progress and finally stopped the offensive.
The Patton and Montgomery armies prepare to cross the Rhine, trying to secure the bridges, using boats and floating bridges. Gathered ammunition, soldiers and tanks. The artillery constantly bombard the opposite river bank, while the German divisions were entrenched to resist attack. The axis used the remains of the Luftwaffe, artillery and V1 rockets to try to destroy the remagen bridge, but without success. At this stage were used late tanks like the Jagdtiger, the M26 pershing or the T26E1 Super pershing.

*How to install EaW?
-select your coh directory on the installer or unzip the file on it.
Old relic servers are closed, if you want play online you need download "coh new steam version" and install EaW on this directory.
We've come a long way, we have fought in the warm sands of North Africa, in the mountain villages of Italy, we have crossed the beaches and hedgerows of Normandy and bleeding in the dutch tulip fields...we are in 1945, the winter is over and the battle of the bulge has ended (great job, Halftrack ), the Allies prepare to cross the rhine and the Germans will fight to defend their homeland ...
The goal of adding this new front is to improve historical accuracy, so that more late vehicles can be placed in the corresponding period.(M24 chaffee, M26 pershing, T26E1 super pershing, Jagdtiger, nashorn, flammhetzer, jeep calliope and others...) This will reduce the available vehicles in Normandy and Holland, but also allow use most modern tanks in normal games.
Give me your opinion.
requires EaW v6.1.6, extract in your CoH directory.
