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.

17 comments by Dartborne on Jul 18th, 2014

During operation market garden,  Canadians were securing ports on the English Channel, and only intervened in operation to help in the evacuation of the commandos in arnhem-oosterbeek

 -Want you a new doctrine in market garden to replace the Canadians?

-Do you wish that Canadians have unique units of his army or be a support for the British troops?

-Do you want to use the mobile trucks or prefer base structures as the desert rats?

Reply to these questions. The EaW's future is in your hands!

Update (canadian doctrines):

-Royal canadian artillery support/3rd Canadian Infantry Division

-Royal commandos support/Royal marines

-Royal engineers support/1st Polish Armored Division

I don't know much about Temp folders, but I am guessing you need more Hard Drive space.

POW is Prisoner Of War.
Iow it means you can take infantry units as prisoners from the enemy side.
if you ever played the Market Garden Campaign in OF you know what i mean.

Also can the dev team correct some of the loading tips when you load a game, either starting or from a save, Campaign,Skirmish and MP, some of them i have to retranslate to understand and a few players do not understand what they try to say, it is quite irritating for me and proparbly for others. All in all you have made an superb mod and you should keep up the good work, i will be watching you from now on.

Will we also itf (in the future) see some experimental weapons being used by both sides, like Kugelblitz and Flakpanther Coelian?, it would not be bad with more variety of vehicles, units and equipment for both sides and all factions, confirmed we can use the MAUS in Tank Wars, which at best would be classified as a prototype tank due to 2 complete hulls and 1 turret only being made.

If you wanna play with me or have questions of anything COH related, i can be reached on steam via this name John Gustav Armfeldt, i will try to answer any questions you have to the fullest of my abilities.
PS i am not part of the dev team.

I am also normally in the COH Mods channel ingame, or either in Canberra or Stockholm channel.

I play COOP matches, skirmishes and custom missions which is players vs AI, i am pro axis as well.

Just download it
When it's done open the zip and right click on the file and put "extract to desktop"
Then just open the file from the desktop
After a minute or so an auto installer will show up
It has simple instructions and will guide you in the installation
Make sure to install it to steam (program files/steam/steamapps/common/companyofheroes relaunch folder)
And it'll extract everything to the folder
Once done you have to set the shortcut
Go to your library and right click on COH relaunch
There should be a thing called "properties"
Click on that
Then you'll have a little window
It should say "set launch options"
Click that and put " -mod Europe_At_War"
Then just start the game as you would start I normally and there you go

If you need anything else just contact me on steam
My name is danielaranda568
