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

Hello!

Thanks for the great mod!

What music track is playing while the mod is installing? It's so damn familiar, but I can't remember the name.

Thanks.

Hi there,

I downloaded and installed the mod and had to use the -mod Europe_At_War in COH Steam Startup to work. It did. I have COH Europe At War ver 6.1.8 as the main screen. However, the campaigns are the same as in the vanilla version; Omaha Beach, Operation Market Garden, Liberation of Caen.. etc.

How would I access the new campaigns, please? Africa and Italian ones particularly.

Thanks.

The campaigns are the same as vanilla CoH, to access African and Italian maps select maps on skirmish that start with either Africa/AK or Italian Front, same goes with Operation Varsity for German maps. Though these are not campaigns just skirmishes, they are just based on the historical campaigns that took place.

Does anyone else have an issue where you will randomly receive a "De-sync" error? I seem to get these all the time, and only when playing EaW.
