The Great War is a modification for Company of Heroes meant to bring the war two decades earlier. This mod focuses on the later years of the First World War. Currently the two teams will be the British Expeditionary Force against the German Empire, however with time the team will try and bring some more nations in, such as France and Austria-Hungary. This mod will focus or realism but keep the game balanced enough to make it enjoyable. Things to look for in the mod are the famous artillery strikes and the infamous gas attacks. Trenches will provide vital cover for infantry while tanks will roll over the battlefield and instil fear into the enemy troops.

The world is at war. Both sides appeared spent as the Western Front lay in stalemate. The war which already claimed the lives of millions showed little sign of faltering; disease was rife and casualties mounted. As morale crumbled, both in the home countries and across the battlefields, perhaps the time had come to fix this broken war... perhaps the time had come for a new weapon?

"The victory in this war will belong to which of the two belligerents which will be the first to place a field gun on a vehicle able to be driven on all terrain" Jean-Baptiste Eugène Estienne,Père des Chars

Landships

The world is at war. Both sides appeared spent as the Western Front lay in stalemate. The war which already claimed the lives of millions showed little sign of faltering; disease was rife and casualties mounted. As morale crumbled, both in the home countries and across the battlefields, perhaps the time had come to fix this broken war... perhaps the time had come for a new weapon?

Inspired by a curious mix science-fiction and farm tractors, the desperation drove the British Empire to the construction of mighty steel machines which would shatter the traditional art of war. Birthed from thick armour, a rugged mobility and a terrific arsenal, the Landships were created.

Now, the year is 1918. Still pounding terror across the frontlines, the British Landships have continually devastated the German ranks. These mighty vehicles, invulnerable to machine guns and small arms fire, have been able to lead charges into the stunned enemy defences. Yet it was only a matter of time before the German Empire bred their own species of monster. The tank wars iconic to the twentieth century were only just beginning...
