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.

Nice to see a dedicated dev team on a mod on WWI, 1 century after the beginning of the Great War, not so often portrayed in games. Keep up the good works !

It's historically consistent and a blast to play! It introduces smooth new mechanics(such as chemical warfare) without breaking the importance ones already present! Worth every bit and byte!

Remember remember... fighting from trench to trench. So does the enemy. Don't expect much dynamic warfare in this mod 'cause there wasn't. But it matches exactly.

That mod contains everything that comes into my mind when thinking about the ww1; slow moving tanks, biplanes, poison gas and big guns. Additionally the mod offers new maps and some cool gameplay improvements like the 3 different infantry companies, what makes this good mod to a excellent one.
Just wanted to mention 2 things: The british machine gun entrenchment has a larger range than the building ghost shows. In my opinion, also the airstrike could need a rework: I expected a single, accurate bomb. Instead of that a bombing run mashed up the enemy infantry and i don't get it how a Snopwith Camel could drop up to 6 bombs at once. Maybe you could replace the Snopwoth Camel model with a bomber model, or let it drop a single but heavier bomb - maybe that kind of explosion like a regular artillery impact. Well, except that this mod was truely perfect!
