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.
This will guide you through the process of installing The Great War 1918 modification for Company of Heroes.

1) download the tgw1918_v1_0.exe
2) once the download is completed, double-click on tgw1918_v1_0.exe to start extraction of the mod files.
2a) you will be asked for a destination folder; this must be your COMPANY OF HEROES directory! (i.e. that's where Company of Heroes is installed and RelicCoH.exe can be found)
+ The CoH directory for the new Steam version will look like this:
"C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Company of Heroes Relaunch"
+ The CoH directory for the old Steam version will look like this:
"C:\program files\steam\steamapps\common\company of heroes"
+ The CoH directory for the retail version will look like this:
"C:\program files\THQ\company of heroes"
2b) once you have entered your Company of Heroes directory under "Destination folder", click "Extract"
2c) if asked to, overwrite all files.
(otherwise you will end up with older versions of the mod files)
