The Great War mod is a total conversion modification for Napoleon: Total War. It aims to create an authentic representation of World War 1-era tactics, strategies and general warfare within the game. Watch as waves of battalions advance under the cover of massed artillery barrages and deadly poison gas, or stay and play it safe hidden behind their defenses. Machineguns will brutally mow down uncareful attackers and defenses are manned by thousands of troops, armed with rapid breech-loaded rifles. SMG Infantry, Flamethrowers, Snipers and Elite Stormtroopers are a few among the many units that attempt to break the stalemate, while the sheer industrial output of all nations in the conflict - and the density of forces along most fronts - ensure that advances are measured in metres, not in the grand distances of earlier days. Commanders must learn to control massive battles, where audacity and wit must overcome seemingly impossible odds.
Dreadnoughts rule the waves in the grand collisions between the world's mightiest navies, while cruisers and destroyers launch raids on ports and merchant shipping, gradually forcing nations into starvation and resource shortages. Battles are carried out at long ranges, with the biggest metal titans bolstering an impressive and unprecedented firepower.
The artillery barrages, huge explosions, clouds of dense poisonous gas and the sheer scale of battles help create a feeling of awe and truly exposes the capabilities and wonders of the 'Total War 3' engine. Watch battalions evaporate under withering shelling, melt away in poison gas or be turned into piles of corpses in front of enemy positions in the mods enthralling land battles.
Rule at the head of any of the many countries that watched Europe become engulfed in war, lead your nation however you want in a free sandbox campaign that set you off at the start of the war.
The Greatest war the world has ever seen is about to begin, it's time for you to take your place in it.
War has begun and the time has come to teach those Germans a lesson. Since stealing Alsace-Lorraine from us four decades ago, they have continually threatened the stability of Europe and the safety of all of their neighbors, ourselves included. Now the Austrians feel they can seize the Balkans without penalty, and the Kaiser thinks he can bully the rest of the world into accepting it. No longer! The days of Bismarck are over, and it's time for someone to put the German barbarians in their place! With the help of our allies, we will show the bullies of the Central Powers that only the free people of Europe can control their own destinies.
Much has changed since our defeat in 1871. Our army is one of the largest in Europe, and our soldiers remain the finest in the world. We can also call upon our colonies for additional support, and the colonial troops at our disposal have never failed to achieve results. Our fleet, together with that of our British allies, can defeat any navy in the world, and our aerial forces are the most advanced of any nation. With the navy and natural resources of the British, and the immense military strength of the Russians, not even the mighty Kaiser stands a chance. If the Germans don't kill themselves smashing against our defenses, we will take the war into their lands, and all the way to Berlin if we must! Vive la France!
