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.
We have completely revamped the equipment and uniforms for every factions units. The major powers have historically accurate uniforms and equipment while the minors have received generic WW1 style versions.
The new uniform and equipment models are such a massive change from the original versions we decided it was time to create new unit and info cards for every unit. This is by far the most time consuming part of the update, a large amount of work goes into just a single unit and we have many many units. In fact by the time we are finished we will have one of the largest collections of historical WW1 uniforms in the world.

I am giving this mod a 10, not just because I know it will be amazing. But because of the hard work and determination that the developers have put into this mod. 3 Years of incredible work.
Not just that. But also with the troubles on release day they have worked all day and night trying to get it working. For this they have my utter most thanks and gratitude.
Thank you. For all your hard work.
