Overview

War has been central to the human story for thousands of years. Just as it has destroyed lives and ended empires, it has shaped society, influenced culture and driven politics.

From the warrior societies of ancient Greece, to the Crusader states of medieval Europe, to the ‘total’ wars of the twentieth century, humans have waged war. Throughout the ages, human societies have persistently organised themselves to fight – toppling rulers, invading neighbours and forging empires.

With such a wide-ranging impact throughout history, there’s a diverse selection of units on offer, allowing you to pursue your own passions within the subject – from classical to modern, and from civil war to international conflict.
