August 1914: For two generations there has been no war between the Great Powers of Europe. Now, following the assassination of the Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand by Serb nationalists, the Central Powers (Germany, Austria-Hungary and minor nations) are at war with the Entente (Russia, France, Great Britain plus minors). The cheering crowds in every nation expect their armies to return victorious 'before the leaves fall.' But there will be no easy triumph, and as more nations are drawn into the conflict, the bloodletting will continue on a massive scale for four more years. Finally, on November 11, 1918, a defeated Germany will sign the Armistice, ending what we know today as the First World War.

In The First World War you control the armies that battled for control of Europe’s destiny. Deploying your forces on a game board of Europe from Constantinople to the English Channel, you must fight for control of key cities to gain victory in an age of Total War.
