Spirit of War is a strategy war game inspired by board games. It takes place during World War I, putting you in the middle of battles from 1914 to 1918. As you fight alongside your allies, you will try to figure out new ways to take down your enemies. You will do so on land, in the air, and in the water. You have to take control of every part of the battlefield if you want to emerge victorious. This means having a detailed battle plan that can truly win over the opponent. If you want to have some more fun here, you can also try out the local two player mode that is available.

In Spirit of War, you have turn-based combat on a field with hex pieces. It is similar to many board games that you know, including hugely popular strategy board games. The movements, the options, and gameplay will all feel familiar, but with its own twist on things.

Going back to realism, Spirit of War does amaze even the most dedicated to war strategy games. The developers employed a real historian to create a diary. You can read from this diary after your turns to learn more about the events that took place.

This gives you a detailed account of the war from someone who understands it better than most. It is not like reading a textbook; it is more like reading the diary of someone who knew those involved closely and who could give you every important detail of the way.
