Modern day tactics used by most of today's advanced armies find their roots in WWII doctrine. These tactics evolved throughout conflicts and wars that followed such as Korea, Vietnam, Africa, Bosnia, Afghanistan, and Iraq. The Conflict of Heroes series follows these evolutions by featuring a fast and fluid system that is easy to learn, but realistic for every unique time period portrayed. CoH offers you and your opponents a wealth of options to learn and explore the combined arms tactics needed to win each engagement. It offers just the right level of abstraction so more time can be spent fighting the opponent and exploring unique new techniques rather than fighting the rules.
