The War to End All Wars was first published in 1998 and has since been the flagship product to the long and successful Empires of History board game series. Historically accurate Axis & Allies(*1) variants covering a wide range of conflicts from ancient times to modern.
The War to End All Wars is a territorial strategy board game covering World War I on all fronts. The War to End All Wars presents the First World War in a couple different ways. The first of these is a historical simulation that offers alliances, political structures, and entry times for the various nations designed to mirror the actual historical chain events that transpired in real life. The second scenario is the semi historical scenario and makes allowances for player choices and deviant actions by many nations. This scenarion can see Japan get more active in the war, the US and/or Italy possibly enter on the Central Powers side, the Ottomans stay neutral or even join the Allies, and much more.
While not a complex game that breaks down the individual national armies into named brigades or divisions, the level of historical detailing in The War to End All Wars is enough that multiple professors now utilize this game to help teach the WW1 era to middle, high school, and even college students.
