"Gods and Generals" is a game based on the Gods and Generals movie. You play the role of a Company Captain leading your men into battle at 2nd Bull Run, Fredricksburg, and Chancellorsville. For you the pressure is even more intense. Because of the confidence your Generals have in you, they rely on you to execute special missions that will shorten each battle and reduce casualties. Your orders lead you on missions of reconnaissance, sabotage, stealth attacks, river crossings, charging attacks, and all out war. Fortunately, the Generals have given you the latest in advanced weaponry of the day including revolvers, scoped rifles, and even hand grenades. Unfortunately, you may encounter your best friend across the battlefield.
