The Great War in the Near East.

Pursuit of Glory: The Great War in the Near East is a sequel to the original, award-winning Paths of Glory by Ted Raicer and is designed with his permission. The new game puts you in the driver's seat as theater commanders for either the British/Russian alliance or the Ottoman Empire. The action stretches from the Balkans to the borders of India, from the Black Sea to Suez. Invasions by sea, holy war, revolts, revolution await, as well as some of the most famous personages of the First World War - Lawrence, Allenby, Enver, the Grand Duke Nicholas, Churchill, Kitchener.

Take for example, the case of Jafar Pasha. He was an Iraqi Arab trained for military leadership at Istanbul and in Germany. He was decorated by the Turks, awarded the German Iron Cross, assisted in fortifying Gallipoli, and was hand picked to lead the Senussi rebellion against the British in Egypt. While engaged in this mission, he was captured and imprisoned, escaped and was recaptured, eventually winning the hearts of his British captors, for Jafar was a model of civilization and decorum. When the Arab Revolt broke out, Jafar helped recruit Ottoman POWs to join the Arab cause, and the British eventually released him for service in the Arab Revolt. He became Prince Faisal's chief of staff, leading the Arab Northern Army against the Turks, earning a decoration from the British general Allenby (his guard of honor being the very ANZAC cavalry unit that had almost killed him when he was leading the Senussi). After the war, the British installed him as Iraq's minister of defense, and he later served as Iraqi Prime Minister and as Iraq's ambassador to England, spending the night twice in Buckingham Palace. This story epitomizes the nature of World War One in the Near East. It captures the wild-eyed flavor of Pursuit of Glory - razor-edged, variable, tense, exciting.

If you are looking for a game that is relevant topically, will teach you much, and will offer you a fun, tense, wild, frantic roller coaster of a ride, please consider Pursuit of Glory: The Great War in the Near East. We think you will be pleased.
