Army of Flanders
Army of Flanders: Le Divertissment Royal is a hardcore war game set in the 17th century. It is the 13th installment in the Lace Wars saga.
In Army of Flanders, you will have a chance to change history - and even if you cannot, perhaps you can win enough glory to write your name in the history books. Flanders is the source of Gloire, and the graveyard of reputations.
This game is the third in a set of four dealing with the War of the Grand Alliance (1688-1697). This war, sometimes called the War of the League of Augsburg or the Nine Years War, was the second of the three great wars of Louis XIV. As a young man he waged the Dutch War to expand France's borders. That was a war of aggression. As an old man he fought the War of the Spanish Succession to put his grandson on the throne of Spain. Despite the King's ultimate aim, that was a defensive war. The War of the Grand Alliance was Louis' war of middle age - a war of grinding attrition involving nearly a million men.
