Empires
Great Britain
Capital: London (England)
Provinces: England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales
Key Commanders: Barnard, Wellington

Great Britain has an advantage - being an island limits the possibility of invasion. This can also be a disadvantage however, as it makes it more difficult to gain access to other countries. Because of this the British player must plan from the outset, the building of a great fleet.

Although Great Britain does not possess the largest army its soldiers are well trained; commanded by capable officers; and willing to die for the glory of their King and their nation.
Captain
This officer may command up to three Troops.

Captains are the lowest-ranking officers that can lead men on the battlefield. There, they may co-ordinate and command up to three Troops. Captains are trained at the Military Academy.
Colonel
This officer may command up to four Troops.

Colonels are of a higher rank than Captains. This rank can be obtained after building the Advanced Garrison or after promoting a Captain in recognition of his merits on the battlefield. Colonels may command up to four Troops in combat.
General
This officer may command up to five Troops.

The General is the highest-ranking officer that can obtain his rank in an Academy; although a Colonel can also be promoted to General. Their position in the military hierarchy allows them to command up to five Troops.
Field Marshal
This officer may command up to six Troops.

Field Marshals do not come from any Academy; it is only in the field of honour where a General may earn promotion to this distinguished rank. Field Marshals may command up to six Troops.
Line Infantry
Basic infantry unit, capable of both melée and ranged attacks.

Also known as Red Coats, their ranks include former criminals and thieves who have become heroes in the eyes of the citizens of the British Empire, due to their great deeds on the battlefield. The Line Infantry from the main part of the British army and are particularly effective when attacking either with their muskets or with fixed bayonets.
Light Infantry
Adept at ranged attacks, but poor in melée combat.

The Light Infantry comprises some of the finest, marksmen in the British army. They are a lethal unit, trained in harassing and ranged attacks. Their main handicap is their vulnerability in hand-to-hand combat.
Grenadier Guards
Line infantry-like unit, but better skilled in both ranged attacks and melée combat.

They are formed of the toughest, most skilled men in the British army. They are one of the most feared units due to their skill with the musket and their lethal close combat abilities.

Riflemen
Light infantry-like unit, though better skilled in both ranged attacks and melée combat.

Riflemen are the elite unit of the British army's Light Infantry. Specially trained to use the terrain to their advantage, they are devastating to any enemy unit which finds itself within the considerable range of their rifles. Their main handicap is their vulnerability in hand-to-hand combat.
Black Watch
The elite Infantry unit of the British army, with excellent ranged attacks and melée combat.

The original and most famous Highlander regiment, the Black Watch takes its name from the colour of its soldiers' tartan. It is the most powerful offensive unit in the British Infantry, thanks to its deadly musket and bayonet attacks.
Household Cavalry
The only British cavalry regiment capable of both ranged attacks and melée combat.

Similar to Dragoons, the Household Cavalry is the elite British Medium Cavalry. Its main function on the field of battle is to harass and punish enemy units; its swift steeds and deadly musketoons its most powerful weapons.
Hussar
Very swift unit; employed for melée combat.

The Hussars, modelled on the Hungarian Light Cavalry, are the elite of the British Light Cavalry. Their main functions are to harass the enemy and to charge with their sabres - manoeuvres which are mostly performed to support their Infantry.
Lancers
Melée cavalry unit; the most skilled at breaching Square formations.

Lancers are one of the most fearsome shock troops. Their long lances and powerful steeds wreak havoc on both Cavalry and Infantry alike.
Lifeguards
The finest defence and melée combat of any class of Cavalry, but incapable of ranged attacks.

The Lifeguards are the most powerful shock troop in the British army. Their deadly sabres and powerful mounts enable them to attack with devastating force at close quarters.
