Generalship is a compact strategy game and the players can experience the history of Europe.
You will compete using 49 highly famed generals in Europe from the 4th century B.C. to the 19th century. You choose a nation to rule: Austria, Byzantium, England, or France, and then appoint a general from the 49 ones available as your commander. Using this, you will run your nation internally by accumulating political power, increasing production and population, and developing technologies. You will handle your external politics by raising armies and managing alliance relationships.
While shaping history with other players, based on your efficient use of actions, the abilities of your commander, and a little bit of luck, you will be able to win by earning more victory points than your competitors. Specifically, players can earn victory points by winning battles or developing new technologies.
