Each week four contestants come together as a team to recreate a historical battle via computer simulator. With two of the group playing generals with an overview of the battlefield, the other two play Lieutenants who are more in touch with the progress of the battle. When they lose or win, two military historians take them through on the simulator what actually happened in the real battle. Written by

, a recently released strategy game produced by The Creative Assembly and published by Activision. The same process is used for the History Channel documentary series, Decisive Battles
, for its CGI battle reenactments. See more
