Civilization III: War Academy

War is a matter of vital importance to the state; a matter of life or death, the road either to survival or to ruin. Hence, it is imperative that it be studied thoroughly. — Sun Tzu

Welcome to the War Academy, generals! This Academy is dedicated to strategy and tactics for Civilization III.

We don’t just cover military strategies.

Currently there are 121 lessons in the Academy. The articles have been organized into several broad categories to make the academy easier to use.
