You will take over the American Expeditionary Force. This is an extension of the original PG II "Crusade in the West" American campaign. So it is basically the six original scenarios with several new ones before and several after which I had already developed for my American Expeditionary Force campaign.
After a few training scenarios in Georgia and Alaska against British and Japanese forces, you get to command your own units against the Germans from 1941 to 1945. And if you do well enough, then you might end up fighting the Germans as well as Soviets in 1945.
You'll be dealing with a variety of new equipment. You'll start out with very light units and no aircraft in 1939. By the time you have finished, you may have some of the best equipment in the world including, artillery that can shoot seven hexes, and much more. But your enemy will have some interesting equipment as well.
This should be a lot of fun for anyone enjoying a well-researched campaign designed by a historian who is also a Panzer General buff. The campaign involves realistic scenarios along with plausible "what if" scenarios for 1946. This campaign also has realistic force levels so that you don't find yourself fighting 3000 Pzkw Vs in a battle that you know had only 150.
Tired of fighting the same battle over and over? Some battles have different versions depending on how you did on the previous scenario. You'll have the opportunity to encounter all this and much more in this Crusade in the West Extension Campaign for Panzer General II.
Field Marshall's Challenge -- 25% or lower
General's Challenge -- 50%
Officers Challenge -- 75%
NCO's Challenge -- 100%
Troopies Challenge -- 150% or higher
IMPORTANT NOTES -- Those playing at the Field Marshall or General level must not reload in the middle of a scenario. You can reload to the beginning of the campaign, or even to the beginning of the current scenario, but NEVER to simply replay the previous turn!
Those playing at the Field Marshall or General level MUST play the "Anchorage-2" scenario. This means that players at the two hardest levels must take either a Victory or a Loss at the "Reds in Dessau" scenario. (see campaign path below)
Players playing the Officer's, NCO's, or Troopies Challenge may reload at will, and may play the easier "Anchorage (1)" scenario if they wish.

This is pretty much a lineal campaign. Notice that the campaign path is almost the same whether you have Brilliant Victories, Victories, Tactical Victories or Losses.
1. Training in Savannah -- Any victory takes you to Training in Anchorage (scenario #2); Loss ends the campaign in a loss.
2. Training in Anchorage -- Any result takes to you the next scenario.
3. Rising Sun in Alaska -- Any result takes to you the next scenario.
4. Salerno -- Any result takes to you the next scenario.
5. Advance on St. Lo -- Any result takes to you the next scenario.
6. Caen – Operation Charnwood -- Any result takes to you the next scenario.
7. Arracourt -- Any result takes to you the next scenario.
8. Metz -- Any type of victory takes to you the next scenario; a Loss ends the campaign in a loss.
9. Dessau -- Any type of victory takes to you the next scenario; a Loss ends the campaign in a loss.
10. Reds in Dessau -- Brilliant Victory or Tactical Victory goes to Anchorage. A normal Victory or Loss goes to Anchorage-2
11. Anchorage -- Any type of victory ends the campaign in a win; a Loss ends the campaign in a loss.
(12. Anchorage-2) -- Any type of victory ends the campaign in a win; a Loss ends the campaign in a loss.
Narayan has set up this campaign so that you will always be able to see your score at the end, even if you lose. So you may see a victory message at the end of the campaign even though you have lost. Even a loss for the campaign will show up in your Best Careers screen. But to win this Campaign and to be included on the Scroll of Honor for this Challenge Campaign, you must end Anchorage or Anchorage-2 with a BV, Victory, or a TacVic. Any other result is considered a Loss for the campaign despite the fact that you will be able to view your score at the end.
Scenarios with a "2" suffix are similar, but harder than their non-2 counterparts. In other words, "Anchorage-2" is more difficult than "Anchorage". So if you want more of a challenge, you can deliberately go for the harder scenarios since you have the scenario path above. Those playing the Field Marshall's and General's Challenge MUST play Anchorage-2! So you NEED to get either a Victory or a Loss at "Reds in Dessau" if you are playing at one of the two hardest prestige levels!
Also note that Narayan has reused the same file names for multiple campaigns. So despite the fact that this is an American campaign, you may see file names starting with NS_USSR. Don’t worry. They are the correct files.
