Caesar 3 Battle Tactics


These HTML pages present some of the possible tactics for dispatching enemies.

The original idea for this essay is from Moquel. His original post in the forum received several replies before it was sucked into cyberspace. Terratheon picked up the thread and started a new series of postings and managed to resurrect Moquel's original post.

Jayhawk enhanced the original posts with images and tactical diagrams.

The aim of these pages is to present the posts in a slightly more organised way and, at the same time, put the in to a downloadable format.
