In 1688, Louis XIV embarked upon a war of aggression later called the Nine Year's War or the WAR OF THE GRAND ALLIANCE. At the same time, supported by influential British political and religious leaders, Wiliam III Prince of Orange crossed the Channel to invade England, deposing the English King James II, his father-in-law, in the "Glorious Revolution."
Nine Years: The War of the Grand Alliance is a stand alone game using the No Peace Without Spain system. In addition to the Grand Alliance scenario (from 1688-1699), players owning both this game and No Peace Without Spain can play the epic Grand Campaign scenario running from 1688 to 1713. Now players can recreate one of the decisive moments in European history, as France begins its long slide to revolution, Austria enjoys its last moment of continental dominance and Britain asserts itself as the preeminent power of Europe.
