There are countless free online strategy war games around the web and I've dabbled quite a bit in the genre. I've included some of my favourites below to help other fans of the genre find the perfect game for them.
So what are the defining elements of the genre? The game has to be free and online (playable in your browser) of course, waiting for your instructions to be finished is also a key ingredient of this genre. Finally an element that makes the genre for me is enough strategic depth to sink your teeth into over the long term.
I hope you'll find this collection of free online strategy war games suitable to your needs and don't hesitate to leave your own comments and opinions below.
