    This guide is written to provide an insight into the various scenarios that
    make up the Single Player Campaigns that shipped out with Age of Supremacy
    (AoS). After playing Empire Earth II last year I set it aside and moved on to
    other games. I replayed it again in preparation of AoS when I recently bought
    the expansion.  I was surprised that no guides existed already. Either the
    expansion was not that popular or a guide was not needed.  In any case I
    decided to take down notes and write one as I played through the scenarios.
    
    I have written character guides before for Neverwinter Nights, but this is
    the first time I have done a walkthrough for a strategy game.  I have been
    playing strategy PC games since they were created, who remembers Empire and
    Civilization?  I don't claim to be a great player and I don't really get into
    the multi-player aspects of these games, but I am experienced in many games.  I
    plan to make this guide to serve as an outline of my strategy used for the
    completion. It not intended to be the best way to complete each scenario, but I
    will include strategy revisions from other players if they are constructive and
    help make the guide better.

    For Empire Earth II (EE2) the first basic component that players need to
    master is the resources.  Balancing them can be a matter of preference and
    experienced players probably have their own ideas.  Some scenarios require some
    adjustments based on Objectives to be accomplished.  My basic prefence is to
    use only 3-4 food (including boats), 7-10 wood, 5-6 stone, 4-6 gold (including
    traders), 2-4 of the specials depending on usage.  Of course in scenarios where
    the Population Capacity (Pop Cap) is around 200 or more this may need to be
    increased.
    
    For Tech Research I usually go for 1 university and 1 temple, but that
    depends on starting buildings and units.  I tend to not use priests units
    except for special Objectives, so I put the starting units into a Temple.  I
    will sometimes go with only 1 building for research if there is no Epoch
    advancement in the early Epochs when research is cheaper.
    
    I usually use at least one dedicated building team with 2-4 citizens to
    handle my main construction efforts.  This team is usually building the
    defenses around my primary Areas of Interest (AOIs) initially.  As I expand
    into new territories throughout the Area of Operations, they follow the army's
    advance, building the forward defenses and infrastructure.  I use regular
    resource gathers to do spot building/repairing in nearby locations if
    necessary.  Using the [Shift] key to queue up orders and send them back their
    resource gathering without revisiting them again.
    
    In my strategy I am probably light on resource gathering.  In most
    scenarios it is going to boil down to attrition principles and the more you
    cost the enemy compared to your expenses while preserving the main army is to
    your advantage.  I don't like throwing away armies and rebuilding them quickly
    with a larger resource gathering plan.  I prefer letting the enemy kill
    themselves on my defenses until my larger army rolls over them.  Identifying
    key AOIs and Choke Points (CPs) are important to protect against
    counter-attacks and invasions during the scenarios.  Also proper defenses are
    necessary to ensure resource gathering efforts are not disrupted by the enemy.
    Consolidating the resource operations into protected areas is best. It does
    mean the enemy could really hurt if they can attack those areas, but the idea
    is to prevent them from ever getting close.
    
    For armies I usually use 1-2 infantry groups, mixed with balance of all 3
    types of infantry plus light artillery.  The heavy artillery is grouped
    separately to keep them behind the infantry and keep the infantry army
    formation more compact and manageable.  Also use 1-2 mobile groups of cavalry
    for quick response and flanking attacks/raids.  In later Epochs the cavalry is
    replaced by more modern equivelants.  Air and Anti-air is used to support the
    ground forces.
    
    With the heroes, I tend to split them among the 2 infantry armies if
    appropriate and form armies to make them more effective.  The heavy artillery
    and cavalry heroes stay with their type of units.  Winning the military crown
    can turn one of your ranged heroes or the named leader into better strategist
    as well.  The supreme strategist should always be with the main army. At the
    end of a scenario, tributing a few extra surplus units to be killed by the
    appropriate type of unit can get those last remaining kills to get the hero not
    yet received.
    
    In some situations a spy can be a force multiplier to sabotage an enemy
    fortress while your army has to operate in its vicinity and it is difficult to
    knock it down with heavy artillery without taking a heavy toll on the army.
    
    Going for the Imperial crown first can speed along the Tech Point gathering
    to gain the other Crowns faster.

      Secondary:  Defeat Bandit Camp
                  Tribute Gold to Gain Market Tech
    
    [3.1.2] Battlefield Intelligence
    --------------------------------
    Narrow map with rocky terrain narrowing movements to ravine passages.  Large
    flat areas for construction are limited.
    * Starting city of Esna is in NW corner protected mostly by ridges and trees.
    Resources are all present and accessible.
    * Abydos shares the NE border of the starting territory they remained
    friendly/neutral throughout the scenario.
    * The Black Sun Bandits have some forces in small groups in the passages
    betwen Esna and Dumyat, but no city centers or military production. Their
    stronghold is in the SE corner, protected with palisades and a ridege with a
    narrow slope to access.
      * Key CPs: #1 Gap in SE corner of Esna just South of eastern barracks
                 #2 NE of Dumyat just over ridge with stone and gold resources
    
    
    [3.1.3] Course of Actions
    -------------------------
    1.  Reorganize the resource gathering and set up some Tech Point gathering.
    Need heavier emphasis on wood, stone, and gold than normal. Stone is actually
    in Abydos North of Esna's city center, but a warehouse can be built on the
    ridge next to it. Gold is a little difficult to see behind the trees NE of the
    city center.  Build temple and garrison a 2nd priest.
    
    2.  Build a few defenses at CP#1, setting the rally points of the military
    production buildings to be just behind.
    
    3.  The initial military units with Kemsa can head south, moving slowly to
    take out the small pockets of bandits one at a time.  Initial unique elephants
    should be sent along to assist.
    
    4.  The initial army push on to liberate Dumyat using Kemsa's rally power
    after getting past the fortress before fighting cavalry near CP#2.
    
        5.  Upgrade units when possible.
    
        6.  Claim the territory just South of Esna.
    
    7.  New military units will create 2nd army with artillery, elephants and
    infantry, assembling to defend at CP#1.
    
    8.  The new citizens in Dumyat can be put to work gathering more wood,
    stone, and gold to build the 2 Wonders (approximately 3000 wood, 3000 stone and
    2000 gold will be needed).  Build a city center in Dumyat next to the fortress
    build defenses at CP#2.
    
    9.  The Kemsa's army can head North from CP#2 via western most passage to
    discover the market and pay the requested tribute (700 gold) to gain the Tech.
    Send the army back to Esna after leaving a detachment of 15-20 to defend CP#2.
    
    10. During battles try and gain heroes in artillery, elephants and ranged
    infantry to assist in later scenarios. building more of those units to increase
    their kills.
    
    11. With heavy artillery support attack the bandit towers and gate just SE
    of CP#1 and push up the slope to destroy the outpost and barracks.
    
    12. Start building the Wonders as the resources are available, using the
    market to make up for shortfalls.  The Imperial Leader will speed the
    foundation along significantly before the citizens actually start building.
    
    13. Build city center in territory East of Esna and another in the
    territory North of Dumyat.
    
        14. Advance to Epoch 3 when ready and upgrade units again.
    
    15. Invade the bandits with entire army by heading towards the SE corner
    and destroy all their buildings.  The slope accessing the flat area of their
    territory is almost due East from the market NE of Dumyat.
    
        16. Finish building the 2nd Wonder after bandits are eliminated.
    
    
    [3.2] Black Sun Over the Delta

    Square Map with 2 rivers and some ridges to provide protection on some borders.
    A ridge runing SE to NW divides the area in half with openings at each end.
    * The Baraka City of Iunet takes the SE corner of the map.  Their Northern
    border is defended by a wall to help protect them against the Black Sun Bandits.
    * Moyale shares Herakleopolis's NW border and is controlled by the Black Sun
    Bandits.
    * The river separates Moyale from the neutral Lybians City of Edfu and is
    accessible by a bridge WNW of the Moyale city center.
    * The Black Sun Stronghold and third territory cover the NE area between
    Khmunu and the Baraka with fortresses to defend both fronts.
      * Key CPs: #1 Gap in NE Moyale at bottom of slope leading to Khmunu
                 #2 The northern border of the Baraka territory
    
    [3.2.3] Course of Actions
    -------------------------
    1.  Reorganize resource gathering efforts.  Initially heavy food is not
    required, but need to gather 4000 before the end of the scenario. Gold is also
    needed to quickly form the alliance with the Baraka. Garrison both Universities.
    
    2.  Scout unclaimed territory South and build city center when possible.
    Scout East to make contact with Baraka in the SE corner.
    
    3.  Send initial military units to defend against the first attacks just
    East of CP#1.
    
    4.  Train a citizen in Khmunu to build defenses and a barracks to defend
    the Temple of Horus.
    
    5.  Train more military units and set rally points in Moyale.  Build city
    center.  Some enemy may cross the bridge from Lybia initially but only because
    they were scouting and are returning back.
    
    6.  Build defenses to cover CP#1 and make a good kill zone. Include heavy
    artillery support for further invasion and take out enemy outpost covering CP.
    Expect strong counter-attack.
    
    7.  Tribute 750 gold to Baraka to form the alliance.  Quickly build some
    outposts behind the walls to protect Iunet and keep the Baraka from being hurt
    from counter-attacks.  If necessary send a small detachment of 10-15 units to
    assist.
    
        8.  Upgrade units and make Kemsa a supreme strategist.
    
    9.  Take main army without heavy artillery to slow them down and raid East
    from CP#1 and swing around mountain and along water to take out the workshop.
    Return back to Moyale to heal and reinforce.
    
    10. Make sure the 4000 food has been gathered before finishing off the
    remaining Black Sun military units and production buildings.  Empty the
    universities after winning the crowns to ensure enough food is gathered.
    
    11. Once main army is maximized invade the Black Sun stronghold from either
    front and destroy everything. Rebuild 1st city center in a more convenient
    location to heal up the army if necessary before the last push to clean up the
    remaining defenses and buildings in the 3rd remaining territory.  Ah-ket will
    be center of the Black Sun territories and should be killed during the
    fighting. Also free enemy reinforcements appear in the center of the eastern
    map edge in Al Isma'iliyah, even after the military production building are
    destroyed.

    the waterways isolating a few territories onto pennisulas.
    * Tmn-Hor occupies the SW area, but is surround by 6 unclaimed territories on
    3 sides. Al Minufiyah is North of Tmn-Hor on the otherside of the ridge with a
    barracks and a workshop to protect the warehouse near the only stone available.
    The road goes by as it heads North to the Pharoah's Tomb.
    * The Pharoah's Tomb in Al Jizah is only protected by 2 outposts and the
    terrain is flat and open.

    * There is a second Tasian Cult stronghold in Qina on a pennisula SE of Al
    Jizah with the opening on the North end.  The unclaimed territory Shamat Sina'
    in between Al Jizah and Qina has some military production.
    * Tasian Cult's 4th city in Al Qahirah is NE of Al Jizah on another pennisula
    defended by outposts and possibly some naval units.

    stronghold, with two entrances with only light defenses.
      * Key CPs: #1: The North gate entrance of Tmn-Hor
    #2: The slope entrance on Tmn-Hor's East side and the narrow gap
    in the trees along the road just NE
    #3: The gap SE of Tmn-Hor between the ridge and the southern map
    edge along Suhaj's eastern border
    
    [3.3.3] Course of Actions
    -------------------------

    territories are protected by the 2nd waterway to the West.  There is a narrow
    CP to the SW into Tyrol. Brandenburg also separates the water along the North
    edge of the map.
    * Tyrol has a fortress to protect the CP with Saxony. Has narrow CPs North
    inot Schleswig and South to Italy.  Fairly open borber with Lorraine.
    * Lorraine has fairly open border with Schleswig, and 3rd waterway to the
    West.  There are narrow CPs to Paris in SW and Italy in the SE.
    * Paris is walled with towers and 2 sets of walls.  It also has many outposts
    and two fortresses.  Amsterdam covers the North borber outside the wall.
    * Key CPs: #1: Gap between mountain and waterway in SE Saxony on border with
    Bohemia and Moravia.
                 #2: Western border of Bohemia with Italy
                 #3: Gap in SW Saxony to Tyrol
                 #4: Gaps in mountains leading from Tyrol into Lorraine
                 #5: Gap leading South from Tyrol into Italy
                 #6: SW corner of Lorraine leading to Paris
    
    [4.5.3] Course of Actions
    -------------------------
    1.  Resource gathering is balanced, but light. University already
    garrisoned.
    
    2.  Split initial military into 2 groups to invade immediately.  Small army
    of 25-30 with light artillery support invades West Prussia.  Larger army with
    heavy artillery support invades Silesia.
    
    3.  Capture Silesia.  Raze West Prussia, sending heavy artillery to assist
    during capturing of Silesia's city center.
    
        4.  Upgrade military units.
    
    5.  Build houses in Silesia and new city center in West Prussia to claim.
    Put outposts along waterway to discourage bridge building to flank CP#1.
    
    6.  Build temple near Warsaw's university and garrison.  Build more
    citizens as soon as Pop Cap is increased.
    
    7.  After capture of Silesia and razing of West Prussia, combine armies and
    invade into NW Moravia and push to cover CP into Saxony, eliminate fortress and
    capture Bohemia.
    
    8.  Build fortress in NW Moravia to cover CP#1.  Build fortresses in
    Bohemia, one to cover CP#1 and 2nd to eastern approach to CP#2. Increases
    defenses to cover both areas.  France will counter-attack through Italy and may
    try to build bridges into Silesia or West Prussia to by-pass CP#1.
    
        9.  Tribute West Prussia to Frederick after claiming Bohemia.
    
    10. Maximize army, setting rally points to cover defenses at CP#1.  Build
    more barrracks to speed along reinforcements.
    
    11. Invade down to Austria. Raze Moravia and capture Austria.  Tributing
    Austria to Francis II will create an Alliance.  No need to rebuild Moravia's
    City Center this will keep the fortress and barracks built under Russian
    control.
    
    12. Push for Imperial Crown first to gain the Imperial leader to speed Tech
    Point gathering in Warsaw.  Then push for Military Crown to make Alexander a
    supreme strategist.
    
        13. Use small army detachment to cover defenses at CP#2.
    
    14. Invade into Saxony with main army.  Raze city center and push invasion
    into Brandenburg and capture.  Rebuild city center and tribute both to
    Frederick and create 2nd alliance.  Build some defenses at CP#3.
    
    15. Advance to Epoch 10 and upgrade cavalry and heavy artillery.  Shift
    citizens from iron to oil in Warsaw.
    
        16. Build medics to help heal army during invasions.
    
    17. Invade into Tyrol and capture, tributing to Austria.  Build some
    defenses to cover CP#4 and CP#5 against counter-attacks.
    
    18. Sweep into Lorraine and raze. Rebuild city center to cover army as it
    defends CP#6 and then build defenses. Tribute Bohemia to Austria.
    
    19. Between French counter-attacks invade North and raze Schleswig, leave
    allies to claim.
    
    20. Let Prussia and Austria attack Paris through CP#6 and follow in to
    assist, but preserve army and take care of Alexander.
    
    21. May be easier to build bridge from NW corner of Schleswig to Amsterdam
    and raze it.  Army can spread out more and knock down Paris defenses without
    getting chewed up.
    
    22. Once fortresses are destroyed, Paris can be finished off.  Napoleon
    will likely get killed long before invasion is complete.

    [5.2.2] Battlefield Intelligence
    --------------------------------
    Medium square map with 30% sea taking up West edge of the map.  A large
    mountain makes some wide CPs with the trees and ridges.
    * Start in Magadi in SE corner with opening to NW to unclaimed Namanga which
    is clear.
    * The other unclaimed territories in the NE half of the map contain small
    staionary pockets of Burkeneji infantry.
    * In the center of the area is a large mountain and the territory on the east
    side, Nakuru contains some outpost protecting a small Burkeneji settlement.
    * The Burkeneji have a stronghold with Globo Corp security forces walled in

    spy detection.
    * The Eco-pirates are in a small strip of land in the SW corner across the
    sea with 2 docks and a small starting navy.
    * Eldoret and Kisumu are on the coast, NE of Magadi with all resources
    available except food.  Fish is available, but the Eco-pirates tend to destroy
    unprotected fishing boats.
      * Key CPs: #1: Eastern border of Londiam, NW of the mountain
                 #2: Eastern border of Kericho, south of large mountain
    
    [5.2.3] Course of Actions
    -------------------------
    1.  Push scouts and spies to spread out NW.  Follow with army and secure
    Namanga.
    
    2. Move herd to West side of Namanga, push spies North to scout out
    Burkeneji infantry.
    
    3.  Take out enemy infantry groups on border, looking for Globo Corp patrol
    as well.  Let scouts cover SE flank to catch any straggling infantry trying to

    12. Send new military units from Eldoret to join army and move it South to
    the border of Kisumu East of the city center.  A big enemy push will come
    shortly through CP#2.
    
    13. The fortress in Eldoret will handle the Burkeneji group that attacks
    through CP#1.
    
    14. The big push is 3-4 groups that includes significant artillery support
    that head to Kisumu from CP#2.  The remaining scouts can lure the initial
    Burkeneji group towards the new outpost built.  Use army to hit the Globo Corp
    artillery groups that follow while in range of the fortress and outposts on the
    southern end of the border.  The two outposts and the Kwafi army will take out
    the first Burkeneji groups lured to the north.

    if necessary and take out the 2 docks.  Once docks are being damaged, stop
    building navy. Completely raze Eco-pirates coastline.
    
    21. Send Navy to sweep sea for any straggling Eco-pirates then scuttle the
    ships to gain back the population costs.  Build a few naval transports to
    transport a small army to finish off the Eco-pirates buildings.
    
        22. Return army to Nakuru and scuttle naval transports to max out army.
    
    23. Invade NE and slowing take down defenses on perimeter of stronghold,
    then finish them off.

    [5.4.2] Battlefield Intelligence
    --------------------------------
    Small map in a clock-wise spiral with the river and mountains blocking land
    access to center without going around. Burkeneji control everything initially.
    * Resistance in Bokhol Plain and Moyale is not very heavy, but increase
    farther along the spiral.
      * Burkeneji have stronghold in center of area.
      * Globo Corp have military production in the SE area.
      * Key CPs: #1: Moyale-Mande border
                 #2: Mande-Lanu border
    
    [5.4.3] Course of Actions
    -------------------------
    1.  Organize initial military units and form armies with heroes, and start
    some unit upgrades.
    
    2.  Push North and raze buildings in Bokhol Plain, keep helicopter hero
    back to prevent loss from SAMs.

    sabotage the fortress migh help eliminate heavy losses letting heavy artillery
    concentrate on the military production buildings instead.
    
    11. Keep reinforcements and rally points heading to the front to provide
    fresh troops as fast as possible.  Only need 4 mobile SAMs to protect the army
    from initial air attacks.  Build helo group to replace armor for quick reaction
    to cover tactical withdrawls and destroy enemy counter-attacks.  Armor gets
    bogged down in the close quarters.
    
        12. Build a few SAMs to protect Moyale from air attacks.
    
        13. Continue upgrading units.

      Primary: Claim Nairobi
               Remove Globo Corp's Influence in Kenya
      Secondary: Free the Sanbura
                 Protect the Kwafi
                 Protect the Kalenjin
    
    [5.5.2] Battlefield Intelligence
    --------------------------------
    Large map combining the previous 2 scenarios.  Road already connects the NE
    corner area to allied territories in the West.
    * Nairobi is enclosed with plasma walls and many towers providing heavy
    defense, many outposts and SAM defenses are just inside the gates as well.
    Globo Corp has an inner compound with 2 fortresses in the central southern
    area.  To the East, Embu is initially Burkeneji controlled but without
    buildings.
    * Globo Corp is also in the SE corner and they have an electric fence to
    protect Malindi.
    * Namanga is walled in with an electric fence and a gate to allow Burkeneji
    to enter from the eastern side.  It is protected with some defenses and
    military production.  It is also under protection of the towers along Nairobi's
    western wall.
      * Key CPs: #1: Wajir gap on border with Garsen
                 #2: Gap in West Kitui and East of brdige to Garsen
                 #3: Gap between trees and ridge in Meru with uranium deposit
                 #4: Area North of gate in NE Namanga
    
    [5.5.3] Course of Actions
    -------------------------
    1.  Reorganize resource gathering efforts and build more citizens to
    balance resources.  No Tech Points can be gathered, but are awarded from
    Lasitech and Epoch 15 can be reached.
    
    2.  Organize initial military units and set rally points and start training
    reinforcements.  Londiam's military units defend CP#4.  Initially armor units
    defend CP#3 and new helo quick reaction force assembles there as well.  Small
    infantry army with SAM support pushes to CP#2 to cover and defend.  Main army
    with the heavy artillery assmeble at CP#1.  Can build a 4th small army to
    defend CP#3 once armor is destroyed.
    
    3.  Initial military operations are a small Burkeneji force goes into CP#3
    and the Kwafi army attacks the NE gate of Namanga.
    
        4.  Use 2-3 build teams to claim territories and build defenses at CPs#2-4.
    
    5.  Use air force in the East.  Tactical bombers can prevent enemy build up
    in Embu and use of the resources.  The strategic bombers can make surgical
    strikes on defenses.  A few more planes are need to replace losses and make the
    strikes more effective.
    
    6.  Send a citizen to build an oil derrick in NE Isiolo and the garrison to
    increase oil gathering.
    
    7.  Build city center just NW of gold in Kitui and set a few more citizen
    to increase gold collection.  Follow up with a few SAMs and defenses out of
    range of Nairobi towers.
    
    8.  Build city center near Behrinium deposit in Nakuru and defenses North
    of Namanga and along Kericho border.
    
    9.  Claim Meru with a city center NE of CP#3, but close as possible to help
    heal defensive force.  Follow up with defenses.
    
    10. Strategic bombers carefully take down SAM defense in Garsen, healing
    the bombers after each run.  Follow up destruction of fortress and outposts as
    well.  Once nuclear bombers are available replace bomber losses with them
    instead, only 3 will be needed to successfully continue surgical strikes.
    
        11. Build extractors on Behrinium deposits in Nakuru, Meru, and Kitui.
    
    12. Move main army across border to help cover again Globo Corp
    counter-attack across bridge into Kitui.
    
        13. Upgrade units when possible.
    
    14. Gain supreme strategist and make it the new Military Leader and attach
    to main army.
    
    15. Once defenses are reduced in Garsen, follow with main army to destroy
    buildings.

    force at CP#4 to create the western army with heavy artillery support to invade
    Namaga.  Free Sanbura and pull back to CP#4.
    
    18. Heavy artillery can take out ground defenses of Malindi from outside,
    while eastern army destroys any counter-attacks that come out of the gate.

    I personally enjoy playing the campaigns in games like EE2 more than the
    skirmishes or multi-player.  I made this guide and walk-through while
    completing my first and only run through on moderate difficulty.  I did however
    restart most scenarios after a trial start to get feel for the courses of
    action I wanted to take from the beginning and eliminate the wasted actions I
    made.
    
    I tried the turning point scenarios and was able to win the first one,
    Rorke's Drift form the British side.  But I had no chance in winning from the
    Zulu side.  I tried three times without coming close and decided the effort to
    figure out a creative method was not worth my time.  After that I did not even
    bother with The Battle of Kursk.
    
    If anyone actually uses this guide and has some updated ideas or
    constructive improvements I don't mind if you email them to my address at the
    top of the guide.  Please include EE2 in the subject line.
