Consistently rated in the top 100 war games on board game geek over the last decade, Pursuit of Glory was a 2009 Golden Geek Best War Game Nominee.

Pursuit of Glory is a stand-alone sequel to Paths of Glory, a card-driven strategy game covering the first World War. Unlike the original game, which focused on the European theater of World War I, Pursuit of Glory focuses entirely on the Great War in the Middle East. Pursuit of Glory uses the same card-driven mechanics and point-to-point of the first game, but with some rules changes and modifications to better simulate the conditions of the war in the Middle East.
It was designed by Brad and Brian Stock with the permission of Ted Raicer, the designer of the original Paths of Glory.
