    Some Italian Generals in WW2 (more appropriate than Graziani...):
    gen. Adolfo Infante - "Enemy tanks rush behind Ariete. Thus Ariete surrounded. Ariete tanks fighting."
    gen. Enrico Frattini - Folgore!
    gen. Gabriele Nasci - 100.000 ice mess tins

    Being Italian generals in WW2, we're not talking of winners, of course.
    But I think that a little explanation on why I chose these three is due.

    Gen. Infante, commander of armoured division Ariete at El Alamein; what I quoted is the last message from his HQ, before the total annihilation of the division.

    Gen. Frattini, commander of the paratroopers division Folgore. His 5.900 men resisted for a week on the southern edge of the El Alamein front the attack by four infantry and two armoured divisions, until they were ordered to retreat. During the retreat the survivors went out of ammunition and water, and finally all the 294 of them were captured.

    Gen. Nasci, commander of the Alpine Corps in Russia. In January 1943 his three divisions were still holding their positions on river Don, whilst the rest of the front had been smashed by the Russian Operation Saturn. On the 17th, surrounded, they were finally ordered to retreat to the new front line; they put their 75mm WW1 howitzers (the only heavy armament they had, being mountain troops) on the sledges and left their trenches. After two weeks marching by feet in the Russian winter, opening their way through some 25 battles, nearly 11.000 of the originally 51.000 Alpini reached the friend lines.

    Are the GP going to be country/culture specific?

    I've seen Germany get Patton as a GG twice which I thought was pretty funny.

    I have not played the mod yet, so I don't know if they're in already or something, but both Howard Hughes and Henry Ford could have a case made for them.

    Did you have Erwin Rommel up in Generals.
    Probably the most famous Nazi General.

    Ferdinand Porsche - He could also be put as a Merchant. He founded the companies Porsche, and later Volkswagen at the following of Hitler. He also helped design and manufacture several tanks used by the Wehrmacht.


    Ernst Hanfstaengl - He was a wealthy patron of Hitler, who helped Hitler get to the spot of Fuhrer. He later deserted the Germans, and fled. He later served Franklin Roosevelt by giving information on the Nazi Regime.


    Tomoyuki Yama****a - Known as the Tiger of Malay. A Brilliant Strategist and General who captured both Malaysia and the heavily defended Singapore, which was the largest surrender of British-led personnel in history, he also played a hand a conquering the Philippines. Unjustly sentenced to death in 1946.

    I've checked out Gaius Octavius's civ-specific GP's, and quite frankly it would be a nightmare for this mod. Each civ requires a separate UU to initiate for each GP type. That's 30-odd civs each with UU's for each GP type. :eek:

    Until a better solution is made, that's not gunna happen sorry.

    I'm not sure if any of these have been used yet, but how about:
    • Werner von Braun - Engineer or Scientist
    • Werner Heisenberg - Scientist
    • Hjalmar Siilasvuo (sort of obscure, but not only did he decisively win every major battle he participated in, but he also, near the end of the war, decisively defeated Germany) - General?

    How about the unitname modcomp I remember somewhere here. Just tweak it to check the civ, and then select the next free name?

    Could you please use real artists instead?

    It's a nice tribute, but this is supposed to be a historic simulation...

    A historical simulation is quite a different beast from a game based on history. A historical simulation places the emphasis on the historical aspect, as opposed to gameplay, where the two conflict. My personal feeling is that Dale is attempting to make a game, not a historical simulation (and IMO, Civ4 is a poor choice of a base for a historical simulation - it simply doesn't have the fine-grained control that would be required).

    Some Italian suggestions from a forgotten theater:


    Luigi Frusci: Defended Italian position in Sudan despite being cut off from supply line and ordered to withdraw to Eritrea. Last Italian regular army officer to mount defense in AOI.

    Amedeo Guillet: Famous horseman and cavalry commander, led relatively successful cavalry (ie: horses and sabers) charge against British forces, second last in history. He's also the only living person to have commanded cavalry forces in any war today.


    Rosa Dainelli: Italian doctor, infiltrated British ammunition stores and destroyed entire supply of prototype weaponry (some sort of heavy machinegun, forget model number) and ammo. Somehow survived the blast.

    Francesco De Martini: Became guerilla leader after fall of AOI, actively recruited natives to resist British forces and sabotage British positions.

    Apologies for organization on this; it's more or less organized as I thought of it.

    Robert Moses - Era-correct, though not really active during war for funding reasons, major highway builder in New York City.
    Leslie Groves - Coordinator for the atomic-bomb project.
    Walther Gropius - Inventor of the Bauhaus architectural school.
    Werner von Braun.
    Andrei Nikolayevich Tupolev
    Artem Mikoyan
    Mikhail Koshkin - Lead engineer on the T-34. Posthumously awarded Stalin Prize for his work.

    Alfried Krupp - The man who actually ran Krupp during the war.
    Gustav Krupp von Boehlen und Halbach - The titular head of the Krupp armaments dynasty during the '30s and '40s. Thoroughly senile by the '40s, but very influential in the '30s.
    Hjalmar H. G. Schacht - Hitler's finance minister, the man responsible for the first German economic miracle and the tie between Hitler and the bankers.
    David Rockefeller - The man behind Chase Manhattan.

    Claire Chennault - Commanded American volunteer pilots in China pre-war, re-commissioned Dec '41.
    William O. Darby - Only US general promoted posthumously in the war. Built, trained, and led Ranger organization in Europe until Cisterna in 1943. Certainly appropriate to give massive experience boost to a unit.
    James Gavin - Commander of the US 82nd Airborne, later XVIII Airborne Corps.
    Joseph Stilwell - US commander in Burma, analogous to William Slim, with many of the same qualities, minus humility and diplomacy.
    Maxwell Taylor - Commander of the US 101st Airborne, stayed in well into Vietnam.
    Lucian C. Truscott - US infantry divisional commander in Italy, moved up to Corps level. Like Bradley, a solid all-around commander.
    Orde Wingate - Arguably qualified British special-operations brain in Burma
    Willhelm Bittrich - Commander, 2e SS Panzerkorps during Market-Garden.
    Karl Doenitz - Commander, U-Boat Force.
    Adolf Galland - Commander, JG51 and eventually General der Jagdflieger. If you're including Goering...
    Gunther von Kluge - Von Rundstedt's replacement on the Western Front in '44.
    Hasso von Manteuffel - German armored commander and postwar politician. Overall commander of penetration that reached Meuse and encircled Bastogne in Dec '44.
    Erich Raeder - Commander, Kriegsmarine.
    Kurita Takeo - Commanded Japan's last remaining naval combat forces at Leyte Gulf.
    Nagumo Chuichi - Commanded Japan's carrier forces early in the war, led fleet at Midway.
    Yamamoto Isoroku - Surprised he isn't already listed.

    Wilhelm Canaris - Arguable on whether "great" or not, but head of the Abwehr.
    Reinhardt Heydrich - Head of the SS counterintelligence division, arguably Hitler's greatest overachiever.
    Otto Skorzeny - Most of the missions Skorzeny carried out were nowhere near militarily significant, but served some intelligence function. He was hardly a spymaster, though.
    William Donovan - Head of the OSS. Already in Civ4 personality list.
    J. Edgar Hoover - Head of the FBI. Already in personality list.

    Prophets and Propagandists:
    Joseph Goebbels
    Norman Rockwell
    Vyacheslav Molotov

    Niels Bohr
    Werner Heisenberg
