People's General WW2. Short just PeG-WW2, is a conversion that allows owners of both People's General and Panzer General II to play all scenarios and campaigns found in Panzer General II, using the superior gaming engine of People's General.



People's General was released in 1998. It followed the successful 5 Star General Series (Panzer General, Allied General, Pacific General) and built on the same game engine as Panzer General II. However, PeG moved the focus from World War II to early 21st century combat.

While players were enthusiastic about the new features in PeG compared with PG2 several wanted also a World War II war-game.

In 1999 Mark Kirby along with Fred Chlanda created PeG-WW2. They used the PeG game engine (PEOPLES.EXE) but added a WW2 focused equipment file and WW2 icons. Mark also modified the GUI and DAT file to provide a text and graphics interface that is distinct from PeG.

In 2004 Robert Mary began converting PG2 campaigns to PeG-WW2 and the game executable has been modified by Redball. The result has been an success. Robert's website now contains more than 45 PeG-WW2 campaigns including:

PeG-WW2 icons and related files are also available on Robert's site.

Also in 2004 Redball created a modified PeG specific to PeG-WW2, PeG-WW2 2.7e. Although many features of the latest modified version of PeG (2.7a) are included, there are also some features unique to the WW2 version.

In 2005 Dragdasan created the PeG-WW2 Installer setup (that makes easy the installing of the PeG-WW2) available at Robert Mary's site or at 5 Star Panzer General site. This installer includes a PeG-WW2 introduction movie sequence released by Dragdasan too. The game includes many gamesets (tailor-made exe files -all based on Redball's PeG-WW2 2.7e exe file- referring to different splashpages, leadersets, medalsets, ...) depending on the chosen theatre of operations (Western Front, Eastern Front, Pacific Front, ...). All Splashpages have been designed by Dragdasan.

In 2005 Robert with a little help of his friends also created two other mods for People's General:

People's General WWI Edit

with the following campaigns:

  • German Ostfront and Freikorps (1916-1919) v 1.0
  • Schlieffen Plan (1914) v 5.0

People's General Napoleonic Edit

with the following campaigns:

  • Austerlitz (1805-1815) v 2.0
  • Campaign in Egypt (1798-1799) v 2.0
  • Waterloo (1815) campaign v 1.0
  • Campaign in Russia (1812) v 1.0

Dragdasan also created an installer programme as well as interface files for PeG-Napoleonic.

People's General American Civil War Edit

with the following campaigns:

  • Stonewall Jackson's War (1862-1863) v 3.0
  • From Antietam to Appomatox (1862-1865) v 1.0

Dragdasan designed the interface files for this mod as he did for PeG-Napoleonic. PeG-ACW is a variant of PeG-Napoleonic and uses the same DAT file to store unit icons.
