A campaign is basically a series of linked battles that are given more context and significance by the fact that the outcomes of the battles are critical to overall success in achieving geographic, strategic and/or political objectives. In a campaign the players have their objectives laid out on a map and must maneuver their forces to capture those objectives. The map may encompass a continent, region or smaller area depending on the scope of the campaign. Each move and each battle is part of a larger contest and its outcome determines the opportunities and challenges that arise as the campaign unfolds. Preserving a battlegroup for the next battle is usually just as important as winning the current battle.
