Here is a 31-minute video of Alpha gameplay from the newly released Skirmish mode in War of Rights. This footage was taken during the Community Line Battle Event on the 5th of July, 2017.

With officers and soldiers in tow, both Confederate and Union troops repeatedly met upon the field of battle below Dunker Church to the sound of musketry, artillery, and the screams of the wounded in order to ascertain a victor for the day. Who will win the day? You be the judge and let me ...

While many migrants move voluntarily – perhaps looking for economic opportunities or better living conditions – others do not have a choice. More and more people are forced to flee their homes and communities because of factors such as conflicts, insecurity, disaster or poverty. Many migrants succeed in establishing themselves in their new communities, but others face abuses and discrimination; and these are of primary concern for National Red Cross Red Crescent Societies and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. As migration is a global phenomenon, partnerships with government and non–governmental agencies, migrant groups and host communities and our National Society network, are essential alon...
