Strategy undertaken on the nation scale. Usually used by military officers from Brigadier General (or country equivalent) rank and up. Can also be a hobby, where enthusiasts are nicknamed "armchair general" and play Wargames. Finally, a sub-genre of strategy games.

Nations that have a centralized command doctrine usually place grand strategy over squad tactics.
1. "Recon has sighted Taliban infantry to the east of here, so we'll send 23rd division here and flank them with 29th division, located here." - General using grand strategy
2. "Did polish lancers really charge at German panzerkampfwagen?" -Armchair General magazine
3. "Fucking comet sighted!" - average Europa Universalis III player
