Men of War (Russian: В тылу врага 2: Лис пустыни, or Behind Enemy Lines 2: Desert Fox) is a 2009 real-time strategy video game. Players issue orders to and/or take direct control of soldiers on a simulation-driven battlefield.

The game takes place during World War II (with the exception of the Vietnam expansion pack) and features battles set in Europe, the Soviet Union, Crete, and North Africa across three different campaigns for the Americans, Germans and Soviets. The Empire of Japan was later introduced as a multiplayer faction in a patch.

On November 1, 2009, a sequel called Men of War: Red Tide (Russian: "Черные бушлаты") was released, featuring missions centered on the Soviet Naval Infantry of the Black Sea Fleet, in addition to adding the arsenals of two more countries, Italy and Romania. This game notably featured no multiplayer or editor.

On February 25, 2011, a stand-alone expansion pack called Men of War: Assault Squad was released, featuring more small arms and high quality weapon models. The expansion pack focused on the multiplayer and infantry combat aspects of the game more.

On September 9, 2011, another stand-alone expansion called Men of War: Vietnam was released, featuring 2 campaigns focused on the Vietnam War (of the Vietcong and their Russian Advisors, and American Forces respectively) and featuring Vietnam War-era weapons.

On April 12, 2012, a sequel called Men of War: Condemned Heroes was released, featuring several campaigns focusing on the infamous Soviet "Penal battalions" and high quality human models.

It is not to be confused with the Perry Lang's action film Men of War.

The following weapons appear in the video game Men of War:
