For winning as each civilization, you can use the following strategy that I found since it is probably the quickest method (takes about 10-20 minutes for each civilization).

First choose the Art of War scenario on Chieftain difficulty (the easiest one). In Art of War, you start with all available units. After selecting this scenario choose which civilization you want to play as. Your ultimate goal in this scenario is to be the first civilization to take over and be in control of 4 enemy capitals.

Upon starting, you will be a settler unit which looks like a wagon. Your first plan of action should be finding a good spot to build your town. Try to find an area that has a good balance of the three symbols that appear. However you can try getting more of the hammer symbols if you want faster production but I will get into that next.

Once your town is built, press the shield icon on any and all units. This is just so the game doesn't prompt you to go thru each unit and then end turn which takes alot longer. As you look at your town, you will notice a blue bar filling up turn by turn. Basically when it fills all the way up, a unit such as a tank will be produced on the same square as your town. To do this, click on your town and then click.on the upper left icon which brings up a list which of the units you can produce. Select tank (keep in mind the name may change for different civilizations but it's always in the same spot on list). Remember once the blue bar fills, the tank will be ready.

Now that you have your first tank, don't get too excited because we will soon be making a tank army! A tank army is when three tank units occupy the same square on the map and can be combined together into an army. Therefore, your next step is to simply keep skipping turns until you have three tanks on the same spot. You can click on it and see the tanks individually on the left sidebar. You will notice a new icon on right. Click it to merge the three tanks and create a tank army.

Once you have your tank army, this one unit will be sufficient to take over all towns. Start moving your tank around looking for colorized portions of the map. These indicate an enemy capital. Once in that section, move adjacent to the town. Click on it and you will be given option to attack. Keep in mind you may need to battle more than one group of enemies for the town but the tank army can easily handle it. Keep doing this for all 4 enemy capitals and victory should be yours. However, sometimes the town is on an island so you will obviously need some form of water transportation to get there...

I recommend the cruiser unit. Switch your towns production to this after making your tank army. Move your tank army onto the cruiser ship. Then move the ship next to the island and move your tank onto the island. Once your tank is back on land, you know the drill.

That is pretty much the premise - Obliterate everything with your tank army. That is why this Art of War scenario is the ideal one for winning games quickly since in other scenarios you can't access the tank until late in the game.

All credit goes to thirtysmooth the owner of the walkthrough, but in case you missed it, I've posted it below. This is by far the least button press intensive and quickest way of doing it with every leader.

Instead of selecting ‘Random Map’ from the Game Mode menu, select ‘Play a Scenario’, then ‘Lightning Round’. In this mode you have to be the first to research the ‘Atomic Theory’ technology before anyone else, and it starts the game in the Medieval era. After selecting your civilization and difficulty (Chieftain of course), you’ll enter the game with three cities already built.

I would suggest building three defensive units, and forming an army, in each of the cities so as to protect yourself from any incoming attacks. Once this is done, go into each city’s Control Screen and press on the ‘City Focus’ icon (bottom right of the screen, the icon depicts an apple, gold bullions, blue beaker and a hammer). Once there, press on the blue beaker at the bottom. This will set the city’s focus to produce science. The reason you want to do this is because it will aid in the speed in which you research technologies.

After setting up each city’s focus, you’ll want to add extra firepower to your researching abilities. Building Libraries and Universities add science benefits to each city, so after researching the relevant technologies, focus on building these.

You’ll no doubt attract the interest of neighbouring civilizations who will want all of your cities and, more importantly, your beloved research. They will be relentless in their attacks on your cities, but for the most-part they will only attack you with weak units which your defensive armies will easily be able to withstand. Don’t worry about building offensive military units, unless you feel especially threatened by any of the incoming attacks.

Now, you’re probably wondering which is the quickest research route to take when aiming for ‘Atmoic Theory’. You could make your brain hurt and work it out for yourself using the information in the ‘Hints and Tips’ section of this walkthrough, or you could use the following list (thanks to Musquito for the help with this list):

Iron Working**
Code of Laws
Steam Power
Atomic Theory

* only the Mongols and the Americans require this technology.
** only the French and the Russians require this technology.

Once you have researched Democracy, change your government to this as it will add +50% to science which will increase your speed in researching technologies.

It should now be a case of repelling any attacks made by the other civilizations and racing to be the first to research Atomic Theory. Once you have, depending on which civilization you chose to play as, you’ll earn the below achievements. Using this method takes between 15-30 minutes, depending on how vicious the other civilizations are towards you.

I thought it was fairly fast and easy to just pick a random map, use your first warrior to explore and find all the capitals you can, meanwhile research the fastest tech always choosing military tech if you have two to choose from, get monarchy quick as well to produce more gold to rush items. As soon as you can build catapults, build your first catapult army and send it off to obliterate capitals. You can build another as backup. Any other units you get should go towards defending your towns.
This is a fairly quick way to change up the battle tactics anyway.
I love the Civ series, and if you liked it and want more easy achievements you can get the 360 version as well.

Hope this is helpful.
