Good news Generals, the first weekend at the Wargames Holiday Centre has sold out! (Don’t worry, this happens regularly with our popular Battles, that’s why we run two of each in the year.)
British Cavalry Commander of the 1st Cavalry Brigade, Major General Somerset
So we figured that as this is the first one at the new Wargames Holiday Centre and it’s one of our favourite Napoleonic battles we’d do something special to share it with all those who couldn’t get a place.
A squadron of Uhlans from the Duke of Brunswicks contingent
So, how can you make something like this special? Well how about inviting all the people who are genuinely interested in the Battle or the period along to share the experience. Great!! How’d you do it though, it might be a large venue, but think of the sandwiches we’ll need!
A Commander of the British 1st Division Major General Sir George Cook
Nope that would not do.
So my friends at Jupiter Colour came up with a fantastic idea, lets post the event…..LIVE! That means throughout the battle there will be regular updates, from Hougomont to Plancenoit, the movement of the troops will be relayed live to this website.
A British Line infantry regiment
You will now be able to check on the progress of the French attacking the Chateau of Hougomont, or the allied defenders of La Haye Sainte. There will be progress reports of how the Prussians are progressing. What forces are diverted to stop them, will Grouchy take the initiative and arrive at the field of battle? If he does, what about the remaining Prussian Corps?
It’ll be all to play for!
Don’t forget to tune in.
