The most important engagement during the time of the Fifth Coalition, take the Grande Armee, their German and Italian allies and decide on the best strategy. Defeat the Austrian army of Archduke Charles and bring the war to an end. One of the largest battles for the Austrians during the Napoleonic wars, their attempted double envelopment nearly succeeded, until the French re-deployment. The massed Grand Battery finally drove the Archdukes army into retreat. Will you succeed where the Archduke failed? Change the deployment, re-invent the strategy and march to victory! Or will you smash the Austrian army once and for all as one of the Marshals of France? Oudinot, Bernadotte, Soult, Davout or Massena.

Another one of the fantastic General de Brigade weekends. We’ll be using the o.o.b. edited by Mr DCR Brown and using the latest issue of his fantastic ruleset.
