Description

The Battle of Borodino, fought on September 7, 1812, was the largest and bloodiest single-day action of the French invasion of Russia, involving more than 250,000 troops and resulting in at least 70,000 casualties. The French Grande Armee under Emperor Napoleon I attacked the Imperial Russian Army of General Mikhail Kutuzov near the village of Borodino, west of the town of Mozhaysk, and eventually captured the main positions on the battlefield, but failed to destroy the Russian army. About a 3rd of Napoleon's soldiers were killed or wounded, Russian losses, while heavier, could be replaced due to Russia's larger population.

The battle at Borodino was a pivotal point in the campaign, as it was the last offensive action fought by Napoleon in Russia. By withdrawing, the Russian army preserved its combat strength, which eventually allowed them to force Napoleon out of the country.

Game allows to play either side and decide about the fate of Napoleon and his conquer of Russia.
