The Eagle and the Bear

Neil Smith provides the background behind the French Emperor’s decision to march an army across his Empire,
and then as far again into the teeth of the “Russian Bear”, where normal expectations were thrown out of the window.

Borodino, 1812

When the Russian army finally turned to give fight to the invading French, it was near a small town called Borodino. Bill Gray will show that curious decisions and fractious subordinates would mean that the although the invaders took the field and then Moscow, there would be no victory in sight for Napoleon.

Bayonets and Blades

Regular contributor Barry Hilton just happened to run a
“Borodino” weekender earlier this year. Here he presents the Republic to Empire scenario used, along with a report of the action on the “Fleches” table and lots of great photos.

The Bear and the Eagle

In the theme conclusion, Neil Smith follows Napoleon’s army back to the Empire, harrying its flanks like a determined Cossack horseman. We learn that it wasn’t all “General Winter” that Europe had to thank for the destruction of the Grande Armee.

Hell at Cassino Part 2

‘Infantry Aces’ campaign rules. Here is the conclusion.
