Description

The battle of Albuera (May 16, 1811) has gone down in history as the bloodiest battle of the Napoleonic Peninsular War. Marshall Soult thought he could roll up an allied Spanish, British, and Portuguese force and claim a decisive French victory. He was wrong. A clever flank attack was stopped dead by some of the best Spanish troops of the war. Then, despite a devastating charge by his fearsome Plich Lancers, the Allies still held firm.

Lines of Battle is an exciting new war game series, of which Albuera 1811 is the first game. It features a fresh take on Napoleonic gaming where the essence of the Napoleonic combat is distilled into an enjoyable and interactive battle experience – you can feint, outflank, form square, charge with cavalry, bombard, withdraw – it’s all there.

As well as the historical battle scenario, Albuera 1811 contains optional rules for Leaders (counters included), and you can construct any number of scenarios based on a combination of “what if” optional rules. Typical game time is about 90 minutes.
