Description from the packaging.

Reconstruct any Napoleonic battle from the pages of history... or your imagination!

Battles of Napoleon allows you to simulate practically any Napoleonic engagement on a detailed, tactical level. How? By giving you all the tools to create any battle of that historical era.

Battles of Napoleon is a superb advanced wargame- and a full-blown construction set.

Use the computer to generate random maps, then modify them as you choose. Or start from scratch by building your own maps, square-by-square (each representing 100 yards). Your terrain options include five levels of elevation, woods, roads, fields, swamps, water, towns and redoubts. Create your own armies provided to suit your exact specifications: number of men, type of units, weapons and nationality. Rate your units for melee strength, leadership and morale.

The construction-set feature enables you to change game parameters such as the weapons tables, fire/terrain modifiers, and other important values. You can literally make any game that you can imagine!

Want to bypass the design phase and jump right into action? Simply choose from the many pre-made scenarios, such as Waterloo, Quatre Bras, Auerstaedt and Borodino.

If you idea of fun involves skirmishers, cavalry charges and infantry squares, look no further than Battles of Napoleon!

  • Each square on the map represents 100 yards.
  • Use the construction-set features to change game parameters such as weapons tables, fire/terrain modifiers, and other important values in the game.

  • Design your own battles with a powerful editor that allows you to make maps and armies with a variety of command structures and sizes.
