La Bataille de Friedland 1807

New from Marshal Enterprises. La Bataille de Friedland 1807 recreates on a grand scale the classic contest between Imperial France and the Fourth Coalition fought on 14 June 1807.

Marshal Enterprises, which published La Bataille de Leipzig 1813 in October 2013 and designed La Bataille de Vauchamps published in ATO Magazine earlier in 2014, releases this latest in the series of the La Bataille system with a masterful recreation of one of Napoleon’s most misunderstood victories.

In 1807, Napoleon had just spent the last eight months fighting both the Prussians and the Russians throughout Prussia and Poland in the toughest fighting the French had faced up until that time during Napoleon’s rule. The Russians were led by General Levin August von Bennigsen, the crafty Hanoverian in Russian service, who had fought Napoleon virtually to a draw in February 1807 at Eylau; and then in June, just few days earlier prior to the climactic battle at Friedland, Bennigsen had punished the French with huge losses at Heilsberg, setting the stage for the major battle of 1807. The Russians had proven themselves to be the most stubborn foes Napoleon had faced. The battle at Friedland would only reinforce that perception.

La Bataille de Friedland 1807 includes 4 full color maps and over a 1000 counters. Along with the many organizational charts and player guides, the Premier Rules; the Special Game Rules; Orders of Battle; and many special editorial features will be on a CD for easy play and reference. The main battle is accompanied with multiple scenarios and features 4 maps. 4 countersheets, 2 informational counter sheets, organizational charts and instructional / informational CD. Also included is the revolutionary Le Siege de Danzig, a complete game in and of itself. Only 400 copies of this game are being printed, so get yours today! Price: $150 [order here].

La Bataille de Wiederitzsch, 1813

New from Marshal EnterprisesLa Bataille de Wiederitzsch, 1813 is a free, print-n-play La Bataille series game that combines with La Bataille de Moeckern, 1813 which recreates the desperate battle between Poles and the Russians in the Leipzig cycle of battles on October 16, 1813 at the twin villages of Gross Wiederitzsch and Klein Wiederitzsch near the Saxon city of Leipzig. This entry is part of the “Recession Series” available as free downloads in covering a series of lesser-known corps-on-corps battles from both the Wars of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars.

La Bataille de Mockern, 1813

New from Marshal EnterprisesLa Bataille de Mockern, 1813 covers the key battle at the northern end of the sprawling battlefield that is know as the Battle of Nations.

The French are charged with stopping the allied Army of Silesia from coming to the aid of the Army of Bohemia in the South. It was a bitter battle, with artillery duels and cavalry charges a plenty to make it an evenly matched contest.

Part of their print ‘n play Recession Game series, this game is available as a FREE download.
