In celebrating the 199th Anniversary of La Bataille de Leipzig (often called the Battle of Nations), Marshal Enterprises announces plans to release La Bataille de Leipzig 1813 this Fall. The game will recreate the vast southern portions of La Bataille de Leipzig on October 16, 1813 in which Napoleon fought desperately to defend his Confederation of the Rhine from the combined forces of the Sixth Coalition (Austria; Prussia; Russia and assorted German states); whose Albion-oiled noose was poised to strangle the last vestiges of the French Revolution from Europe.
There are four 22 X 34 four-color maps with such Saxon towns and villages as Wachau; Markleesberg; Liebertwolkwitz; Auenhain and Gulden-Gossa, which were the scenes of much fierce fighting in the Battle of Nations. The forces are represented by over 1200 four-color counters and 300 informational markers. The new game, which will be published for sale to the public prior to the bicentennial of the Battle of Leipzig in October 2013, will be the first for ME to be sold directly to the wargaming community since the 1980’s. This will be a one-time, limited print run of 499 copies when published, and there will be no reprint offered. Preorder information coming soon! [related story]
