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.
