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 are on a CD for easy play and reference.
Furthermore, an additional game is included with a brand new system at no additional charge—Le Siege de Danzig 1807. Danzig, a Hanseatic city with a treasured history, was stubbornly held by Fourth Coalition forces and besieged by Marshal Lefebvre. Danzig needed to fall to secure the French rear before taking on the bulk of the Russian army. Le Siege de Danzig 1807 recreates the nearly 3 month siege with a brand new game system which requires management of limited resources by both sides.
