Synopsis

Synopsis

This Field of Glory Napoleonic companion gives players everything they need to recreate the French Revolutionary wars and the rise of Napoleon through to the campaigns of the Grande Armée and the early Empire. In 1789, the French Revolution acted as the spark that ignited the volatile powder keg of Europe, pitching the continent into a conflagration of war and bloodshed that would last for decades. Amidst this chaos rose Napoleon Bonaparte, under whose influence France would become a dominant power, controlling, directly or indirectly, the majority of Europe.  Emperors and Eagles also includes full army lists for the Peninsular Wars, where Britain and its Portuguese and Spanish allies slowly, but surely, turned the tide of the war and pushed Napoleon's forces back to their own borders.

"...a companion for Field of Glory: Napoleonic. Readers of this predecessor will find the sequel gives players all the details needed to recreate the French Revolutionary wars and document the rise of Napoleon, making for a powerful, provocative wargaming strategy reference."
- James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review

"...this is an informative companion volume to the historical miniature wargaming rules system outlined in Field of Glory Napoleonic. These books arm tabletop generals with the knowledge needed to re-create battles of the French Revolutionary Wars and the Napoleonic Wars. Color illustrations by Peter Dennis and photos of military miniatures breathe life into the coauthors’ account of how the 1789 French Revolution ignited a powder keg that hurled Europe into decades of warfare."
- Toy Soldier & Model Figure (May 2013)

"...an excellent addition to the gamers' library, and one that they should be referencing often."
- Richard Mataka, www.mataka.org
