Campaign Jena-Auerstedt



Overview

In 1806, Napoleon took to the field against the Kingdom of Prussia, a saber-rattling Queen, and several proud generals still clinging to a past of glory under Frederick the Great. In less than two weeks of campaigning the French were masters of Prussia and eastern Germany. Can you repeat the historical performance of Napoleon and his army, or as the Prussians will you inflict a stinging defeat upon the French?
