NAPOLEONIC WAR GAMING
AT ITS VERY BEST
In 1807, after
Napoleon defeated Prussia, the Prussian army under Count Bennigsen advanced
West in attempt to regain some of Prussiaís lost land and put an end to
Napoleonís conquest. On February the 8th Napoleon, with 78,000 men under
his command, met Bennigsen, with 83,000 men, before the town of Eylau.
The ensuing battle, fought in a blizzard, was a desperate slogging match,
ending only marginally in favour of Napoleon. Losses were extremely heavy
on both sides, with the French losing 25,000 troops and the Prussians 15,000.
