Borodino

Box Cover 50Kb

Using the very popular Triumph & Glory game system (v2.2), Volume II in the T&G series covers the classic Napoleonic battle, Borodino, Battle of the Moskova, 1812. The battle itself will be familiar to almost every wargamer, with massive French and Russian armies coming together in a frontal, head-to-head assault that used little, or no, subtlety. There are massive batteries of artillery, huge divisions of cavalry, Cossacks all over the place, plust there is political in-fighting within the Russian command hierarchy.

The games brigade-level order of battle includes the latest historical research, and we have even given the French player an opportunity – fraught with danger – to attempt to undertake French Marshal Davout's suggested flanking maneuver. In addition to the full Borodino battle of September 7th, the game also includes a short, Introductory Mini-Battle, the Attack on the Schevardino Redoubt (which took place on September 5th, two days before the actual battle). Historically, the French finally took the position with high losses to both sides but, remarkably, with not one Russian prisoner. A portent of things to come.
