Introduction to the 1813 Campaign

Aim of the Campaign

This is a fictional campaign loosely based on the 1813 campaign.

The aim of the campaign is to produce good wargames for my wife Jan and I to wargame.   It will be fought as a PBEM campaign and will have command posts for ten players.   It is anticipated that we will play one campaign day each week.

Background of the 1813 Campaign in Germany and Spain

Napoleon suffered a major defeat in Russian in 1812, and has withdrawn his army to the river Rhine, leaving his Prussian and Austrian allies to hold the Russian army at the river Elbe, whilst he rebuilds the French Army.

In January 1813 the Russians, Austrians, Prussians, Spanish and English meet and agree in secret to attack Napoleon.

They agree on a general plan of campaign as follows
Austria, Prussia and Russia will attack the French in Germany
England and Spain will attack the French in Spain
