THE SUN OF AUSTERLITZ
Napoleon's campaign in Moravia 1805
Components: One 22 x 34" map, 280 counters, 20 pages of rules, 7 player aid charts for setup and organization displays. November-December 1805.
Map covers the territory from Znaim and Brunn to Olmutz and Ostrava, with the regular 2 miles to the hex. And it can mate with the "1809" map (Victory Games), allowing for a precession of the campaign through Durrenstein and Znaim.
The campaign scenario begins on 15 November, with the Russians retiring on Brünn and the French in pursuit. A second scenario begins with the French spread out around Brünn and the Coalition forces in Olmütz. Fortunately for Napoleon, the Allies attacked, but what if they had not? With the imminent entry of Prussia into the war, Napoleon would have been forced to advance on Olmütz, and his forces would have been beyond their LOC.
