The Jours de Gloire (Days of Glory) series is dedicated to Napoleon's victories and to their 200th anniversary celebrations.
The original rules were the result of a close collaboration with Richard H. Berg in 1997 (Victory rules that became Glory! for ACW and Triumph & Glory for Napoleonic) and with Marc Bransdma (French adaptation). Jours de Gloire has now been living on its own for several years, capitalizing on the experience of 2985 games played in tournament during the yearly Trophée du Bicentenaire.
