From the back of the box:
Borodino, 60 miles west of Moscow, is considered the turning point of Napoleon’s fortunes. Napoleon had the chance to crush the Russian army at Borodino, thus winning the war. Yet, instead of pursuing, surrounding, and finishing the retreating Russians, he went soft and let them escape. Once they had mended their crippled battalions the Russians took up the attack and, with the aid of a blistering winter, drove the Little Emperor back across Europe.
NAPOLEON IN RUSSIA is a scenario of what might have been. You can either play Napoleon’s Borodino plan or devise your own. Game features include command over infantry, cavalry, and artillery divisions; scrolling battle map with prominent terrain; and several options covering fatigue, morale levels, battle speed, difficulty modes, and player selections (two player or player against computer).
Authenticity makes this game extremely intriguing. The map is based on the original 1839 Russian Military re-enactment of the battle and on photographs commissioned by Tsar Nicholas to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the action.
You can hone your cutlass on short skirmishes or charge into the entire 3-day Borodino campaign. Tactical hints and combat variations will keep you on the battlefield for hours.
