Battle of Mincio River (Northern Italy) Feb 8 1814 CLS Napoleonics 26 foot table

Battle of Mincio River (Northern Italy) Feb 8 1814
Excellent game OBs available as well








Here a few pics the Napoleonics organizer sent me from the convention held in Jacksonville Florida this past Saturday June 5th 2010. I understand they had 16 - 18 players for this battle of 1814 in Italy as Austrians attack Italians and French Allies - 4 villages and one wooded area comprise the majority of the terrain.
A historical recount of the battle can be found in "The defense of the Napoleonic kingdom of Northern Italy, 1813-1814" By George F. Nafziger, Marco Gioannini published in 2002 by Praeger publishers. From my brief read of it it has some excellent scenario ideas including British troops landing in Italy
