Product Description

Theme:      Franco-Prussian War     

Wissembourg and Spicheren simulate two battles from the beginning of the war of 1870. They jeopardise the French army’s organisation and the morale of the command, key factors in the management of the war. The imperial army would never regain its initial spirit, ultimately leading to its defeat. These games are the third in the series “Les Grandes Batailles de Napoléon III» that use the same mechanisms to reproduce diverse battles of the period 1854-1870: the campaigns of Crimea, Italy, Mexico and the war of 1870. There have been no modifications from the version of the battles of Magenta and Reichshoffen aside from the arrival of reinforcements. There have only been some adaptations made for the various scenarios.
