1814 Campaign Battle of Sezanne

The first major battle of our 1814 Campaign took place just outside Sezanne, troops were arriving throughout the day but the battle itself didn’t start until late afternoon. With little time to gain a victory the cautious French pushed forward too slowly to crush the Allies in front of them and the commander decided that they ‘should wait for more troops to turn up’ and the battle petered out towards nightfall. The scene is set for a much larger battle the next day.

It is interesting to see the difference between a campaign battle and a one off scenario. Players are far less willing to throw troops forward and simply hope for the best!
