The Spanish army and navy go for a short Mediterranean cruise.


I believe it’s time for @Kolbex to launch his massive simultaneous invasions of Normandy, Brest, and Marsailles


Do I just take the file here in the thread and do it to it?



Go for it!


Massive is a very strong word :P

Land Phase, French Land Phase, Parte the Firste


In the middle of the French Move, we pause. Austria (@Matt_W), are you in or out in Mantua?

General Exposition



Austria has notified me she will be incommunicado until Tomorrow. We patiently wait.

General Exposition


Fieldmarshall Mack sees the French forces approaching the walls of Mantua, and then looks back over his shoulder at the fleches gracing the skyline of Mantua as it rises beyond its walls. He reluctantly turns his forces away from the assault and orders a retreat to the city.


March, 1805

Land Phase, French Land Phase, French Land Move, Parte the Laste

Austria (@Matt_W) in or out at Bologna? And what about that Depot and garrison?

General Exposition


In Bologna, the corps, led by its wily sergeants, retreated to the city. The lone lieutenant dispatched a messenger to the small detachment of troops guarding the supply depot requiring them to fire the depot and urinate on the ashes. Unfortunately, the lieutenant was unfamiliar with his troops and chose the most slothful of them to deliver the message. By the time the messenger arrived at the depot and the garrison destroyed it, the city gates had been closed and barred. The troops guarding the depot are valiant (and doomed) patriots. They ready their weapons to face the French forces advancing under Le Rougeaud.

tl;dr: The garrison destroys the depot and fights. The corps is in the city.

(edited for grammar)


This should be a couple of rounds of trivial combat.


Not even a couple


Napoleon sends orders to all his commanders. After any field engagement, they are to try to assault each and every city they besiege.

The situation in Italy must be restored.
