Review quote

"The British Army that faced Napoleion in the Peninsula was small by continental standards, but it consistently out-fought larger French armies, never losing a major open-field action. Its cavalry and artillery were standard -- but its infantry achieved unique results, as their tactics were brought to the peak of professional perfection by Wellington." --Game Trade Magazine (April 2008)show more
