Historical Background
The Battle of Fleurus, on 26 June 1794, was an engagement between the army of the First French Republic under General Jean-Baptiste Jourdan and the Coalition Army commanded by Prince Josias of Coburg during the French Revolutionary Wars. Both sides had forces in the area of around 80,000 men but the French were able to concentrate their troops and defeat the First Coalition. The Allied defeat led to the  permanent loss of the Austrian Netherlands and to the destruction of the Dutch  Republic. The battle marked a turning point for the French army, which remained  ascendant for the rest of the War of the First Coalition. The French use of the  reconnaissance balloon was the first military use of an aircraft that influenced the result of a battle.
The stage is set. The battle lines are drawn and you are in command. Can you change history?

French were ahead 8-4 and Charles took the heavies and lights and destroyed the French center. Austrians pulled one out of the fire 9-8. Very exciting game.

Enjoyable scenario!. Prerry much action in the flanks. With balanced cards at the beginning it won't be easy for the French. My first time commanding an Aistrian army and using tactician cards

The French player must remember to watch ALL the opponent cards (including the tactician cards if using them) when a scout card is played.
