Two Centuries ago...crossing the Niemen

Starting on 24 June 1812, Napoleon Bonaparte and the Grande Armee crossed the Niemen River.

From the film War and Peace by Sergei Bodnarchuk

Commencing the largest and most costly campaign of the Napoleonic Wars.

I plan to game out some of these titanic engagements over this summer and have a major clash for the Dak-Kon game event in Courtenay in October.

This year also marks the bicentennial of the War of 1812 - between Canada and USA.
