Campaign Jena cover

In 1806, Napoleon took to the field against the Kingdom of Prussia, a saber-rattling queen, and several proud generals still clinging to a past of glory under Frederick the Great. In less than two weeks of campaigning the French were masters of Prussia and eastern Germany. Can you repeat the historical performance of Napoleon and his army, or as the Prussians will you inflict a stinging defeat upon the French?

Extensive research went into developing the background for Campaign: Jena-Auerstädt. It features more than 35 maps covering Saxony and Prussia to include a map of the area where the armies fought in early October, 1806. Jena-Auerstädt includes forty scenarios that cover the historical as well as alternate versions of the battles, and three campaigns including over 300 scenarios giving the players a wide variety of options as well as battlefields. Historical actions are included, such as Auerstaedt where Maréchal Davout covered himself in glory and, of course, the main action at Jena where Napoleon himself brought down the once mighty Prussian army.

Jena-Auerstädt includes three campaigns:

  • Action on 14 October 1806, covers the critical of the Prussian army as it attempted to march to Naumburg while Napoleon attempted to intercept them. The historical results were the battles of Jena-Auerstaedt. Can the Prussians alter the outcome of the campaign and change history, or will Napoleon crush them before they march to safety?

  • The Russians are Coming, features Bennigsen's army arriving to reinforce the Prussians during the early portion of the campaign. This campaign file will result in one scenario allowing the players to fight on a large map of over 6,000 square kilometers. The players will have the opportunity to decide if the Russians could have changed the course of history had they been in the campaign area of Jena during the early part of October.

  • Scharnhorst's Campaign Plan, is the largest campaign included with the game. The Prussians historically chose to fight rather than fall back to link up with the advancing Russians. This campaign allows the Prussian player to follow the campaign plan of Prussia's General von Scharnhorst who felt that the army was unprepared to meet Napoleon in the field on equal terms. Spanning a range of eight battles over 34 maps, the players will campaign over an area from Halle in the west to the Oder River in the east, and from south of Berlin to just north of Dresden.
