In 1789, the French Revolution acted as the spark that ignited the volatile powder keg of Europe, pitching the continent into a conflagration of war and bloodshed that would last for decades. Amidst this chaos rose Napoleon Bonaparte, under whose influence France would become a dominant power, controlling, directly or indirectly, the majority of Europe. This companion for Field of Glory Napoleonic gives players all the information they need to recreate the French Revolutionary wars and the rise of Napoleon through to the campaigns of the Grande Armee and the early Empire. Emperors and Eagles also includes full army lists for the Peninsular Wars, where Britain and its Portuguese and Spanish allies slowly, but surely, turned the tide of the war and pushed Napoleon's forces back to their own borders.
