Eastern Pyrenees 1793: the game

A few photographs of my first “real” campaign game:

The winter had thinned out the French ranks in Spain and now with spring 1793 arriving the French army of Catalonia found itself in a precarious position. Threatened by the Spanish counter attack and a possible British landing in it’s back, the only hope were the reinforcements from central France. Read all about the situation here.

Starting position:

Frwnch rwvolutionary campaign 1793 first turn
The French positions in early 1793 after first turn

French supply is cut by two British landings and a Spanish army descending from the western Pyrenees. French try to reopen the supply line by concentrating on the northernmost threat first – heavy fighting for Narbonne ensues.

The french are unable to defeat the british army near Narbonne, while the spanish forces mop up the french in the south and encircle another french column at the border with the help of another british landing.

At this point the french morale breaks and all columns disperse.

Hmm that was quick, bloody and not at all how I imagined it to go.
