Happy New Year to everyone, and I hope you have a properous and fulfilling 2013. This year promises to be a busy one for the Napoleonic enthusiasts with the bicentenary of the 1813 campaign in Germany. We will be spoilt for choice with Lutzen, Bautzen, Dresden and Leipzig, together with a host of battles which would be significant on their own in any other year eg, Dennewitz, Katzbach, Kulm and Wartenburg. There is also the small matter of Vittoria for those gaming Wellington's battles in Spain and Portugal.
I have started a recruitment drive to 'beef up' the allied armies and hope to play at least one of the 'big four' during the year. After a two week break my batteries have been recharged and with luck there will be some progress on the 'lead mountain' over the next month. Normal posting should begin next week following our midweek game.
Little did I think when I started this blog three years ago that it would still be going. Page views have now passed 25000 and with 36 followers it has proved far more successful than I imagined. Many thanks to you all!
