I cant work out how the victory conditions work for both armies at Saltanovka. The compass direction seem to be the wrong way round. Any help?
Mogilev is off-map to the north (top of the map).
The French are to either exit the southern (bottom of map) edge…
prevent the Russians from exiting the northern (top of map) edge.
The French victory condition is dependent on which victory condition the Russians choose – and there is no reason or requirement to inform the French which victory condition the Russians chose.
I don't *think* any of this has changed between printings, though 1812-1 is on its 5th or 6th printing presently so if something changed in from one of the earliest I could be in error.
