The last 18 months have been difficult for the entire planet, but in our little corner of it we are thrilled to announce some good news. 1812-1: Master of the World, 1812 in Russia, Series 3


So what’s changed? Darn near everything.

1812-1s3: Master of the World, 1812 in Russia is the second of our new ESR Series 3 Campaign Guides and is by far the most beautiful product we’ve shipped to-date. So here is what to expect in 1812-1s3!

The Book

The History

  • The entire Campaign Guide was rewritten to tell the story of Napoléon’s most devastating campaign.
  • Present tense briefings put the player in the place of the historical generals.

The Maps

  • Featuring all new maps from a mix of rare and historical sources – including Russian sources previously unavailable to us.
  • All new scenario maps, we’ve “zoomed out” to provide more space for approach and to standardize on several sizes.

  • New theater maps showing the disposition of major forces at the onset of each campaign.
  • New operational maps “zoomed in” for each scenario showing who was approaching the battlefield from where.
