Product Description


Let’s start a land war in Asia…

After making peace with Tsar Alexander’s Russian Empire in 1807, Napoleon turned to war in 1812 when diplomacy failed to address the massive blackmarket trading circumventing the Continental System.

Master of the World, our first Napoleonic Campaign Guide, set the standard for the rest of our offerings. Nine scenarios that range from the beginner to the expert, provide options for small, medium, large, and colossal battles on the tabletop. The Uniform Guide includes over 800 images for the hundreds of units featured in the scenarios.

The 1812 campaign is arguably Napoleon’s most well known campaign and one of the great tragedies of military history. It is also the story of Russia’s First Great Patriotic War, repelling a great invader. In excess of 600,000 soldiers and support personnel crossed the Niemen River from the Grand Duchy of Warsaw into Imperial Russia under the French Imperial flag beginning on 24 June, 1812.

Master of the World includes everything you need to begin recreating the first phase of Napoleon’s disastrous 1812 Russian campaign: organization, maps, historical briefings, and uniforms.
