This is a really innovative design concept, light years ahead for its time. I had the game, but it was destroyed in the Great Flood of the Basement. I feel lucky that I found a copy in good condition.

1812 is a great combination containing both a hex map and an area map. This important napoleonic campaign can be experienced both ways here.

Two treatments of the campaign. A very fine game still interesting after all these years. Astonishing that this came out in 1972!

The single best wargaming experience. I sat horrified as my troops melted away with the snow as my Le Grande Armee trudged back to Paris.

Like the area movement game inside more than the traditional hex and counter.

A lot of potential.

Both games use the same supply system, but different movement and combat systems. The supply system can be confusing at times, but it works and it is pretty interesting.

The hex game was an adaptation of the mechanics of the *Leipzig*/*La Grande Armee* system. The resulting rules have some gaps and what feel like mismatched concepts. That said, they are clearer and easier-to-play than *Highway to the Kremlin*.

About 25 km/16 miles per hex, 10 days per turn.

The powerful insight of this game is that battle losses in the 1812 campaign were insignificant; it was desertion, attrition on the march, and outright starvation that decimated armies.
