I had purchased this game with great excitement after reading all of the glorious reviews on the Geek. Even though I am a great fan of history, my knowledge base did not extend to the Napoleonic age, specifically from a French perspective. Most of my knowledge had to do with English naval operations. I decided to that to fully appreciate this fine game, I needed some historical context. I found a great resource for that on Youtube. PBS released a four part documentary on Napoleon, and all of it is free to watch on Youtube. I thought it was very well done and very engaging, and gave me a great idea of the historical happenings of the day. Each campaign in the game is given context in the documentary. I sat down and watched them all before I played the game, and I highly recommend it.
