Welcome to the Napoleonic Wars.

It is 1809. Armies are on the move to fight battles that will decide the fate of nations.

The Navy

The year is 1809. We are at war.

Four years ago, the British fought and defeated the combined fleets of France and Spain, breaking the naval power of France. They won a glorious victory at the cost of their Admiral's life. Britain gained control of the seas... or did she? Last year, the French army entered Spain and the Spanish joined the war against them.

French sea-power is broken, but her navy is not prepared to admit total defeat. A rogue frigate has been sighted off the Portuguese coast. Is this all that remains of the French navy – or is there something more sinister happening? There are rumours that the French are rebuilding their broken fleet, wishing to rise again. Will they succeed?

The story is ours to write...

The Army

The year is 1809. We are at war.

Last winter, the British were driven from the Peninsula, fighting every step of the way. But now... Now it is time to fight again.

The French army has Europe under its sway and has remained undefeated... until last year when a small British force won two battles in Portugal. Victory was short-lived, however. Sir John Moore led a fighting retreat 400 miles across Spain to Corunna, where he turned to fight to gain time to embark Britain's last army. He died at the moment of victory knowing he'd won.

A new Army has arrived in Portugal and is marching north after the French, determined to avenge their General. In charge is Sir Arthur Wellesley, who took them to victory a year before. The French are not accustomed to defeat and the struggle will be a long one. Can one man take them from defeat to victory?

The story is ours to write...

This is a world at war. From battles at sea to skirmishes on land to the secret fact-finding missions of spies of both sides, there is danger at every turn. There is friendship and camaraderie, too. But the clouds are gathering.

Where do your loyalties lie?
