Jena-Auerstaedt includes three campaigns. The campaign entitled "Action
on 14 October 1806” covers the critical of the Prussian army as it
attempted to march to Naumburg while Napoleon attempted to intercept
them. The historical results were the battles of Jena-Auerstaedt. Can the
Prussians alter the outcome of the campaign and change history, or will
Napoleon crush them before they march to safety?
The second campaign, "The Russians are Coming," features Bennigsen’s army
arriving to reinforce the Prussians during the early portion of the
campaign. This campaign file will result in one scenario allowing the
players to fight on a large map of over 6,000 square kilometers. The players
will have the opportunity to decide if the Russians could have changed the
course of history had they been in the campaign area of Jena during the
early part of October.
The third and largest campaign is "Scharnhorst's Campaign Plan," the
magnum opus of the game. The Prussians historically chose to fight
rather than fall back to link up with the advancing Russians. This campaign
allows the Prussian player to follow the campaign plan of Prussia’s General
von Scharnhorst who felt that the army was unprepared to meet Napoleon in
the field on equal terms. Spanning a range of eight battles over 34 maps,
the players will campaign over an area from Halle in the west to the Oder
River in the east, and from south of Berlin to just north of Dresden.
Altogether, Campaign Jena-Auerstaedt comprises the richest Napoleonic
experience available for the PC. Along with the standard set of game editors
the simulation includes new units and leaders, as well as the great game
engine many have come to enjoy over the past five years.
