There is a flaw in a map for instance that I think we should make note of in the text section of a map. That is, Camdeon Village has a flaw where in 4v4's the general unit of one of the armies is positioned in the water causing him to die instanter and the game to freeze up. Things like that.

I know its late, but your depiction of Spain as some weak corrupted nation is totally false. If you realize Spain was a world dominant Empire, and she really smashed every opportunity for Napoleon in conquering Europe. It did not consist of only the guerrilla armies, but her own armies which were in Spain. Also with her armies are the allies: British, Portuguese. They drove the French out and they all ventured into France itself. You should read more on your history about the Napoleonic Wars. Napoleon also admitted that the war in Spain, his Spanish Ulcer as he termed his ache, was to blame for him losing Europe when he had it in his grasp. I can recall the British being driven out of Eastern Europe after Prussia SURRENDERED, Austria Surrendered, Belgium Surrendered, Russia running away and even the Netherlands surrendering too. I can never recall Spain ever surrenderring. Napoleon gave the Latin American countries and opportunity to fight their independence, so why are you so harsh in smashing Spain as some backward underdeveloped country when a huge part of the world was already Spanish dominated for centuries. While the French Empire last 10 years. LOL :D

Sorry about posting three times on the previous topic, my mistake; however, I am not trying to be some dweeb but I am trying to be historically accurate about something that was very awe inspiring in Europeaon history. Napoleon was a great warrior, a fool, but a great warrior.

Salu to all great warriors! :lol:

http://napoleonistyka.atspace.com wrote:The ease with which Junot's troops had seized Portugal lulled the Emperor into a false sense of conquest. He was excessively optimistic in calculating some of the benefits he hoped to gain from Spain. Doubtlessly fascinated by Spain's history of splendour, Napoleon was convinced that the country was excessively wealthy when, in fact, she was virtually bankrupt. According to Summerville ?In 1807 Spain was one of the most backward nations of Europe ??


Lord Shand wrote:from 1808 until 1810, the old regular army infantry units (including the provincial militia) were relatively reliable, although poorly officered. Their big problem was training and this made them very static and difficult to manoeuvre in battle. There were a few light infantry battalions which were usually split and allocated to higher formations but too few and too poorly trained to be effective. The line infantry contained no light companies. The cavalry was poorly mounted and so tended to be fielded in little packets of a squadron or so from several regiments, brigaded together so that there was little or no "esprit de corps" and very low morale. As a result, when confronted by even similar numbers of the enemy, they would make themselves scarce in short order, leaving their unmounted colleagues in the lurch. This frequently resulted in lost battles. Their artillery was short of guns and draught animals and the train was not professional army. However, the artillerymen were the equal of any and had excellent morale (often to their own discomfort). Their generals were not of the top drawer - with one or two exceptions. The best of them were commanding brigades and divisions (the best was probably Jos? Zayas). Of the independent field commanders, La Romana was sound as was the Swiss, Theodoro Reding. Casta?os and Blake were mediocre, except that the latter had considerable success in 1810 around Zaragoza. Cuesta was old and past his best. Uniforms were pretty well whatever they could scavenge in the field, beg from the tailors of tiny villages, or obtain from their British allies. "Uniform" is a complete misnomer. The "Regiments of new Creation" of which there were hundreds in 1808 and 1809 were created from raw recruits, given virtually no training and sent into battle with no experience. These are UNTRAINED, regular army would be TRAINED and some of the units who had actually taken part in battles and survived could be considered EXPERIENCED.

In 1811, signs of improvement were detectable. They adopted the six-company infantry battalion structure (from one of four companies) with grenadier and light companies, and new training regimes were introduced (the best by Zayas at Cadiz). At Tamames, Barossa and Albuera, the Spanish gave good accounts of themselves and defeated the French. At the last mentioned battle, even the cavalry behaved well. By 1812, Wellington was appointed CiC of the Spanish army (prior to this, there was no overall commander and so little cooperation between the various Spanish field armies) and new uniforms were provided by Britain along with thousands of additional Brown Bess muskets. Some of the old guerilla leaders became regular commanders and Longa and Mina were probably the equals of any European field officers. By 1812/13, many Spanish units were entitled to VETERAN status. The key thing to bear in mind is that, even in the early years, a defeated Spanish army would melt away into the mountains, take a collective deep breath for a couple of weeks, and re-appear ready to fight again. Their morale was fragile in the short term but sound in the long run. The average Spanish soldier was incredibly brave and proud of his country. However, training, poor officers and no overall army control, wasted this attribute until much later.

And he was great in propaganda. He changed small victories into glorious victories. And even defeats into victories. f.e. Egypt.

But I dont think he was a fool.
He was gambling with high jackpot and mostly won. A little more luck for him and we all would speak french today. If the french/spanish fleet wasn't destroyed at trafalgar he had invaded and conquered Britain and then he would have been unbeatable.
