On 17 June 1789, the Third Estate of the "Estates-General" of France declared themselves redefined as the "National Assembly" beginning one of the greatest events in history known as "The French Revolution." By 1792, the Bastille had fallen, the government had deposed the king, Louis XVI, and had executed much of the nobility. Reaction to the executions, and the declaration of war by the new French government, lead to the War of the First Coalition.
Republican Bayonets on the Rhine, the twelfth installment in the Napoleonic Battles series, recreates those battles from 1792-1800 which were fought in France, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland and Germany from Valmy until Hohenlinden, when the War of the Second Coalition came to an end. The units represented in the game vary from French National Guard, Austrian Freikorps, colorful hussars of all armies, Dutch Republic guard infantry or the French royalist forces led by Louis Joseph de Bourbon, Prince de Condé, brother of King Louis XVI.
Command the French "Armée du Nord" and "Armee de Centre" at Valmy or as the Allies the Prussian and Austrian forces of the Duke of Brunswick. At Fleurus, lead your Allied legions to victory and retake Charleroi or as Jourdan, commander of the French forces, deal the Allies a defeat at the hands of your French legions. Twenty-seven historical battles await your pleasure including Fleurus, the battle which saw the first use of a balloon for military service or Würzburg, where the Archduke Charles defeated Jourdan's French army during the 1796 Rhine Campaign, Kaiserlautern, where the Duke of Brunswick would defeat a French army near Mannheim, Germany, to Second Zürich, where Masséna would defeat the Russians under the command of Rimsky-Korsakov and put an end to the 1799 Rhine Campaign. Republican Bayonets on the Rhine has this and so much more!
