Napoleons Invasion of Russia began on 24 June 1812 when the Grande Armée crossed the Neman River to engage and attempt to defeat the Russian army. The Grande Armée was massive, with over 600,000 troops. The French army initially advanced rapidly into Russia, winning a number of minor engagements and even a major battle at Smolensk in August. But in the end the Russian army always managed to slip away, until finally there was the great battle of, and French victory at, the Battle of Borodino, at the Gates of Moscow. But this was not enough. The French army was ultimately defeated by the vastness of the country and by the dreadful Russian Winter. By the end of 1812 the French Army was in retreat and would be destroyed on its long march home.

Napoleon in Russia recreates 5 historical battles from the doomed Invasion of Russia. There are also non-historical skirmish engagements included as well as one more available as a bonus mission.

Future updates of the game will include in-App purchases covering more engagements in Russia in 1812

Nicely Done

Great job implementing elements of Bonaparte's mammoth invasion of Imperial Czarist Russia. The game captures a number of small scale brushfire engagements (some historical & some fictional) reflecting the Russian initial delaying tactics against Bonaparte's Grand Armee and later harassment tactics against its retreat from Russia. Due to the immense battlefield size of the larger engagements (e.g. Smolensk, Borodino), you won't find those here for playing on an iPhone or iPad but all scenarios of the game are still challenging and enjoyable nonetheless with detachments from both armies pitted against each other during historical elements of the invasion. Overall, two thumbs up.
