Invasion 1812

It is September 1812.

The Royal Navy, stretched by it's committements in the war against the United States, has left Napoleon the occasion to launch a daring raid on the lightly defended west coast of England.

Having taken the commercial city of Bristol by surprise and scattered the local militia without much effort, the French expeditionary corps now prepares to march on London. A small British force is hastily assembled in order to throw the French invader back into the sea.

It is around the small village of Stanton Staint John, near the university town of Oxford, that the van-guards of each of these armies will clash...

The British van-guard is already marching.

The French advance-guard enters a wood...

...where an outpost of Rifles is waiting.

The French line remains intact and the two opponents...

...settle down for the night...

...some better than others.

A voltigeur sergeant approaches to announce...

...of the British van-guard.

Across fields...

...and in the woods, the skirmishes will rage.

Before the French are forced to surrender.
