Alongside the new units, rules, ‘what if?’ scenarios, and commanders is a system to link all your games in a grand campaign that follows the events of the Hundred Days, one battle at a time. Finally, full orders of battle are presented for all the French, Prussian, English and Allied forces involved in the fighting.
