1815: The Game of Napoleonic Warfare

1815 is a turn-based strategy game released in 1985 by Personal Software Services. It is based on the Napoleonic Wars, and allows players to take command of either the French or Allied armies. The game is played on a map of Europe, and players must use their armies to conquer territory and defeat their opponents.

1815 is a complex and challenging game, but it is also very rewarding. It is a great choice for fans of history and strategy games.


1815 is played on a map of Europe, which is divided into a grid of squares. Each square represents a different type of terrain, such as forests, mountains, or cities. Players control armies of units, which can be infantry, cavalry, or artillery.

Each unit has its own strengths and weaknesses. Infantry is good at defending against cavalry, but is weak against artillery. Cavalry is good at attacking infantry, but is weak against artillery. Artillery is good at attacking both infantry and cavalry, but is weak against other artillery.

Players take turns moving their units around the map. Units can move one square per turn, or they can attack an enemy unit in an adjacent square. When two units attack each other, the attacker rolls a die to determine the outcome of the battle. The defender also rolls a die, and the unit with the highest roll wins.

If the attacker wins, the defender’s unit is destroyed. If the defender wins, the attacker’s unit is destroyed.

In addition to moving and attacking, players can also build new units and fortifications. Units can be built in cities, and fortifications can be built on any square. Fortifications make it more difficult for enemy units to attack your territory.


1815 comes with a number of different campaigns, which are based on historical events. The campaigns range in difficulty from easy to hard, and they can take anywhere from a few hours to several days to complete.

The campaigns are a great way to learn the game and to experience the different challenges that it has to offer.


1815 can be played by up to two players. Players can either play on the same computer, or they can play over a network.

Multiplayer is a great way to test your skills against other players. It is also a lot of fun to team up with a friend and take on the AI.
