New Years game 02/02/2014 (part 2) France1814 campaign battle in 1/72, using "About bonaparte"

On the second table of  our New Years game day, we staged a 1814 campaign battle.
In 1814, France was loosing the war. Lost most of it's allies, it's resources exhausted, facing a huge coalition, and fighting on several fronts.  In the North of France, Napoleon Faced several armies of Prussians, Russians, Austrains, Swedes, etc..
Napoleon did win several battles, but couldn't afford the losses he took. As he couldn't be everyware at once, his subordinates lost some battles also. Outmaneuvered, Bonaparte lost the war when Paris fell.
