Montigny - The road to Quatre Bras



Engage in historical conflicts or embark on your own nation vs. nation campaign.
"The Road to Quatre Bras" series of battle maps resurrects important locations that played a crucial role in the French military's advance and defensive strategies, as well as serving as outposts for the allies during the 100 days campaign, ultimately leading to the iconic battle of Quatre Bras in june 1815. Whether you choose to take on the historical perspective of the allies, defending key cities against the advancing French forces, or embodying the French and attempting to conquer your way towards Brussels, these maps offer an immersive experience. Additionally, they provide ample opportunity for players to create their own unique campaigns and engage in nation-versus-nation gameplay.


Montigny holds strategic significance as the final town on the road to Charleroi. It was a crucial location for the French army, as its capture would allow for the concentration of forces and major engagements. Interestingly, Montigny was initially defended by a small Prussian force intent on impeding the French advance. However, it would later serve as a defensive point for the French, enabling them to cover their retreat following their defeat at Waterloo. The battle map encompasses the vital villages surrounding Montigny, highlighting the importance of securing these key locations and river crossings to facilitate progress on the route to Charleroi.


Battle grids
The map is organized into large grids, with each one measuring 10x10cm or 4x4 inches. These grids, which we refer to as operational squares, are then further divided into four smaller squares that are 5x5cm or 2x2 inches in size. This division allows for engagements on a macro level. The larger squares are utilized for moving troops in group formations, while the smaller squares are perfect for tactical engagements.This system offers players the chance to engage in combat using their preferred style.


Order of battle Nation vs Nation
Players have the extraordinary chance to exhibit their strategic expertise by creating their own customized order of battle in the game. With the ability to deploy up to 80 units per nation on the battlefield, players can truly demonstrate their distinct tactical style and adaptability. The freedom to create one's own order of battle not only empowers players but also presents a myriad of opportunities to explore diverse strategies and playstyles.

Historical order of battle
In order to recreate the events that transpired in Montigny in 1815, it is advisable to assemble an attacking force consisting of 40 units of one's own choosing, while the defending side should consist of 20 units. It is crucial for players to carefully select their troops based on the combat type of the map. This necessitates a meticulous study of the terrain in order to field the most effective troops and accomplish their objectives.


During this altercation, the French forces held a substantial numerical advantage over the smaller Prussian contingent. Engaging in a battle with a 2 versus 1 ratio can offer an engaging and formidable experience. The primary goal for the Prussians is to halt the progress of the French army by guarding critical villages and river crossings. Conversely, for the French army, their main objective is to annihilate as many Prussian troops as possible and capture key locations indicated by green icons on the map, thus paving their way towards Charleroi.


To play in historical mode, you will need both the French and Prussian army. Alternatively, in nation vs nation mode, you can select your favorite nation and create your own battles. The map is available for download in poster size (33x59.50 inches or 89x147cm) to print at a printer store, or as PDF tiles (A4 and US letter 8.5 x 11 inches) for you to print and assemble at home.

Nice uncluttered map. I am sure that WW2 figures and vehicles could be used on it too ... ;o)

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
