Napoleón emperador En noviembre de 1799 (18 brumario del nuevo calendario), un general victorioso, Napoleón Bonaparte, con el apoyo de una parte de la burguesía, dio un golpe de Estado, concentró todo el poder en sus manos y se erigió primero en cónsul y posteriormente en emperador. Napoleon's plan was to cross the Berezina River and head for Poland, while his enemies wanted to trap him there and destroy him.

Cours de la Bérézina. (from ATO website:) Napoleon at the Berezina is a solitaire game of the last major action of the 1812 campaign. [11] According to the modern Russian encyclopedia, the Russian army lost from 8,000 to 15,000 killed, wounded and prisoners during four days; French casualties were from 25,000 to 40,000 [12] Richard K. Riehn estimated French losses at about 30,000; most of these were stragglers, actual battle losses being relatively small with about 10,000 French and 14,000 Russians actually involved. Weary French forces begin the battle on both sides of the river while two Russian armies converge from different directions. The drama of the battle's story inspired many works of art centred on the crossing. Our scenario also has special rules to represent the 40,000 stragglers inter-mingled with the Grande Armee. Russian losses are usually placed at up to 8,000 combatants.

Cavalry quickly crossed it followed by infantry to hold the bridgehead. The Battle of Berezina is depicted in the 1956 film War and Peace. The Berezina or Biarezina[2] (Belarusian: Бярэ́зіна; pronounced [bʲaˈrɛzʲinɐ]) is a river in Belarus and a right tributary of the Dnieper. The Russians had approximately 61,000 troops at the Berezina, with another 54,000 under Kutuzov just 40 mi (64 km) to the east who were approaching the river.

By midday of the 27th, Napoleon and his Imperial Guard were across, and the strategy now swung to saving the Swiss rearguard, which was fighting against Wittgenstein's arriving army. Wittgenstein (left) begins to arrive on the field and pursue Victor's corps. While some 22,000 French men became casualties, these included a great number of stragglers, many of them civilians.
