Austerlitz: The Rise of the Eagle - the premier play-by-email Napoleonic wargame


As Napoleonic buffs will be aware 2005 will mark the 200th anniversaries of two major battles of the Napoleonic Wars - Trafalgar and Austerlitz.

For the latter organisers of Austerlitz 2005 are promising "the greatest re-enactment of a battle on the European continent".

More than 5000 re-enactors are expected to journey to the Czech Republic late next year to join in a comemoration and re-enactment of the battle of Austerlitz from 2-4 December 2005.

The comemorative event will cover the key parts of the decisive battle that cemented Napoleon's place as the greatest general in history.

These will include the arrival of Tsar Alexander and Austria's Francis I, key firefights in their original locations and then a general battle.

Organisers are expecting more than 100,000 people to attend the event and a further 5000 re-enactors from historical groups around the globe.

However, Austerlitz 2005 will not just be about re-fighting the battle - spectacular though that may be - the organisers are putting together conferences and seminars.

During Austerlitz 2005 there will be religious ceremonies held in memory of the thousands of troops who died fighting there and to mark the end of the fighting church bells will toll around the area.
