Can Napoleon Be Stopped?

RonBurgundyRonBurgundy Senior MemberRegistered Users Posts: 2,347
So I have come back to this game after several years and have gotten pretty far in my UK campaign. I've been fighting a prolonged war with Spain with Gibraltar changing hands several times. I finally beat them though and now have control over Iberia. In the meantime however, Napoleon has wrestled control of Europe, completely destroying Austria and Prussia. Now, only Russia stands in their way and I'm wondering if my efforts are too little too late? What do you all think?

    You'll be fine. You have an island to camp on in case things go sour. You should be churning out stacks of armies by now. And you're fighting against the AI so it shouldn't be too difficult...

    An' den I'm gonna get really mean."

    If you've conquered Iberia you should have 11 or 12 generals. If you can, take Majorca and Corsica which are generally lightly defended by militia. Eventually they will generate a couple more Generals.

    I defend the Iberian Peninsular with ambush armies at the three entry points, Pamplona, two armies adjacent to the town which is fully manned with dragoons and Foot, on the border above Barcelona, three armies, and in the centre, four armies, all with Generals. None are affected by winter attrition. If, as you say, France has everything bar Russia, despite Gosling's optimism it will be tough.

    Try and take Bordeaux and Toulouse and then defend the bridges with a couple of armies each, the rest forming an ambush on the border at Marseille. Two more Generals there eventually.

    Keep your fleets active blockading etc.

    Bear in mind, France by this time probably have over 30 Generals all leading armies, so only by a slow wearing down can you succeed.
