17 August 1813
News from Germany is that the great powers are fully mobilised, the commanders and their troops are eager for war and are awaiting their marching orders with anticipation (and a little fear no doubt!).

Allied commanders have been locked away in smoke filled rooms feverishly planning their strategy to bring down the Corsican devil. Orders have been issuing at a rapid pace from Napoleon's headquarters to his corps commanders.

Will the Allies be able to unite their widely dispersed forces to overwhlem the French and their allies, or will the French pick them off, one by one? Are all the Allies even striving to achieve the same objective? And are all the French commanders and their allies entirely loyal to the Emperor?

Who will make the first move? Will diplomacy be able to avert war at the last minute (I think not!)? Will someone steal a march on their opponents? Will some troops fail to get orders and not even move?

Watch out for the results of the first moves as they come in this week.

Let the war begin! Twisted Evil

Thank you for your generous words Richard, I have just heard from my Emperor (by divine birth, not an upstart, of course) that he is willing to treat with Napoleon should he be willing to remove himself and his armies beyond the Rhine, renouncing all claims to any territory beyond the natural borders of France.
