The next phase of our 1813 campaign is set in north eastern Spain.

Marshal Suchet commands four French corps, who hold the area north of the river Ebro and are spread from Tortosa to Barcelona.

Wellington is commander in chief of all British, Portuguese and Spanish troops. He has ordered Captain-General Copons to take Tortosa in order to prevent Suchet from sending reinforcements to Marshal Soult at Burgos. Wellington has ordered a British force under General Murray to sail north from Alicante to support the Spanish offensive.

That is our new PBEM campaign. There are nine command posts, and all are filled at present. However from past experience it is likely that some of the players will drop out, and always at short notice. So it would be good to have a small reserve of suitable players ready to take on a command.

The player commitment required to take part is not great. All players are required to reply to campaign mail within 48 hours, or to let the umpire know that they are not available. We aim to achieve one, or possibly two, campaign moves per week. Writing orders, reports and messages should not take more than an hour each time, so a maximum of two hours per week.

No previous experience is required, just an interest in Napoleonic warfare in general, and sufficient interest to commit to a three to six months campaign. Most important is being able to stick to the 48 hour turn around on campaign moves.

There is a campaign diary blog on which I publish a summary of each campaign move, and a detailed battle report. The Tortosa diary blog can be found at
