Continuing with WR's General Bonaparte's early 1796 campaign, WR has posted the scenarios of Voltri, Monte Negino and Montenotte recently which leads WR swinging the French Army of Italy westwards for the next battle of Millesimo (Cosseria) on April 13, 1796.

Millesimo (Cosseria) was a small skirmish action around the area of Millesimo. The advancing French divisions of Augereau and Joubert pushed back the puny Austrian Auxiliary Corps under GM Provera and Piedmontese detachments of FML Colli towards Montezemolo and Ceva. Would be just a footnote in military history except for the heavy French casualties suffered on the slopes before an old dilapidated castle atop a hill. Cosseria castle was one of those battles… coup de main siege storming type which, on hindsight, should never have happened. But it did….

A Millesimo Cosseria scenario and After Action report (AAR) with text, pictures, and almost the entire game length video is posted on the Wargamerabbit blog for all to enjoy. Free free to use the scenario for your own game format.

Lots of great information about an action I had all but forgotten about, back at a time when young General Bonaparte was very willing to learn from his mistakes.

Enjoyed reading, lots of great piictures, paintings, diagrams, maps. You really go above and beyond the call of duty with your AAR's, great stuff!

Thanks Gonsalvo and Ashenduke for your comments. Part of this little scenario test was how it work out siege situations. Got some good useful data from the scenario attempt.

Next campaign segment is Dego II. Should have late December posted.
