Good evening,
We are writing a rule house and I ask myself some questions about supports.
By studying the napoleonic tactics, we notice that for the mixed order for example,the battalions in column of attack which is on sides allow of protect on-line battalion and to support him.In our rule as in many of the others, we give +1 no support for the battalions which are in side or back support until +3.
Did the battalions in support really bring a fire power or was it more a question of morale to feel steady?
Indeed, I wonder whether all the troops around the fight, in a reasonable distance, could bring a support?

Have you tried the Principles of War Yahoo group? It's not very active, but the author(s) are there.

I'm using my phone right now so I can't post a link but if you go to Yahoo Groups and search for Principles of War it should turn up so you can register for it.
