Nice and well done for using Weigle's 1859 – how did you find the rules?

Sbruzzate di Sotto

Is this a fictitious or historical battle? I tried to google it but nothing came up

Dave there might be an application or extension you can add to your browser for that. I think Google Chrome should do it by itself.

I would guess fictitious with an Austrian General called Wienerschnitzel!

Thanks guys! Shedman, I really liked the rules even if I only played a brigade per side while it is really made for whole corps. I think it gives the right feeling. I wish the rules were more clear in some points tought, for example on the charge sequence for example. Anywy if you likw the period you should buy the rules even if only for the complete orbats and maps for all the battles and the very good discussion of tactical and technological challenges of that war.

And yes, Sbruzzate di sotto does not exist… But it exists in popular culture. It is a fictitous and funny-sounding name for a verysmall provincial town, so if you want to make fun of someone who is not very sophisticated you tell him, "where do you come from, Sbruzzate di sotto?!". It also sounds very "lombard" so I tought it was appropriate..

Valerio – thanks – I have all of Bruce's 19th Century rules for the very reasons you cite

I prefer to use Bloody Big Battles for my 1859 games as they are a lot easier to comprehend
