"Eagles Over Bavaria" & "The Roads to Vienna"

Announcing two new Napoleonic scenario books focused on the 1809 Austrian campaign. There are 4 volumes for this theatre and additional 2 will follow in the Fall. There are many other volumes pending for other campaigns of Napoleon as long as the production costs are covered.
This is a labor of love and his passion for the hobby.

These are about 56-60 pages packed with typically 18-25 scenarios – many of which you may never have seen before or in such detail – not just the large battles, but the many actions and battles that took place over the course of the campaign.

Books on 1806-07 in Prussia, the Peninsula and other theatres to follow.

Michael Hopper is the author of the prior "Rise of Eagles" scenario book which covered the 1805 Austerlitz campaign.

These new scenario books are not rules specific, nor do they require any re-basing. Suitable to use with many rules sets. They are extremely well researched using sources in multiple languages. Pages are filled with scenario information and you will not find pages of pictures of miniatures or uniform guides – these are action packed pages with just the necessary information and a few bios and tidbits to fill gaps.

Highly recommended. These will be available only in small print runs, so order early and frequently as they are released.

These are available only directly with Michael Hopper.
You can email Michael directly –

if you want a sample scenario – email

The first two books are now available. Order directly with Michael Hopper –

Sorry for long delay in replying – books were only printed finally a couple of weeks ago…

Final 2 for the 1809 campaign are expected to be printed Jan/Feb of 2018.

I can thoroughly recommend these books, I have just received 3 of them Eagles Over Bavaria" & "The Roads to Vienna as well as an 1805 campaign guide.
Having emailed Michael with an initial enquiry, we quickly decided I would purchase them & was told to expect shipment in around 6 days, so imagine my surprise 5 days later when they duly arrived – great service from the posties.
The books are very professionally laid out with around a dozen or more battles, ranging from small scale to Austerlitz in it's entirety. All of which have details on OOB, some great maps for tabletop terrain & battle specific information.
Would thoroughly recommend them to anybody with an interest in the 1809 campaign or the earlier 1805 one.
I believe Michael plans several more volumes, all of which I shall be purchasing.
Well done Michael.
