Interesting, some of the same men who led the Vendeens in the first rebellion did so again.

That looks fascinating and having just read 'Fighting the French Revolution: The Great Vendée Rising of 1793, by Rob Harper I'd love to find out about the 1815 rising but my French isn't up to it. I was amazed by how many battles there were in 1793 and from the map there seems a fair number in 1815.
I did consider wargaming it for a awhile and bought one each of every pack in Alain Touller's 15mm range. Lovely figures but as Alain's now dead there's no way to get more – so ought to sell them off on eBay.

I have that same book, Billy, a great military history read. And yes there really was a lot of fighting in the Vendee, many pitched battles beside countless skirmishes.
I am doing a solo battle currently down in my basement with an 18mm collection composed of Blue Moon Republican French and specifically designed Vendee rebels too. It's a great range.
