Where's Auerstadt? If ever there's a classic for the gaming table, that's it.

Not surprising that a predominantly English-speaking audience would think the French lost most of their battles, or that Anglo-French battles where the French won are mostly forgotten; I'm kind of surprised though that big important battles where the Frogs kicked someone else's ass are mostly unknown, however. I guess English military history is mostly predicated on "we beat the French", followed by "we beat the Germans", and nothing else actually registers.
