The Battle of Canope; (March 21, 1801)
Author: [HWK]Kosciuszko. An excellent map for a short 1 vs 1 battle, this is our first Egyptian battle by a map-maker who favors exotic landscapes. A British expeditionary force seeks to exploit the weakening French position in Egypt after the naval battle of Aboukir. The hard-pressed French (blue) have sallied forth from Alexandria to meet the invading British (red). Though outnumbered, the attacking French, under energetic command, can still reverse history and win the assault against Abercromby’s forces. No-upgrades.
