I wished to secure to France the empire of the world. I was mistaken; these projects were not proportioned to the numerical force of our population. I should have been obliged to put them all under arms, and I now perceive that the advancement of society and the moral and social well-being of a State is not compatible with converting an entire people into a nation of soldiers. I ought to expiate the fault I have committed in reckoning too much on my good fortune, and I will expiate it. I will make peace.
Napoleon, addressing the members of the Senate, January 1814.

La Patrie en Danger contains five battle games from the opening phase of the Campaigns in France. Napoleon arrived at the front on 25 January. At their first encounter the French surprised Marshal Blucher's Russians withdrawing southward through Brienne. The battle of Brienne was a short-lived success, for just three days later Blutcher triumphed at La Rothiere and wrote-off the enemy as a spent force, advancing hell-for-leather across the Aube and onto the highway to Paris. Napoleon seized his opportunity when Marshall Vorwarts allowed his advancing columns to get dispersed and defeated in detail, in rapid succession, in three short, sharp combats.

The Library of Napoleonic Battles is a two-player simulation at the Grand Tactical level. Each Battle contains a long "Approach to Battle" and a short "Day of Battle" scenario.
