An Unexpected Victory...
Prussia's victory over Austria in the Austro-Prussian (or Seven Weeks) War of 1866 was a surprise not only to Austria but also to Europe as a whole. The Austrian Army was viewed almost universally as the better army so its defeat sent shock waves throughout the military councils of Europe...
1866 is a two-player simulation dealing with the Austro-Prussian War of 1866 in Central Europe. One player controls the forces of Prussia and its allies, to include the young Kingdom of Italy and the other player controls the forces of Austria and its German Confederation allies.
The system includes unique mobilization rules that reflect the difficulties of mobilizing for war while attempting to garner as many victory points before war is actually declared. Once war is declared, you must fight with the forces mobilized, so shrewd judgement is required as to what to mobilize, where those forces will operate and who commands them. Always waiting in the wings is the French Second Empire under Napoleon III, prepared to intervene if neither side appears able to clinch a quick and decisive victory.
