Battle of Ligny:

Ligny was the opening to the Waterloo campaign.  While Ney tied down the British to the north west at Quatre Bras, Napoleon pursued the Prussian I Corps north east.  The Prussians stopped to form a line of defense at Ligny and called in reinforcements from Namur.  The fight was on!

Napoleon’s goal was to defeat the Prussian army here and knock them out of the war.  With that accomplished, he could then turn, and deal with Wellington.

The Prussians were able to hang on until nightfall and make an orderly withdraw but to where?  Rain and the wet ground made it nearly impossible to tell.  What happened next, decided Waterloo.  

This map connects continuously to our Wavre and Quatre Bras map with no gaps. -So you can accurately plot the march times between the battles along different routes.

You can play as a stand alone battle.  Better yet, combine it together with the other Waterloo maps for a whole campaign!  Excellent for 4 player games.  You can split the maps up on different tables out of sight from each other.  So the players on the left won’t know what is happening on the right.


Rated Most Realistic & Accurate for:

• Command & Control limitations
• Fog of War -hidden units and chaotic move order
• Logistics -deployment crucial to victory and keeping your forces able to fight.

Used to train officers in the US military and in military academies around the world.
