Are you a better military leader than Napoleon Bonaparte? Can you match the Duke of Wellington as a general? Or can you be a better admiral than Pierre-Charles Villeneuve or, more importantly, Horatio Nelson?

The only way to truly test yourself is by taking on opponents in battle - whether it be on a computer screen or across the dining room table.

On the electronic battlefield you pit yourself against a computer's artificial intelligence and there are a host of really good PC strategy games for Napoleonic fans.

Take on military campaigns and battles that defeated the mighty Napoleon - such as the invasion of Russia or the final disastrous battle of Waterloo.

Boardgamers can test themselves and their friends with Napoleon in Europe and now a new-release game from Kelvin Robertson The Battle of Trafalgar.

The Napoleonic Guide reviews Napoleonic-related wargames that offer gamers a wonderful array of strategic and tactical challenges - including Austerlitz, Eckmuhl, Wagram, Waterloo, Leipzig and many more.

There are plenty of exciting games in production - such as Cossacks 2 and Empires in Arms - so don't forget to keep checking back for the latest updates.
