It's easy to pick on the French. It's been, what, nearly a couple of hundred years since the French military saw any real glory? A similar thing can be said about turn-based strategy games, whose glory days seem like a lifetime ago. Both get a bit of redemption with Commander: Napoleon at War, a turn-based strategy game starring the French military during the height of Napoleon's empire.
Turn back the clock to the early 19th century. Napoleon is leading his armies all over Europe against a changing coalition of European countries, including at times Russia, England, Prussia, Austria, and Portugal. You play as either the leader of the French or the Coalition in a turn-based quest for conquest.
