Description

The Bayonet & Musket Battle Series is a series of tactical battle games covering the period from 1670 to 1720. The system is meant to highlight the peculiarities of warfare in that period and the impact of the limitations of command and control. It is an evolution of the Musket & Pike Battle Series for the changes in tactics and organization of armies in the period. It will cover selected battles from the Dutch War, The Nine Years War, and the War of the Spanish Succession.

First volume Banish All Their Fears is opening the series with two battles, one from the Nine Years War and the other from the War of the Spanish Succession — Neerwinden, 1693 and Blenheim, 1704. Each features a great general of the era, the Dukes of Luxembourg and Marlborough. There are substantial changes between Musket & Pike and Bayonet & Musket, and ownership or experience with that series is not necessary to enjoy Bayonet & Musket.

Neerwinden, July 29, 1693, War of the League of Augsburg. Outnumbered and thoroughly out-maneuvered by the French army under the Duke of Luxembourg, British King William III refuses to retreat his Allied army over the river to his rear and instead elects to defend a stout breastwork line strongly anchored on fortified villages. Luxembourg has the cream of the French army at his command, and sees an opportunity to break the enemy defenses and possibly destroy the Allied army.

Blenheim, August 13, 1704, War of the Spanish Succession. Facing defeat in Spain, northern Italy, and along the Rhine, the Duke of Marlborough leads his Allied army deep into Bavaria and threatens to remove that key French ally from the war. The French respond by sending an army under Marshal Tallard that links up with the Bavarians under Elector Max Emmanuel and stands to face Marlborough near the village of Blenheim on the banks of the Danube.
