Bulletin de la Grande Armée No. 3

Officers of the Grande Armée,
I am proud to share with you the advancements that the Grande Armée & the NWC has made since 20th December 2020.

First I want to draw your attention to the new "History Section", this main forum section is designated for discussions related to all the usual topics like battles, politics, economy, social life, etc..
Within it you find 3 sub-section called "The Reading Room", "The Listening Room" and "The Viewing Room". These will take up content specific to the section. So if you look for something to read, listen or watch check out the specific sub-section. I urge all officers to contribute to these sections any findings they encounter, so that fellow officers can benefit from them too. A nice finding that we already have is the Revolutions Podcast that you can find in the Listening Room. For everyone not familiar with the French Revolution era it is a must have and it's for free, so check out the forum and enjoy it.

Next is the establishment of webpages for the "Décrets Impérial (Imperial Decrees)" and "Tâches d'Officier (Officer Duties)". Until now they were only hosted on the forum, but now being long enough in place we decided to shift them to dedicated webpages. Still, if you have questions or suggestions regarding them, just go to Pierre's Tavern and post them.

The French "Medals and Awards of the French Army" webpage gets further improved. This time the "Awards for Victories over Coalition forces" have been adjusted with an additional award as well as being expanded to cover up to 300VP. Of course this is a high mark but nonetheless I mark we will surely need some day.

Now a call for volunteers. All that are interested in contributing to the French cause should consider doing so by volunteering as Division Commander in the Grande Armée. The officers taking such positions will mainly conduct the quarterly musters and are usually the first to get contacted if a subordinate needs support.
Administrative Points are rewarded and will yield you awards of the Légion d’honneur series.
All that is required is a minimum rank of Capitaine.
For further information check out our forum thread titled "WANTED: Division Commanders for the Grande Armée", there you will find more details.

Last but not least I want to inform everyone that the JTS game "Republican Bayonets on the Rhine" is currently on sale, so check out the forum and follow the product & shop links there to take this good chance to grab it.
But there is an even better chance coming. JTS has a summer sale from June 15th - 30th this year, and all titles that have been released for longer than a year will be 25% off and prices will reflected that in the store. No coupon codes are required to get the pricing and no order minimums. So if you want to go for more that is a perfect chance to do so.

Vive la Révolution! Vive la France!! Vive l'Empereur!!!
