Napoleon's Later Campaigns is a retrofit rules system designed to increase the historical accuracy of the games in the related Napoleon's Last Battles (NLB) / Napoleon at Leipzig (NAL) / Library of Napoleonic Battles (LNB) family of 1-hour turn, brigade-level, grand tactical Napoleonic study wargames. It is designed to replace the rules of any game in that system, and where necessary, specific retrofit rules (e.g. for special scenario rules) are provided for most games in the series.
The rules are intended to form a new family of games, "backward compatible" with these games, and that is "fast, low to moderate complexity ... combining a grand tactical perspective ... with a focus on a historically sound use of units."
Chitpulls and order rules also facilitate solo play. The order system encourages players, like their historical counterparts, to come up with a plan, from then on the orders will guide and tell you what to do each turn. You just have to make the tactical decisions.
The games that have been explicitly refitted for the system include:
Napoleon's Last Battles
Napoleon at Leipzig
The Battle for Dresden 1813
Napoleon on the Danube
Clash of the Eagles: Borodino & Friedland
Four Lost Battles
Wellington Vs Massena
Napoleon and the Archduke Charles: The Battle of Abensberg
Napoleon and the Archduke Charles: The Battle of Eckmuhl
La Patrie en Danger 1814
Note that other LNB games can be played with the rules from this refit except that their individual exclusive rules have to be taken from their respective rulebooks.

Salamanca: Marmont vs Wellington
