Paris City of Light- Wargame and Campaign Rules for the Republican Phase of the Franco-Prussian War. It is the fourth entry in the Wars of Empire series.
Following the defeat of the French regular army in the frontier battles, the surrounding of Marshal Bazaine in Metz and the defeat and capture of Napoleon III at Sedan the war was expected to end. Instead The French Empire was overthrown and a new Republic created to carry on the war.
With astounding speed new French armies were formed to continue the war using remnants of the old army, the garde mobiles and depot companies not overrun by the Germans. With these they attempted to harass and defeat the Germans besieging Paris. The Germans were themselves tied down in the siege of Metz and Paris and thus only had a small number of forces to hold back the French. It was to be a close run thing.....
