Looked at the screenshot on the product page and saw that Anglia is sited north of London and that Sussex and Wessex are in the wrong places. That said, why is the map even using Wessex and Anglia anyway?

Petty petty petty! I have to say I thought exactly the same but didn't want to say anything as I thought it might have been unwelcome!

Sadly when you see a basic error like that it does make you wonder (rightly or wrongly) about the rest of the detail that is lauded on the product description. Sorry, I'm not normally this picky, but I've been looking for a good Napoleonic strategy game for years and would very much like to like this.

Don't throw the baby with the bathwater

There might be a few errors in the map, but for the vast if not overwhelming majorities of facts & data, they are right, and yes, NCP is a good operational simulation of the Napoleonic Wars. Admittedly, this is all in my opinion!

The British Isles are there because you have a what if scenario on the invasion of Albion. Also, we planned the map to allows extra scenarios, like the Expedition to Ireland by France, in 1798.

edit: this AAR is in Spanish but you can look at the screenshots they are quite entertaining

Yes, but they are pretty basic. Were there no British beta testers?

If you call us Albion can we please have King Arthur and Merlin to defend us against the our hereditary enemy?

Game looks quite pretty though from the AAR
