Thanks to the ever-present Armée du Rhin Chief of Staff,
Colonel Baron COUNSELMAN, the Armée’s
administrative functions are working quite smoothly. One of the highlights of the Baron’s efficient reign
as the preeminent administrator in the Grand Armée, is the Excel spreadsheet showing battle records and awards
of Armée du Rhin commanders. That resource may be found here:
In a further stroke of efficiency, Baron Counselman was instrumental in moving
Pierre’s Tavern to its new home
accessible from the main NWC board:
Please see your corps commander for the password.
In addition, our order of battle has changed and continues to evolve. We have some new Divisional Commanders:
Our own Genius of Guiness, Kapitan of the Cannon, the Powerful Pen himself, GdB BARRETT de Brienne led a course at the War College, Why The Allies Must Lose at Waterloo and Why We Win, impressing many skeptics within the Grand Armée, including our intrepid Editor Général Bill PETERSON de Besançon who played the Allied hand in his MOE-honed [spectacularly losing? Ed.] style. For their efforts they were awarded the Ordre de la Couronne de Fer and an additional 5 points over the 5 normally associated with the award [in place of the proposed Order of the Plucked Chicken, for allowing themselves to hang in front of an audience with every fault exposed, twisting slowly in the breeze like executed felons on the gibbet! Ed.]. The brave count has taken his theory off the drawing board and is in the course of putting it to the test against one of Albion’s champions, Sir Muddy.
In addition, work is underway to rename the Ecole de Mars Library
in de Brienne’s honor:
Bibliothèque de Guerre BARRETT de BRIENNE
(Where the librarians are all master brewers, distillers and vintners, and the reference desk maintains a fresh barrel of beer).
Graduates of the Ecole du Mars, Ordre de l’Ecole

Lt. Ricahrd DUGGAN
In addition to being the officer who does more work than any other within the AdR, our own Colonel COUNSELMAN was elevated to the Guard and made Baron de l’Empire. He has the privilege to command the 3e Regiment de la Garde d'Honneur, Division de Cavalerie de la Jeune Garde.
