From the manual:
The Battles of Napoleon is a grand tactical simulation of Napoleonic warfare. You may play any of the four historical Battles provided with the game, or you may design your own
scenarios using the game Editor included with the game. In this Editor, you may either reconstruct a favorite historical battle, or have the computer randomize a "hypothetical" battle.
You will command either the French or the Allied forces against a human or a computer opponent.
The game is played in turns. Each turn equals one-half hour of real time and is divided into a number of phases. Each square on the game map represents 100 yards on a side. It should be mentioned that these scales can change with use of the Editor.
