THE OBJECTIVES OF THE SOCIETY
The society concentrates on researching a particular action of the war, and then begins to form a battle breakdown scenario
by consulting the available references and archives. (The society holds an extensive library and offers an information service).
When time and money permits, an excursion to the battlefield is highly recommended. With all the information at hand we then produce a thesis or study
and invite members to participate in a tabletop re-creation, from there, we attend shows around the south to demonstrate the toil of our labours.
Although the P.N.S. is essentially a research group, we often travel to some of the more unusual corners of Belgium, France, Portugal and Spain
traversing the fields of glory. We are constantly endeavouring to secure a window of education and understanding of the Napoleonic wars.
