Aologies to any Historical people reading this but this battle never happened but we thought it would still make for an interesting Napoloeonic war game using Principles of War rules. The opposing sides were Saxons and French lining up against my Brunswicks and Wurttembergs.
This is the opening stages
The battle lines are drawn.
Outclassed by cavalry, the Brunswickers manovere to refuse the flank by using some artillery and infantry in squares and positioning their own cavalry to stop any attacks from the woods.
Both sides try to gain a tactical advantage by taking control of the village in the center of the battlefield... Fierce fighting breaks out.
with the fighting over the town at a stalemate the French quickly advance on the left taking the small hill.. but the Wurttembergers move to meet them.
and at the sametime the Saxons move through the woods to attack the Brunswickers but the Brunswickers are ready
