dennewitz (september 6,1813)
After its rout in Gross-Beeren, the French Army of Berlin, now commanded by the Marshall Ney, is advancing in a long column composed from the corps IV, VII and XII against the weak Prussian IV Corps located at Dennewitz. The Prussian reinforcements (III Corps) are rapidly advancing towards the sound of guns..
The order of battle is based on:
Napoleon at Leipzig, George Nafziger, The Emperor Press
Dennewitz is a battle I has played in several occasions with variable results. In this particular re-figth I used the first edition of Napoleon's Battles edited by Avalon Hill and the only modification allowed was the inclusion of divisional batteries without any further modificacion of the Fire mechanisms.
