Battle of Helmstedt - Move 1


24 July 1813

Table at the start of Move 1

First - VI French – 6CP

The corps has completed the march to the farm.

Marmont has ordered the leading brigade to occupy the farm.

The chasseur brigade is east of Helmstedt to cover the move to the farm in column of march.

The corps artillery have deployed to the left of the farm to support the cavalry

Second - French CinC – 7CP

Davout has taken command of the chasseur brigade and has moved them closer to the corps to be within command distance of the corps commander, but still able to cover the deployment

Third - Poor Card

Fourth - Prussian CinC – 7CP

Blucher has taken command of 4th corps, which has a poor commander, and leads them towards Helmstedt

Rule Note

When the Poor Card is drawn the next Poor Commander drawn may not issue any orders.

However the CinC may take command of any corps, and providing he is not also a Poor Commander the Poor Card will not then affect the corps.

This is covered in Rule 2 - Command and Control – CinC
