Battle of Steinhorst – Move 3

1000-1100 25 July 1813

Table at the start of move 3

French cuirassiers are returning to their own lines, but will still be within range of the Prussian artillery if they do not move first.

1st Prussian corps

General Yorck (Gifted) – 6CP – Engage Orders

Artillery fire on enemy cavalry and sore a hit

Cuirassiers test morale for casualty, fail and rout

Prussian gunners limber guns

1 brigade change to column of attack and advance

4 brigade change to column of attack

Yorck moves to centre of corps

Hussars test morale, fail and remain shaken

V French corps

General Laurison (Average) – 4CP – Hold Orders

Move cavalry away from Prussians

Move artillery forward two moves

Laurison moves to centre of corps

Test morale for routed cuirassiers, pass and become shaken

Notes on Game

Artillery casualty on the French cuirassiers has put them on a par with the Prussian hussars. Both have one casualty, both are shaken. Had this not happened it would have been very difficult for Yorck to continue to attack without cavalry support.

The routed French cuirassiers were moved away from the enemy so that they would gain by being more than 16” from the nearest enemy when they tested their morale.

The French artillery can move twice because they are more than 16” from the nearest enemy
