Battle of Steinhorst – Move 9

1600-1700 25 July 1813

Table at the start of move

Prussians have a slight advantage.

Their cavalry are in position to charge enemy guns, and force gunners to flee to town

Four infantry brigades supported by artillery against three infantry brigades

If French can rally their cavalry it would turn the whole battle around

V French corps

General Laurison (Average) – 5CP – Hold Orders

Artillery fire on 1 Prussian, hit

1 Prussian test morale, pass, remain formed

Laurison move to take command of cuirassiers

Move cuirassiers closer to battle line

Laurison return to centre of corps

Cuirassiers test morale for shaken, fail, remain shaken

1st Prussian corps

General Yorck (Gifted) – 5CP – Engage Orders

Artillery fire on shaken infantry, miss

Yorck moves to take command of hussars

Hussars charge enemy gunners, who evade to church

Yorck returns to centre of corps

Manhandle guns within canister range of French battle line

Notes on Game

French moved first, and inflicted artillery casualties on Prussian infantry

Yorck has to use precious CP to order hussars to charge enemy artillery

Gunners then evaded to the church, but French deprived of their artillery
