Notes on Game
The game starts on the orders issued in the campaign, and players attempt to follow those orders until they can change them once the game has started. However it was not clear what wargame orders should apply to the French. Their campaign orders read:
“The Corps are on orders to defend this position, denying the Prussian Corps passage along the road towards Uelzen, Steinhorst and Munster. They will be on orders to engage the enemy; however should the opportunity present itself then the Corps’ orders will be changed to attack.”
In the Wargame Rules a brigade on Engage orders must advance towards the enemy in a limited attack. On Hold orders they may not advance, but will fight to hold their position and counter attack if they lose it.
It was decided that the French would start the game on Engage orders, but the French player decided Hold orders were more appropriate and changed them at the first opportunity.
Wargame Rule 4 applies.
