General Kleist – 6CP – Move Orders

Prussian corps move three 8” moves in column of march

Notes on Game

The Prussians are moving in column of march because they can move faster in that formation. However they are can not fight in that formation, so their cavalry have been deployed on the left in line to protect them from the enemy cavalry.

Normally a commander must use one CP to move each brigade. However in certain circumstances the whole corps can move for just two CP, one for the corps and one for the commander. Rule 3 applies.

Because there are no enemy nearer than 16” the whole corps has been able to take three moves, each of 8”. Rule 5 applies
