Battle of Uelzen – Move 4

1100-1200 24 July 1813

Table at the start of move 4

IV French corps hold their position on the left

2nd Prussian corps are now in position, and are deploying ready to advance

General Reynier – 8CP – Hold Orders

Prussians still out of artillery range

No movement

French IV corps deployed in front of Uelzen

General Kleist – 7CP – Move Orders

Three infantry brigades turn to their left and form column of attack

Artillery manhandle forward into range of enemy infantry

Notes on Game

Kleist is deploying to the right of the Rosche-Uelzen road because that is furthest from the enemy cavalry.

He is also aware that the French will want to hold their left flank, which leads to Hamburg, and by moving against it he is hoping to disrupt the French defence line by making them reinforce their left.
