IV French corps

General Reynier (Gifted) – 7CP – Move Orders

Reynier moves within command range of cavalry

Cavalry advance and form line

Reynier moves back to take command of the column

Column moves forward to join 13 brigade

2nd Prussian corps

General Kleist (Average) – 6CP – Engage Orders

Gunners manhandle the guns towards cavalry

Kleist moves to command column

Move 6 brigade forward and form line

Double move 7 brigade towards Uelzen

Notes on Game

Without cavalry support Kleist has to form square to protect the guns and keep the enemy cavalry away from the vulnerable column. He can then move his infantry towards the town behind the square and artillery

The Prussian cavalry is well to the rear, and already has two casualties from the previous battle.
