Second Battle of Uelzen – Move 7

1400-1500 27 July 1813

Table at the start of move 7

French and Prussians both move infantry towards north Uelzen

French corps still widely separated as Reynier concentrates on Uelzen

2nd Prussian corps

General Kleist (Average) – 5CP – Engage Orders

8 brigade moves into north Uelzen

5 brigade moves to support north and south Uelzen

Kleist moves to centre of corps

Artillery limber and move towards south Uelzen

IV French corps

General Reynier (Gifted) – 7CP – Move Orders

Artillery fire on south Uelzen, no casualties

Gunners manhandle guns towards south Uelzen

Change orders to Attack

13 brigade move into north Uelzen

Cavalry move within charge range of limbered artillery

Notes on Game

Moving artillery without adequate support is always risky

Cavalry can declare an Opportunity Charge on limbered guns

Cavalry on Engage or Attack orders can declare a charge on limbered guns

Even if the Prussians move first next move, the cuirassiers can try for an Opportunity Charge

Opportunity Charges are covered in wargame rule 6
