Notes on Game

Both sides are suffering from poor morale

French cavalry and one infantry have rallied from rout but are still shaken

French artillery and a different infantry brigade have failed and routed

Prussian cavalry and one infantry brigade have routed

There are only two formed French infantry brigades left

They are on attack orders, and must continue to melee

It may well be too late for Reynier to change his orders to withdraw.
