Notes on Game

French take advantage of moving first to make multiple moves towards town.

This gains a march on the Prussians, who are unable to use multiple moves during their turn because enemy are within 16”

Both commanders have had to change their orders from Move to Engage so that they can enter the town and fight the enemy.

Rule 4 explains what can be done under different types of orders
