Battle for Wolfsburg

The battle has spread to west Wolfsburg

Both sides have taken casualties, but continue to fight

Notes on Game

Yorck has decided that the artillery duel is pointless and a waste

He has limbered his guns to redeploy them to fire on the French infantry

The French gunners fire at close range, but miss.

The French must now reposition their artillery as they can not fire on the town

Rule 7 covers artillery fire
