Skirmish in west Wolfsburg, but no casualties

Notes on Game

The two CinC have now taken command of the battle.

1st Prussian have a problem with infantry and cavalry caught north of the town

The fighting for the town has eased as commanders use their command points to redeploy

V French and 4th Prussian corps enter the table

V French have their artillery near the rear of the column, which will cause delay in deployment.
