Game Notes

The French have been very lucky with their dice this turn, both morale and combat

14 French managed to attack the farm before the Prussians had become the garrison. The Prussians had reached the far edge of the farm, but require one full move to become the garrison. The combat took place at the edge of the farm, and with 11 combat points French routed the Prussians with three casualties.

Rule 9 deals with combat at the edge of BUA

When the Prussian garrison of the farm routed there were no supports within 4” who had to test for the rout. In second and third of rout the routers avoid friends, and supports only have to test morale during initial rout.

Rule 17 deals with reaction to rout.

Davout took command of the chasseur brigade because their own corps commander is unable to move them due to the small number of CP each turn (VI corps have four brigades missing and have to deduct 4CP each turn)

Rule 2 deals with CinC taking command of a brigade
