Battle of Peine Day One – Move 1

0800-0900 4 August 1813

Table at the start of move 1Align Center

XIII French corps is on the left, inside and in front of Peine

4th Prussian corps is deployed on the right

Prince Blucher (Average) – 4CP

Too few CP to take command of 4th corps

No orders issued

XIII French corps

General Poniatowski (Poor) - XIII French corps – Hold – 6CP

Enemy are out of artillery range

Decides to wait and see what the Prussians do

No orders issued

1st (right) and 4th (left) Prussian corps

General Tauentzien (Poor) – 4th Prussian corps - Move – 5CP

Cavalry brigade advance 12” to threaten enemy right flank

Remainder of corps advance 12”

General Yorck (Gifted) – 1st Prussian corps - Move – 7CP

Corps advance 24” in column of march

Poor Card

Game Notes

Both Prussian corps have made multiple moves because they are still more than 16” from the nearest enemy

Rule 7 refers

They have also taken advantage of corps moves to make maximum use of available CP to move closer to the enemy

Rule 3 refers

A commander in chief can take command of one brigade each move

He can then only issue orders to that brigade

Rule 2 refers

Wargame rules can be found at
