The Battle of Salzwedel - Move 6

1300 to 1400

4 April 1813

Table at the start of Move 6

Prussians Move First

Orders – Engage

Command Points – 6

Bulow orders the first brigade to occupy the right hand section of Salzwedel

He also sends a second brigade to occupy the left hand section.

French Move Second

Orders – Engage

Command Points – 5

Poniatowski orders his artillery to fire on the enemy square.

The gunners score a hit, and the Prussians have to test their morale

The Prussians fail and are Shaken.

Poniatowski must prevent the enemy from taking possession of Salzwedel

He orders his lancer brigade to move forward towards the town

He then brings up the remainder of the corps, ready to dispute the town.

Rule Note

The Prussian infantry thought that they were out of range of the enemy artillery.

In fact they were just in range.

The Polish gunners rolled 2x6 and scored a hit.

The Prussian infantry then had to test morale

They failed and are Shaken

They will have to test morale again next turn

If they fail again they will rout and probably take the landwehr with them

This could easily lose the battle for the Prussians

Rule 7 covers artillery fire
