Battle of Colbitz - Move 6

1300 to 1400

4 April 1813

Table at the start of Move 6

IV French Move First

Orders – Hold

Command Points – 6

Artillery fire on infantry column, miss

Move cavalry to right flank and form line

Test morale for Shaken garrison, roll 2, remain Shaken

1 Prussian Move Second

Orders – Engage

Command Points – 4

2 cavalry brigade now under command

Artillery fire on farm, miss

Infantry form square because of enemy cavalry

Move general to command cavalry

Rule Notes

General Yorck is faced with a difficult decision.

The French now have artillery and cavalry supporting the farm

To attack with infantry only is inviting disaster

Until he can bring his own cavalry to bear he must form square
