Rule Notes

1 Prussian corps have 12 pounder guns which have longer range than 9 pounder

Rule 7 shows ranges and firing rules

Reynier has ordered his corps to pull back to Colbitz.

He can do this on Hold orders, because the “Hold” applies to Colbitz, not the farm

He must do this before the Prussians are in close contact.

He is moving his cavalry to cover this withdrawal
