Waterloo-Plancenoit

The Battle of Waterloo-Plancenoit 1815 ...

Battle of Saalfeld (August 2016)


Saalfeld took place on the 10th October 1806.
Rules: NSWC's WRG rules.

Prince Louis of Prussian should have withdraw from his forward position back to the eastern side of the Saalfeld river.
The Prince did not and took on a larger French force and lost (also his life), a few days later the two battles at Jena and Aeurstadt  took place and the end of Prussia as an enemy of France until 1813.

Don provided the Prussians (1813 uniform) and the Saxons (we used bicorne Spanish as no one has any Saxons in either the pre or post 1810 uniforms ( except the kuirassiers for 1812 campaign)

The Prince (Don) ordered a rapid advance by his forces which put the French on the back foot at first.

The French finally started to make headway by move four and didn't look back (except for a small issue in a cavalry melee).

By the end of the day the Saxon's had been removed from player the Prussian centre had failed it's break test and could only retire or stand still and react only.

The Prussian right had passed it's break test and continued to fight even though there were not of Prussians left.
