Got smoked as the Prussians 7-1. The French cavalry got loose on the Prussian left flank, killing everything including a leader. Prussians never stood a chance as they had bad cards as well.

Vittoria Francese 7-3. I prussiani iniziano la battaglia cercando di sloggiare i leggeri francesi che si trovano a Beulwitz mentre al contrario l'ala destra francese riceve l'ordine di rinforzare il paese di Garnsdorf e le colline adiacenti. Visto che nel centro la situazione sembra stabile Lannes da' l'ordine di Grande Manovra e avvicina le sue unita' ai piedi delle colline di Sandberg occupandole in seguito con facilita'. A questo punto le cose si mettono male per i prussiani anche se Ferdinando con i suoi cavalleggeri interviene e riesce ad ottenere qualche successo sulla sua ala sinistra. La battaglia termina con la piena occupazione del Sandberg.

Prussians won 7-4 due to cautious French player and good use of the iron will token allowing a devastating counter in the central area around Crosten.

Played this twice. I was Prussian first and thought all I could do was go down fighting. When I played the French I didn't draw a single centre card, and with my cavalry unable to get moving I got tied up in squares and lost command cards, and ended up with a very hard to achieve loss. There is life in this scenario, I can assure you.

Much trading of volleys in the center. Ferdinand made a valiant attack on Vedel, ultimately crushing the French right flank. The Sandberg was well defended by the Prussians, at one point nearly vacant of troops, but a timely Grand Manoeuvre allowed them to reinforce and counterattack Claparede's forces. But Lannes had a G. Manoeuver as well and ordered Reille to advance, followed by a Bayonet Charge. This sealed the French victory 8-4.
