Zehdenick - 26 October 1806

Historical Background
During the Prussian retreat after the twin disasters of Jena and Auerstadt, Lasalle’s French light cavalry division overtook Schimmelpfennig’s Prussian cavalry just outside of Zehdenick.
The Prussian light cavalry charged home against Lasalle’s hussars and were holding their own until Grouchy’s dragoons arrived.
The cavalry skirmish escalated, as additional troops from both sides joined the fight. With his Königin Dragoons nearly wiped out, Schimmelpfennig ordered his Prussian cavalry to retire.
The stage is set. The battle lines are drawn and you are in command. Can you change history?

And another 4 VP Scenario, which was ended after a few turns :unsure:

And the big advantage of 36 block french CAV against 18 block prussian....

I hope not, but i fear, this is will be another outbalanced scenario....

Also if the prussian may start and hold the CAV Charge, they have the higher risk

General, i don´t like much such 4VP scenarios, but if, they should have nearly same Units/Blocks on both sides

It should not be believed that a march of three or four days in the wrong direction can be corrected by a countermarch. As a rule, this is to make two mistakes instead of one. ~Napoleon
