409 Prenzlau (28 October 1806)
Prenzlau - 28 October 1806
As the Prussian army fled north and east, Murat was hot on the heels of Prince Hohenlohe’s corps. After a brief clash at Boitzenburg, while in search of supplies, Hoenlohe continued to march toward Prenzlau, with orders to move through the city when he arrived. The Prussians were strung out along the Schönermark road when Murat launched his attack. Lasalle led the charge against the Prussian Grenadiers at the Berlin road entrance to the city. At the same time, Murat sent Beaumont to circle left to catch the end of the Prussian column, while Boussart moved against the center. The French cavalry was upon the Prussians so quickly, that the rear guard was destroyed, and the Prussian column was split in two. Only the very head of the column managed to flee through the city. Demanding surrender, Murat deceived Hohenlohe into believing that Lannes’ Corps was in position to block any further Prussian retreat. Exhausted and demoralized, Hohenlohe requested terms and surrendered his entire corps.

I still think that no scenario, even following the historic result, should go over a 75% odds lead!
Come on: 80%, 90% and 100% (like this one) are too much!
So many solutions were possible to balance them while staying historicaly correct!
I managed to get two First Strikes and destory 2 LC attacking prussian left flank.
The rest ended pretty quickly 6-4 or 6-5 for French. Easy game for him after that.
But one of the "more enjoyable" Prussian scenarios... I have to say
