Waren-Nossentin - 1 November 1806
(Nossentin)

Historical Background
Yorck had pulled his troops back from Waren before Bernadotte could mount an attack. Now, with the light infantry formations from Dupont’s division leading the advance, the French pushed forward to Nossentin. After clearing the Prussians from the woods, Bernadotte found Yorck’s infantry deployed with their right flank anchored on Lake Fleesen, the village of Nossentin in the center and some marshy ground on his left. After the French light cavalry failed to make any progress against Yorck’s defense, Bernadotte ordered his infantry forward, while the cavalry swung around to the right. Again, the cavalry could not make any progress due to the marshy terrain. Drouet’s infantry, however, had better success and drove the Prussians out of the village after some hard fighting. The French attack stalled after Bernadotte was thrown from his horse, giving Yorck the opportunity to once again retire—this time toward Alt Schwerin. One Prussian commander finally showed some tactical expertise.

The river tiles are impassable, but what about the "open terrain" tiles, which represent the Lake Fleesen? Are they also impassable?

In the Waren-Nossentin scenarios, the river tiles are actually represent the start (shoreline) of the lakes. The hexes (open hexes) behind the river tiles are still part of the lake and are also considered impassable terrain

Answer is here and as i said, all hexes are impassable :)

I assume impassable too, because the river tiles and the tiles within represents the complete Lake Fleesen.
But i fear, the scenario designers didn´t remember the "Short Supply" card, it´s indeed important and should be clarified better in the notes.
I´ll check it :)

Are the river tiles and the tiles within them impassable or just the tiles within the river tiles?
