Halle - 17 October 1806
Hearing of the disaster at Jena-Auerstadt, and not receiving any further orders, Eugene, Duke of Württemberg, deployed his main force south of Halle. He also sent von Hinrichs with a small force to guard the bridges that crossed the branches of the Saale. On the morning of the 17th, Bernadotte’s advance guard pushed back the Prussian dragoons that were at Passendorf. Eugene responded quickly and sent another small force to support the bridge defenders. By this time, however, Dupont’s infantry was in position and he ordered them to charge forward to take the bridges. The French punched through the forward Prussian position and captured the first bridge and island. In less than an hour Dupont’s French had captured all three bridges and were driving the Prussians out of Halle.
The stage is set. The battle lines are drawn and you are in command. Can you change history?
• Commander: von Hinrichs
• 4 Command Cards & 2 Iron Will Counters
• Optional 2 Tactician Cards
• Commander: Dupont
• 5 Command Cards
• Optional 4 Tactician Cards
• Move First
• The French player gains 1 Temporary Victory banner when a French unit occupies a bridge at the start of the turn (Temporary Victory Banner Turn Start)
• The entire river system of the Saale is fordable (both river rows are part of the "Saale" river and fordable!). The shallow fords do not stop movement.
405 HALLE (Morning) (17 October 1806)
Are both river sections a part of Saale or only one and have the 2 ford river tiles any other/additional rule to the other fordable river, because the scenario notes says only the entire river is fordable?
The entire river system of the Saale (both rows) is fordable. The shallow fords do not stop movement.
