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

Vittoria Francese 5-0. I prussiani avanzano con i leggeri e l'artiglieria a cavallo sulla loro destra costringendo la fanteria leggera francese a ritirarsi nel bosco con gravi perdite. La fanteria francese muove timidamente nel centro in attesa di ordini per assaltare Nossentin. I dragoni di Schmude si fanno strada e caricano un'unità francese che resiste in quadrato. Bernadotte sposta due unità di cavalleggeri nel centro e manda Tilly a occuparsi degli ussari prussiani. Con un ordine di Marcia Forzata tutti i leggeri prussiani escono dalla città e assaltano le posizioni francesi. La linea francese regge però l'urto. La battaglia termina quando muore il gen. Schmude costringendo i dragoni prussiani a ritirarsi e per la carica della cavalleria di Tilly che attraverso le paludi elimina gli ussar prussiani di Pletz.

The French combined their artillery in the center and began bombarding while the cavalry moved around the Prussian left. A Prussian cavalry attack on the French artillery was unsuccessful. Eventually the Prussian infantry attempted a desperate bayonet charge of the artillery line, breaking through but decimated by a counterattack by Drouet. F5-P3.

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?
