Hohenlinden - 3 December 1800

Historical Background
As France's General Jean Moreau was advancing towards Munich with 100,000 troops, Archduke John was hoping to use his 130,000 men to outflank him and cut off his supply lines. With the French seeming to be trying to do the same, John changed his plan and instead drove straight down the main road to Munich near Hohenlinden.
Unfortunately, for the Austrians, he ran full into the waiting French who had taken strong defensive positions straddling the road. Excellent work on the flanks by General Ney, General Grouchy and General Richepanse shattered the Austrians, who fled. Moreau lost some 5000 killed and wounded, while John had to report 18,000 casualties.
Austria signed an armistice three weeks later.
The stage is set. The battle lines are drawn and you are in command. Can you change history?
