Battle of Wolgast, 2016-02-19, 18:00 GMT, 13:00 EST

Battle of Wolgast
1807, 24th of July, 14:00
Corps d'Observation vs. Svenska Arméen
Stralsund, a port in Swedish Pomerania, was defended by the Swedish governor Hans von Essen. On 28 January, French forces commanded by Marshal Mortier crossed the Peene River in an attempt to impose a blockade on Stralsund. To the east, General of Division Charles Louis Dieudonné Grandjean's division crossed the Peene at Anklam, driving back the Swedish outposts. To the west, General of Division Pierre Louis Dupas' division crossed the stream unopposed near Demmin. On the 29th, Mortier's two divisions appeared before the port and on 30 January began the blockade.

For the next two months, the two sides fought a number of skirmishes as the French strengthened their lines of investment. Without control of the island of Rügen, the French were unable to interrupt Stralsund's sea communications and were harassed by Swedish gunboats. During the blockade, one French cavalry and three infantry regiments were taken from Mortier to fight against the Russians in Poland and replaced by troops from the Kingdom of Holland.

On 29 March, Mortier received orders to leave Grandjean's division to maintain the blockade and march to assist in the Siege of Kolberg in Brandenburg-Prussian Pomerania. After Mortier left, Essen drove Grandjean's outnumbered troops from their lines. Grandjean fell back to Anklam where he was attacked again on 3 April and forced to retreat southeast to the fortress of Stettin on the Oder, arriving there on the 7th. Mortier retraced his steps and by 13 April had assembled 12,000 to 13,000 men at Stettin, about the same number as Essen. In very wet weather, Mortier began pressing Essen back to Anklam. On 16 April, Mortier defeated the Swedes in the Battle of Belling. The next day, Essen retreated to the north bank of the Peene.

Beginning on 18 April, the French and Swedish forces arranged the truce of Schlatkow. Anxious to employ Mortier's men against the Russians and Prussians, Napoleon had authorized the marshal to make a truce with the Swedes. For their part, the Swedes were upset that England had given them very little support. By the 29th, the terms were worked out. The Swedes were to stay on the north side of the Peene. They handed over the islands of Usedom and Wolin at the mouth of the Oder and promised not to help the Prussians at the sieges of Kolberg.

King Gustav IV Adolf landed in Stralsund on 12 May, and denounced the truce on 3 July. By this time, the Treaties of Tilsit had just deprived Sweden of all her allies but Great Britain. Autocrat Gustav IV Adolf however viewed Napoleon as the "monster of the apocalypse" and was unwilling to compromise on his anti-French policies.

On 24 July, French Marshal Guillaume Brune attacked the Swedish positions on the Peene river and reoccupied the investing lines around Stralsund. Reinforced by troops from the failed Siege of Kolberg, Brune massed a total of 40,000 men.

This scenario requires a minimum of 2-3 experienced players for the Swedes or alternatively 4-5 people for the swedes.
The French requires a minimum of 3 players but preferably 5.
So in total around 6-10 people.

Besides the regular KS mod, you'll need this in order to play the scenario:
Swedish Intervention 1.13

I can make this game. Thanks for organising it. Generally the KS Group uses Doodle to plan games, giving players (and organisers) a choice of dates and time to choose from so any game gets the maximum player numbers. You should try using it.

In fact if you look carefully there is a caisson in the middle of that lot so I think this is Kevin and his Rent-a-Thug escort sneaking away with the French baggage.

Kevin, I believe you might actually mean whip instead of will. Will doesn't exist in the Swedish army, only the mantle whip of the swedish officer can have such an effect.

Shame I couldn't make this game, Jeanathan, but good to meet you the other night, anyways. Shame we didn't get a game.

Interesting clip showing all those French couriers. Can I infer that there was some problem with the mod.

I have had several SP sandbox games recently using the Swedish mod (with corresponding changes to the KSNap mod) in which the AI enemy Corps has not moved from its deployment zone all game. This has happened using more than 1 map and not the oob in the Swedish mod.

Might this be due to the Swedish intervention mod or perhaps changes made for v118KS mod.

Mike

Very Happy

It was great talking to you Mike. Hopefully, if your work hours allows it, you could play with us the next time we rerun this scenario. It should either be on Friday or Saturday.

If you've been playing as the Swedish on the French vs. Swedish scenarios, the French AI won't move. This is simply because the scenario was designed for the AI to defend and not attack. Simply put, play as the French if you'd like to play the SI scenarios. There will be opportunities in the future updates to play as the Swedes against the Russians and Danes. I could release a swedish version for the existing scenarios if that would be something you'd like. I can include it in the next update. Smile
