Battle of Wolgast, 2016-02-26, 18:00 GMT, 13:00 EST (Doodlepoll)

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 1.14

I talked to Mike and I think we came to the agreement that my game should be on Friday and his on Saturday.

Also, heads up, the courier system works in the scenario but there will be a repeat of what happened last time. I tried doing everything. I changed the couriers to a corps and that made them not show up in-game and then I made them a division and they did show up but the couriers wouldn't disappear. However, It seems like the amount of couriers who won't disappear has decreased for some reason. Question

Jeanathan, here is the edited OOB I did for your SI Mod. The new Wolgast scenario was built using this. Compare to your original to see what I changed, particularly the couriers and the formations.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/fhlzh0r2n85sobb/OOB_SB_KS_SI_NAP_Wolgast_msc.csv?dl=0

The way the couriers are here will stop them failing to despawn after they deliver their messages.

Seeing how we didn't get the scenario running smoothly this time either I'm just calling the entire scenario off and the third one as well.
