..Battles..

Post  Mr. Digby on Thu Oct 27, 2016 9:19 am

1) Leverkusen - 24th March 1815. About 15-20 miles east of Cologne in a forested area of the Rhine valley. This was a division vs division skirmish that I kriegspieled the result for but I will put together a scenario for it soon as it is tactically a fun encounter.

More news to come in this post.

================================================================
EDIT:

Action at Leverkusen, 24th March 1815

This battle is not much bigger than a skirmish, with about a division engaged on each side. Players will essentially command brigades, or very small divisions of about brigade size.

It will need six players, although five will do at a pinch.



The river Rhine is a mile or two off the southern map edge, flowing from east to west. The south-westerly road runs to the city of Cologne which is currently occupied by significant British forces led by the Duke of Wellington. British allied troops from the Hanseatic League and Rhenisch Army have sent a small force to hold the strategically significant road junction of Wernberg-Ossiach. They have pushed lighter forces further north-east beyond Glanck. It is thought that British cavalry may be guarding the road to Cologne.

The Prussians I Korps commanded by GL von Ziethen is at Dusseldorf, holding the bridges across the Rhine. A second significant Prussian formation is north at Dortmund. Commanders of both forces have sent light forces towards Wernberg-Ossiach to link up and establish communications.

The two sides in this action and heavily asymmetrical and their differing objectives mean that both could achieve their aims without significant fighting; or things could be quite bloody indeed, depending on the interpretation of the orders by the low level commanders on the spot.

I would like to play this battle on Sunday 18th December at our usual time of 19:00 GMT. It will need at least 5 players. If we get fewer I can still play but we can fight an ad-hoc, non-campaign battle.

2) Emerecht-Arnhem - 25th-26th March 1815. Prussian II corps of von Borstell attacked the Dutch-Belgian army of Prince William of Orange (which was not fully concentrated) at Emerecht 30 miles SE of Arnhem on the Rhine east bank. Due to the disparity of forces I kriegspieled this battle. It was a significant Prussian victory with about 5,000 Dutch casualties to about 1,500 Prussians. The Prussians occupied Arnhem, the Dutch retired into Utrecht fortress.

3) Hayda - 10th April 1815. Russian VII corps is attacking south from Gorlitz/Zittau into northern Bohemia via the Liberec pass and strikes part of Austrian I corps defending the town. I am making a scenario for this. It will need about 8 players though so getting enough players together may be problematical.

More news soon.

See first post for details of the Action at Leverkusen to be played on Sunday 18th December at 19:00 GMT.

Please post here if you can make the game so I have an idea of numbers. Thank you.

I'll play. Asymmetric objectives are always interesting.
