11 Bavarian Corps
General Wrede moves first. He must wait to see where the Austrians attempt to cross the river Salach before he can move his troops to react.
Orders – Hold
6 Command Point
No action taken
2 Austrian Corps
General Klenau has decided that rather than try to force a crossing by the bridge, he will attempt it by the ford downstream and force the Bavarians to redeploy to stop him.
Orders – Move to
5 Command Points
Whole corps moves 8”
Artillery move 8” and unlimber
Cavalry move 16”
Austrian artillery deployed to cover the hussars as they reach the ford
The decision to cross by the ford is a risky one. Being a Poor commander Klenau only adds 1 pip to an average dice for command points. General Wrede is an Average commander and adds 2 pips each turn.
If Klenau rolls too many low dice he may find that the Bavarians have redeployed before he can cross the river. Worse they could attack his artillery over the bridge and catch his corps as they cross the river.
