French Gifted Card

Only Gifted commander already moved


The Austrian army urgently needs new orders, but the Poor Card has prevented Archduke Charles from his turn.

Marshal Oudinot is taking advantage of this to reorganize his army

Baden infantry have joined the cavalry rout. They are fortunate that the Austrian CinC has missed his turn and can not take advantage of this disorder.

Commander 1 Austrian corps has ordered his corps to Halt, so can not advance towards the enemy. This makes it difficult for him to regroup his corps in the limited space between the two woods.
