Poor Card

No effect as all Poor commanders have moved


The Poor Card arrived too late to affect any commander. The Austrian left and centre how have orders to advance and engage the enemy right. The Austrians have suffered more artillery casualties and morale is becoming fragile, particularly 1 corps on the right

Austrian left and centre begin their advance to engage the enemy

Archduke Charles has arrived on the right flank to issue new orders to 1 corps. They have suffered heavy artillery casualties and are unable to either advance or retire due to their Halt orders and the confined space between the woods

The French right and centre await the Austrian attack. The Baden corps have rallied their shaken infantry but are missing their routed cavalry.

The French left prepare to advance against he battered 1 Austrian corps. They have used their longer range 12 pounder guns to good effect and the enemy are fragile. It is a race to see whether this attack can break the Austrians before their attack on the opposite flank can be launched.
