1809 Campaign, Battle of Abensberg, 19th April

The orders issued have resulted in a significant engagement, worthy of playing out on a table. The map below shows the general situation at around 6am. The initial Austrian attack has been by III Korps and this has pushed the bavarians back onto high ground.

The Austrian IV Korps may arrive later inthe day, but the Austrians are notoriously slow marchers! There is an outside chance of French 2nd corps arriving from the west but this is unlikely to occur until early evening at best.
The dotted white rectangle shows the battlefield area to be recreated on the 8x4 foot tabletop.


The campaign will now take a short recess while I clear up the garage to set-up this battle.
