Battle of Abensberg 19th April, 16:00

I have finally got round to concluding the battle I began reporting on a while back. The map above shows the situation at 4pm. Napoleon with 8th Corps and Davout's 3rd Corps are withdrawing westwards towards reinforcements while the Bavarians of 7th Corps are crossing to the northern bank of the Danube accompanied by the 1st and 2nd Heavy Cavalry divisions and the light cavalry of 3rd Corps.

The Austrians have taken a beating during their advance but have secured the battlefield and inflicted an embarassing reverse on the Emperor, all of Europe will take note.

The next post will summarise the current campaign situation...
