Connewitz starts!

Because of a shortage of available troops, the French/Polish have garrisoned only the bridges over the minor branch of the Pleisse River, occupying the Dölitz Manor, Dölitz itself, and Connewitz. The central bridge over the Pleisse River, has been demolished, thus funneling the Austrians towards the strong points, that are also covered by the French/Polish batteries.

The Austrians are thus forced to carry out a costly frontal attack over the bridges, taking some losses in the process. However, a bridging train is scheduled expected to arrive in the next hours.


  1. Looks like a tough one for the French. Vive le emperor!!!

  2. Or maybe for the Austrians, although their bridge train could arrive!
