However, the eastern Osterman-Tolstoy's Russian column, formed by the 2nd (Württemberg) and 5th (Yermolov) Corps, is under the threat of Vandamme’s II Corps. The French commander, after crossing the Elbe River in Koniggstein, is menacing to cut the roads leading to Bohemia in the Pirna area (See the enclosed map). The outnumbered Russians, were forced to make a fighting withdrawal, cutting their way through the French, leaving them behind and reaching the Bohemian mountain passes.

The French units will belong to the Vandamme's reinforced II Corps. The French will enjoy both, a slight numerical superiority and the possibility of the arrival of outflanking reinforcements.
