Bunzlau. The strategic situation and the forces

The combat of Bunzlau (present day Bolesławiec in Poland) was a skirmish rearguard action centered around a bridge (actually two successive bridges) over the Bober.
The small French rearguard guarding the bridge and its approachs, was easily overcome by a stronger Prussian advance-guard, that crossed the river in its pursuit. The conflict escalated after both C-i-C fed more and more units in the fight. At last, the French retreated and the Allied won another crossing (although damaged) site to pursuit their defeated enemies.
