Pitschenberg: the forces

The Allied OOB has been taken from Plotho (Der Krieg in Deutschland und Frankreich in den jahren 1813 und 1814 Vol 2) and the article in Militair Bochenblach  (No. 778 (1831) 4501), that provided the data for the Prussian advance guard composition. An educated guess was made for the composition of the accompanying Russian units and for the Prussian reinforcements.
The French OOB has been made from information collated from the Nafziger's Orders of Battle Collection. and the two Fabry's accounts of the campaign ("Etude sur les opérations du maréchal Macdonald, du 22 août au 4 septembre 1813, la Katzbach“ and"Journal des opérations des IIIe et Ve corps en 1813”).
Some units were deleted from the OOB's, to avoid a too large Scenario
