APRIL 19th, Turn 5
JOURNAL: With the armies closing to engagement range, cavalry activity steps up for both sides. French reconnaissance learns that the Austrians have left a skeleton force to cover Ratisbon while taking three full corps down the Eggmuhl road toward Landshut. Clearly, they are aiming to concentrate with the southern half of the Austrian host. But not so fast! Napoleon's Bavarian corps has spent the last five days lingering near Eggmuhl to act as a blocking force for this circumstance. Suddenly, in the late afternoon of April 19, the French descend on Eggmuhl, hoping to catch Charles on the road. Tomorrow will be the day!
