After Action Report
In early October 1813, the Prussian army needed to force a crossing of the Elbe River. Yorck's corps aimed to do so at Wartenburg, but did not realize the French planned to defend the town. Bertrand's multi-national IV Corps held the town (and castle in the town) in force. The defenders also benefitted from rough ground that narrowed the Prussian approaches. Could Yorck force the issue and drive the French from the Elbe, or would Bertrand's battered corps hold on a bit longer? Using Age of Eagles in 15mm scale, we decided to find out!
