1813 Halle Campaign
The Russian army under the command of Marshal Kutuzov has finally agreed to take the offensive and are marching from Dresden to the river Saale to support the Prussians in the north.
Napoleon only has two corps on the river Saale, with a third in reserve. However the Imperial Garde is now fully up to strength and he is ready to take the offensive.
The Halle campaign is about to start.
Starting tomorrow the daily march orders and daily campaign diary will be updated each day.
