The Battle of Neustadt
Marshal Kutuzov has finally reached the river Saale in the Halle campaign. Neustadt is a small town on the east bank of the River Saale between Saafeld and Greiz. It is unoccupied at present, but both sides are racing to take possession.
This first wargame of the campaign was a hard fought one, with the town changing hands many times and the game in dispute right to the last move.
Despite my best efforts, Jan (and the Russians) won and the French lost their best chance of outflanking the Russian position from the south.
