The Battle of Weimar

The Halle campaign has gone very well for the Russians, who have won the first two battles and established themselves along the east bank of the river Saale.

This has encouraged Kutuzov to cross the river to secure the unoccupied town of Weimar.

The next day Napoleon arrives with the Imperial Garde. Could this have been a bridge too far for the Russian army.
