15 March 1813 - North Germany

Major surprise battle at Wolfenbuttel
The French army desperately need time to rest, rally and resupply
So they are ill prepared for the Prussian attack
Many of the shaken and routed French brigades failed to rally
As a result the Prussians outnumbered the French by two to one
The battle opened with an attack by two Prussian corps
They were quickly reinforced by the other two corps
The French were beaten and routed from the field

At nightfall the French were within five miles of the southern edge of the map
Next day they would have to retreat off the map to recreate no mans land with the Prussians

The Prussians have achieved their objective of taking and holding Brunswick, and defeating the French Army.
