15 April 1813 - South Germany

With the rout of 3rd corps Schwartzenberg is forced to abandon two days supplies at Konigsfeld.

He also orders his army to concentrate at Bamberg.    He must first move his supplies at  Bischofsheim and Rothenburg.  

Oudinot orders 9th and 11th corps to occupy and hold Konigsfeld

His army has moved beyond their supply system, which now has to be reorganised.
His new supply system will be Konigsfeld, Walldrun and Hanau
The depots at Frankfurt, Darmstadt and Mannheim will be abandoned

This reorganisation allows the Austrian Army to break contact and retreat east.
