24 April 1813 – North Germany

Blucher redeploys 1st and 3rd corps to counter French advance in the centre
He is not prepared to attack Napoleon in the centre
But he does order 4th corps to move within attack distance of 13th Polish corps

The French supply system is disorganised by the move forward.   Napoleon orders his corps to resupply, but there is insufficient supplies available for all to do so.   In particular the 1st corps is at present out of range of supplies.   The depot at Wulfsburg will not be operational until midnight, and the other three depot are out of range.   1st corps is down to one days supplies.
