07 May 1813 – North Spain

Soult has lost three battles in the last two days
His army is battered and he has lost three depots and their supplies
16th corps is out of supplies and lose 400 casualties to attrition
He orders his army to retreat and concentrate at Valladolid
There he hopes to rally and resupply his army before Wellington attacks again.

Wellington has also suffered heavy battle casualties
His army is also in urgent need of rest and resupply
He has taken Mayorga, Tordesillas and Medina and their depots
Although he has sufficient supplies, they are spread over a wide area
He must move his depots forward before he can advance again
He orders his army to occupy and establish depots at Mayorga, Tordesillas and Medina.
