This is the fourth battle in our 1813 fictional campaign.

Wittgenstein has three of his four corps in position to hold the Erfurt to Rudolstadt road and bridge. He orders his fourth corps to abandon Hofelfelden and march north to join them. They will take 24 hours to arrive.

Davout has only two corps in position to attack, and only one of those are east of the river Saale. However a third will arrive at 0900 and the fourth at 1200. He estimates that he can bring all four corps in contact by late afternoon, and defeat the Russian army before their fourth corps can arrive.

If he is right he will win a decisive victory. If he is wrong he risks a serious defeat.
