Wow. That is an impressive layout. What rules do you use? Wissemburg was virtually unwinnable for the French. Douay's division was badly mauled and Douay was killed. They would have been useful at full strength for Froeschwiller a couple days later.

The French can't win the battle but they can win the game. The German victory conditions are tough. They have to capture the town, the Chateau, the train station and exit seven units off the field by turn 18. The Prussians do not arrive until turn nine.

I forgot to mention that if you click "Show more" beneath the album banner there is probably the answer to most of your questions. Some of the photos have commentary to go with it. Just scroll down just beneath each photo. I put the cover of the rules as the first photo.

They Died for Glory has been my go to set for FPW since they came out in the Courier and I played them with a group from Tampa and later Miami

Nice battlefield
