Oudinot's II Corps was covering the left flank of le Grande Armie on its way to Moscow when it ran into Wittgenstein's much Larger I Corps.
Terrain & set up from Age of Eagle's scenario. OOBs from Digby Smith. 28mm figs. M2M rules.
French: Mike, SteveJ & Jim.
Russians: Mark & Mitch.
The French have 2 infantry divisions near & behind Jakobovo village. A small cavalry brigade is off shot to their rear.
The French have also charged home on the left of the village.
On the left, the victorious French columns charged on but ran into a brick wall of Pavlovski Grenadiers & were broken, ending French hopes of a win.
It was an interesting exercise to fight a battle where the odds were heavily in favour of one side, not something wargamers often do.
