Who Will Arrive First? - D'Erlon's French I Corps and additional Allied troops have been set to arrive earlier, but with variable possibilities of showing up - The Battle of Quatres Bras - June 16, 1815 - D'erlon & Allied Troops Arrive - D'Erlon's I Corps will arrive as expected by Ney, Additional Allied troops will arrive in time to participate in the battle - Ney is present near Quatres Bras. He has been given the task of taking the vital crossroads there. Ney has been given Reille's II Corps reinforced with cavalry. He also believes he has been promised the assistance of D'Erlon's I Corps. The Allied troops defending Quatres Bras don't look too numerous. Ney is hesitant because knows of Wellington's penchant for masking his army by placing them on the reverse slope. Wellington expects to receive assistance all day from troops who are making the long trek to the battlefield.
