16 October 1813 - Historical - Intended to be played either Head to Head or Solo (favors the French) - A 5 min/turn, 50m/hex scale, company level version of scenario 001_Getting_Started-2_Solo - This action depicts the intense fighting for Möckern village which occured on the first day of the Battle of Leipzig. Möckern is located to the northwest of Leipzig and was along the route that Yorck's 1st Prussian Corps took to reach the French army. A desparate fight for the village lasted for several hours involving Yorck's Prussians and Marmont's VI Corps. In particular the Marine battalions distinguished themselves very well and held against all odds until finally succumbing to the weight and ferocity of the Prussian attack.
