|First Side:||French (Nap)|
|Second Side:||Allies (Nap)|
26 August 1813 - Hypothetical - Intended to be played Head to Head. The Allies advantange in cavalry allowed them to make some troops movements which the French never detected. Such was the maneuver of early August whereby the Army of Silesia slipped past the left flank of Ney's Army of the Bober to move on Oudinot's open right flank. At Elsterwerda the II Corps under Victor is holding open an important river crossing when Yorck's I Corps begins to arrive from the northeast. Both sides will receive more reinforcements as the battle develops.
