Battle of Duenas - Move 1

Move 1

0800 to 0900

18 July 1813

Situation at the end of Move 1

On the left Alten makes good progress with his corps advancing in column of march and the cavalry screen in line.

On the right Leval has ordered his cavalry back to Duenas. He then rode to the farm on the French left and ordered the garrison to return to the town.

Rule Note

Alten is able to move so fast because his corps are all within 2” of each other. This allows the whole corps to move for just one Command Point. However it takes a second to move his cavalry screen, who are not within 2”, and a third to move himself. If his corps were more dispersed it would cost seven Command Points (one per brigade and one for the commander) to move them.

To order his garrison back to Duenas Leval has to be within 8”. It takes three moves to get them out of the farm. First move they gather in the centre, second they move to the edge they wish to leave by and third move they march out of the farm. The farm building has been removed to show the formation the garrison are currently in.
