My favourite Napoleonic battle to wargame is the Battle of Dennewitz, fought on 6th September 1813.  Marshal Ney was trying to bully his way through to Berlin, where Marshal Oudinot had already failed a few weeks earlier using the exact-same troops.  General Buelow, at the sharp-end of Bernadotte's Army of the North, was trying to stop him.  This is a great encounter battle with a very cosmopolitan flavour - an Allied army of Prussians, Russians and Swedes, versus a 'French' army of Frenchmen, Bavarians, Saxons, Italians, Wuerttembergers and Poles.  Even the British Rocket Troop makes an appearance, so what's not to love...?

I've played this scenario about five or six times since the 1990s, but not recently, so it would be good to dig it out again.

Another great scenario you have done. It has inspired me to pull out an old OB for the battle for Volley & Bayonet and update it it for Bloody Big Battles. I'll do a version of your map and arrival times. And you have all the brigade commanders. It might be a while before it gets played. But thank you.
