Six Days' Campaign order of battle - Wikipedi

Von Pirch with his II Corps sat in Charleroi., whilst Von Ziethen's I corps was dispersed between Dinant and Givet and damaged to a considerable degree. The I and II French cavalry corps, and the remains of I corps sat linking Beaumont and Givet securing the French right flank In April 1982 my partner and I visited the battlefield of Ligny, in the province of Hainault, Belgium. We managed to obtain a room at the Auberge du Marshal Ney, in Fleurus. Although we were told that the hotel was officially closed until May, the patron opened up a room and served dinner to us once he found out about our interest in the battle. The building itself was said to have been used by Marshal Ney on the night of the 15th June 1815, however there are another two or three habitations within four or five miles of Fleurus which also claimed the same distinction!Looking over the Prussian OOB and scenario notes. My thoughts… The 4th Hussars (1st Silesian) I concur were with the 1st Brigade during the daylight hours and rejoined the Reserve cavalry of 1st Korps sometimes during the night. So if they were out of the area near Gilly then I must account for the mentioned “three” or maybe “four” regiments who faced down the French cavalry advance near Lambusart. One for sure was the Brandenburg dragoons, the other three choices could be: Brandenburg uhlans, 1st and 2nd Kurmark Landwehr cavalry, a portion of the 4th Hussars (1st Silesian) and the 1st Westphalian Landwehr cavalry. I can rule out the 1st Westphalian cavalry since I am aware they were with the 2nd Brigade’s retirement so that leaves the selection of the remaining three regiments which held back the French cavalry late evening advance near Lambusart. On a good second thought and reading my available sources they must be the Brandenburg Uhlans and both of the Kurmark Landwehr cavalry since no mention is given of these regiments being eslewhere on June 15th. This leaves the 6th Uhlans (ex Lutzow) and the 4th Hussars to cover the 1st Brigade. Reserve-Regiment était resté en garnison à Vitry. Damitz, II, p.550. Damitz, II, p.550.

Old Blücher was however quite content with his dispositions and, as he had told Sir Henry Hardinge, the English attaché, ‘The Prussian soldier will not stand in line.’25 Wellington stayed for a while, assuring the Prussian commander that he would bring his forces across to attack the French left providing that he was not attacked himself. Thereafter he left Blücher and was riding back towards his own lines when he heard the muffled thump of gunfire coming from the direction of Quatre-Bras.

Prussian Order of Battle : Ordre de Bataille : Waterloo

  1. Only, this time it is not to herald a movie, but to honour and commemorate the officers and men of the armies that fought this climactic battle 200 years ago! Les won't be the Duke of Wellington. This time, he is going to be leading Prussians in the guise of General von Pirch at the head of the Prussian 2nd Corps
  2. g a cadet in the Hessen-Kassel Nr. 45 infantry regiment. In 1787 he saw action in the Prussian invasion of Holland and in 1793 he participated in Siege of Mainz
  3. As can be seen from the map, the town of Charleroi formed the connecting link between the Prussians and Anglo-Dutch/Belgian forces, It was here that Napoleon intended to strike his first blow, in the hope of separating the two allied armies from each other. This tactic had served him well on numerous occasions, and would allow him to deliver a crushing defeat upon one of his adversaries before turning against the other.
  4. But the interior of the church presented a spectacle more savage and more terrible still, Prussian General von Pirch would later relate, that the waves of light from the billowing flames which crossed the windows, enlightened the dead and the disfigured features of the wounded and of the dying, who crowded the sacred edifice

It appears that the Duke of Wellington did not consider an offensive by Napoleon.15 He seems to have dismissed the idea to such an extent that when the rumours of the French concentration reached him on the 13th June, and of Napoleon himself being at Maubeuge, ‘he took Lady Jane Lennox to Enghien for a cricket match and brought her back at night, apparently having gone for no other object but to amuse her.’16 The Duke was to receive yet more news of French movements on the 14th, but still did nothing until 3 p.m. on the following day.17 This time it was not a rumour, but a definite report informing him that the Prussians were being attacked. He at last ordered a concentration of his divisions at their respective designated areas where they were to hold and be ready to move at a moments notice. It was only then that the Prince of Orange was told to collect his 2nd and 3rd Divisions at Nivelles.18 The Six Days' Campaign saw four victories by the Imperial French army led by Napoleon over the Army of Silesia commanded by Prussian Field Marshal Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher.Between 10 and 15 February 1814, the French inflicted losses of at least 14,034 men and 52 guns on the Army of Silesia. A second estimate listed 16,000 casualties and 60 guns 1861-70 GdI von Wussow 1890 GdI von Verdy du Vernois.

UNIFORM: Most wore wearing British pattern jacket with the lace removed and an extra row of buttons The historical notes on General Letort’s death state he was mortally wounded while summoning the Fus/28th IR square to surrender after charging them several times. General Letort rode forward after this showing of resistance to persuade the ex-Berg soldiers to desert the Prussian army. The 28th IR was easily marked with their recognized Berg white coats and red facing. Fusilier Kaufmann of the 12th Company leapt out of the square and gave General Letort his answer in powder and lead. The Fus/28th battalion lost 13 officers and 614 men at Gilly. The battalion survivors were joined later that evening with the remains of another battalion, the Fus/2nd Westphalian Landwehr battalion who were also crushed by French cavalry during the afternoon retirement towards Gilly.Around Ligny, General Henkel’s Fourth Prussian Brigade supported by General Jagow’s (Third Brigade) still held the village and its approaches. A counter attack by the 1st and 2nd Battalions of the 7th Regiment (Jagow’s Brigade) was ordered against the French who were once more preparing to advance. This resulted in both sides volleying each other at close range until still more battalions were pushed forward from Percheux’s French division which compelled the Prussians to fall back into the village. Here the fighting took on a new savagery with men lashing out with musket butts, cold steel and bear hands. As Siborne so graphically describes it:

Feldmarshal Blucher and the Prussian general staff had humbugged Marshal Ney and Von Pirch's corps was threatening to complete a successful flank march and turn the flank of the entire French forces in the region. Charlet's Brigade had managed to occupy Brugeldamdorfberg, but the rest of Quinot du Passage's Division was still coming up and.

Battle of Gilly June 1815 Wargamerabbi

“Napoleon, by the Grace of God, and the Constitution of the Empire, Emperor of the French, &c. to the Grand Army. “Simultaneous with this attack General Tippelskirchen launched a vigorous assault on Wagnelé. Although managing to occupy the village without too much opposition, when they endeavoured to debouch towards the French position they were assailed by a heavy fire from French infantry concealed amongst the tall corn. This caused such disorder within their ranks that the whole Prussian attacking force fell back to their original position at the rear of the village. Seeing that the Prussians were in a state of confusion after their retreat, the French now renewed their attack upon Saint Amand la Haye, moving columns of infantry on both flanks of the village, as well as attacking it directly from the front. Blücher bolstered the defence of the village by sending the 3rd Battalion of the 23rd Regiment from Colonel Langen’s Eighth Brigade, and soon after also sent in the 3rd Battalion of the 9th Regiment together with the three battalions of the 26th Regiment (all from General Krafft’s Sixth Brigade). These fresh troops allowed Pirch II to withdraw his shattered battalions to a reserve position near Bry, and managed to contain the French attack.42Returning from Sombreffe we followed the course of the Linge stream along to Ligny itself. Here we found the 24 pdr(?) French cannon that sits (or sat) under a very dubious covering of concrete and bending metal supports! A plaque gave the date of the battle, and the information that the cannon itself was used in the battle. I very much doubt if this enormous piece of ordnance would have been used by the French, and rather suspect that it was placed there by some well meaning souls who did not know much about field artillery? Ligny village itself was the scene of a very bloody struggle. It changed hands several times during the battle, and the church and large farmhouses became the focus of some gruesome hand-to-hand combats; the farms of En-Haut and En-bas in particular witnessed much severe fighting. It is said that the little Linge stream, which flows through the centre of the village, and is only a meter or two wide, became so choked with bodies that it enabled the forces of both sides to use them as a human bridge.

12th Brigade MajGeneral von Preussen, Oberst von Funk 2 Line Battalions, 2 Reserve Battalions, 2 Landwehr Battalions, 1 Uhlan regiment, 1 Landwehr Cavalry regiment, 1 Medium foot battery Reserve Cavalry MajGeneral von Roder Brigade Oberst Wrangel 3 Cuirass Regiments Brigade Oberst von Mutius 2 Landwehr Cavalry regiments When a dispatch was received that evening from Marshal Blücher setting out the Prussian commander’s intention to make a stand with his army at Sombreffe, Wellington, instead of conforming to the Prussian plan and moving his army to their support, ordered the 3rd Division to move towards Nivelles; the 1st Division to Braine-le-Comte; the 2nd Division and the 4th Division and the cavalry to Enghien. By these orders the Duke’s army was concentrating away from the Prussians, and shows that he still considered that the French intended to make a turning movement towards Mons and Ath. There can be no doubt that the Duke had indeed been “ Humbugged” by Napoleon.

After sending out these orders Wellington made his way to the Duchess of Richmond’s ball, arriving just after 10 p.m. and remaining there until 2 a.m. in the morning. Only upon receipt of a report from General Dörnberg, who was at Mons, telling him that the French had moved on Charleroi with all their forces, and that there was no threat in the direction he anticipated, did Wellington then order, ‘the whole army to march on Quatre-Bras.’19Two Prussian kings pronounced themselves regimental chefs: Friedrich Wilhelm IV (03.12.1815-02.01.1861) and Wilhelm II (19.06.1888-28.11.1918).I have been back to Ligny four times since 1982, but each time I have never been able to do the whole battlefield as we did then. Taking small parties of tourists who are really only interested in seeing the field of Waterloo, can be depressing to the military historian, and I am always reminding my groups of the words of John Naylor in his work, ‘Waterloo’ (Batsford Books 1960), “The tremendous reversal of fortune at Waterloo has eclipsed Quatre-Bras and Ligny, and the strategy which gave rise to them, just as it has redeemed Wellington’s grossest errors. Yet without the events of the 15th and 16th of June, Ligny and Quatre-Bras, Waterloo is no more than Hamlet without the Prince.” The Capitulation of Pasewalk on 29 October 1806 resulted in the surrender of Oberst (Colonel) von Hagen's 4,200 Prussian soldiers to an inferior force of two French light cavalry brigades led by Generals of Brigade Édouard Jean Baptiste Milhaud and Antoine Lasalle.The Prussians were completely demoralized after a two-week-long retreat following their decisive defeat at the Battle of Jena. An additional “what if” is the garrison from 3rd Brigade at Farcienes (detachment of Silesian Schutzen and III(F)/7th IR.) being able to join as reinforcements covering the retreat. This garrison would have to be withdrawn once Von Pirch was forced to retreat. The garrison is mentioned as in place by Siborne prior to the start of the battle at 6pm. I know of no source indicating this force took part in the battle other than being on the extreme left flank observing the crossing on the Sambre.

Two and a half Prussian army corps or 48 000 men, were engaged in the battle by about 18:00. (Two brigades under Friedrich von Bülow, commander of the IV Corps, attacked Lobau at 16:30, Georg von Pirch's II Corps and parts of Graf von Ziethen's I Corps engaged at about 18:00.) The Waterloo position was a strong one ‘Thus we get the rule that if the detached groups are nearer together than two full day’s march they can hardly be separately defeated, and a great risk is run of being caught between the enemy’s forces as they concentrate on the battlefield itself, thus bringing about the envelopment of the force in the central position…But supposing Blücher and Wellington did not fall back to concentrate on their own lines of communications, then their only other course was concentration on their inner flanks to oppose his (Napoleon’s) advance on Brussels. Napoleon, well served by his cavalry (sic) and by spies, was aware that Blücher could concentrate on his right 24 hours earlier than Wellington could on his left…Consequently Blücher might well be attacked and defeated before Wellington could complete concentration. It would appear, therefore, that an advance by the Charleroi-Brussels road afforded an excellent prospect of defeating the Allies in succession, whatever action they took.’1Ferraris map 1778 showing the countryside of Belgium in 1778. Sample portion of the Ferraris map around Charleroi. These maps were used during the French Revolutionary wars by both sides. Click on the zone rectangle then click on the blue text above the zonal map of the identified map.These troops were, of course, d’Erlon’s divisions who had been obeying the instructions given by the mysterious ADC carrying the pencilled note. The reason for its approach march was, in all probability due to nothing more than a mix-up in place names. Since it has been assumed that d’Erlon was to make contact with the French left wing at Wagnelée, but was found to be bearing on Fleurus, the simple answer is that Wangenies, near Fleurus, had been mistaken for Wagnelée.

Although forced to relinquish their hold on Ligny, the French still remained in possession of Saint Amand, but found it difficult to debouch from there owing to the mass batteries that Ziethen had ranged to cover the exits from the village. Napoleon now ordered General Girard’s division to attack Saint Amand la Haye, which would outflank the Prussian gun line and hinder any renewed attack on Saint Amand.

The artillery moved towards the new position but von Thümen failed to move the 1 st Cavalry Brigade back with the artillery. Realising that he could not defeat the Old Guard but that time was on his side, von Pirch moved the 5 th and 6 th Infantry Brigades to new positions. He selected a defensive line on the north bank of Ligny brook around. General Jacquinot's expert handling of the 3rd Lanciers in fact managed to shock the color guard of the Queen's Dragoons and the Prussian standard is captured.

The French army bivouacked for the night in an area of ten miles by ten. On the left Lefebvre-Desnouettes’s cavalry was around Frasnes, with Reille’s II Corps between that point and Gosselies. Girard’s division of that corps was at Wangenies, near Fleurus*, while d’Erlon’s I Corps was covering the ground from Marchienne to Gosselies. On the right Marshal Grouchy had Pajol’s and Exelmans’s cavalry divisions south of Fleurus, around Lambusart. The III Corps under Vandamme was between Charleroi and Fleurus, while Gérard’s IV Corps camped on both sides of the Sambre River at Châtelet. In the centre, under Napoleon’s direct orders, were the Guard around Charleroi and Gilly, and to their rear, but still not across the river, were Lobau’s VI Corps and the cavalry corps of Milhaud and Kellermann.9 Napoleon had indeed achieved his first objective. He had placed his forces so as to separate both of the allied armies. However he had no idea that Blücher was intending to gather his army and offer battle the very next day.The 1st battalion of the 2nd Westphalian landwehr is also short as company or two that were cutoff on the wrong side of the Pieton and retreated with Steinmetz’s First Brigade via Gosslies (potentially not worth modelling). Steinmetz does not make St. Amand until 11pm, whether the Von Pirch's infantry brigade deploys on the ridge line that covers the crossroads. Von Treskow's Cavalry covers the right flank of Von Pirch, whereas Von Jagow's partial brigade is to cover the left flank of von Pirch. The light cavalry under von Lutzow is in reserve, and a further blind is deployed behind von Pirch The Battle of Ligny (16 June 1815) was the last victory of the military career of Napoleon Bonaparte. 124 relations

His neglect in not calling up Lobau’s Corps earlier in the day, coupled with his failure to send direct orders to d’Erlon when that general’s troops were so close to the field, show a total lapse of his normal military principles. By not having all his forces gathered together on the main battlefield he wore-out what he had and ignored what was available. The fact that he divided his army once again after the battle of Ligny, sending 30,000 men to pursue what he considered to be a “ defeated foe”, admits to the fact that eventually oversights and blunders like these were bound to tell against him in the end.An obverse with raised border showed two busts facing left (or right, from the heraldic perspective), those of the Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm IV and of the Prussian King and the German Emperor Wilhelm II. The latter was depicted wearing uniform of the Generaloberst. Upper part of the obverse was circumscribed in capital letters: “His Majesty King Friedrich Wilhelm IV.

  2. Blücher, who had been over on the Prussian right came galloping back only to find his centre shattered. Nevertheless the old hussar still had fight left in him. As the rain stopped and the setting sun pierced the gloom with its dying rays he called up General Röder’s 32 squadrons of cavalry and, placing himself at their head led them against the squares of the French Guard.45 Amid the chaos and confusion Blücher’s horse was shot, and as it fell pinned him to the ground so that he was unable to rise. Count Nostitz, one of his aides-de-camp tried unsuccessfully to free him as the Prussian cavalry was driven back by the Milhaud’s cuirassiers. These mounted giants, unable to recognize what a prize was within their grasp owing to the failing light, charged on past the Prussian commander, and were in their turn forced to retire by a spirited counter attack made by a regiment of Prussian Uhlans. After being passed twice by enemy cavalry, Blücher was at last freed and led to safety.

  5. That morning d’Erlon’s Corps was concentrated around Jumet, Ney’s orders to move on Frasnes arrived at midday, but owing to Reille’s corps moving to their appointed position, d’Erlon was obliged to wait until these troops had cleared the road. At the commencement of the battle of Quatre-Bras, d’Erlon had only reached Gosselies. At 4 p.m. the General rode forward ahead of his troops to announce that his corps was about to arrive on the battlefield. It was during his absence that the famous pencilled note ordering the whole corps to change direction and march on Ligny arrived. The ADC who delivered these instructions convinced d’Erlon’s divisional commanders that the orders came directly from the Emperor himself, and forthwith the whole corps changed direction towards Villers Perwin. The bearer of the message now galloped after d’Erlon himself who was nearing Frasnes, and upon catching up with him showed him the note and informed him that his corps was moving towards Ligny. d’Erlon himself says that it was Labédoyère, one of Napoleons favourite ADCs who delivered the message, and if anyone could recognise a member of the Emperor’s staff it was d’Erlon. Thereafter the phantom messenger told d’Erlon that he would ride on and show Marshal Ney the note and explain Napoleon’s intentions, ‘and after that we hear no more of him. He vanishes from the scene.’40

  7. I wrote to you an hour ago to say that the Emperor would be attacking the enemy at half past two in the position he has taken between the village of Saint-Amand and Brye. At this moment the engagement is very sharp. His Majesty orders me to say that you must manoeuvre immediately so as to hem in the enemy’s right and give him a good pounding in the rear. His army is lost if you act vigorously. The fate of France is in your hands. Do not hesitate an instant, therefore, to move as the Emperor orders, bearing on the heights of Brye and Saint-Amand so as to take part in a victory which may be decisive. The enemy has been caught flagrante delicto as he was seeking to join the English.

  2. The Battle of Waterloo was fought on Sunday 18 June 1815 near Waterloo in present-day Belgium. An Imperial French army under the command of Emperor Napoleon was defeated by combined armies of the Seventh Coalition, one an Anglo- Allied army under the command of the Duke of Wellington and the other a Prussian army under the command of Gebhard von Blücher
  3. ‘ – a truly brilliant one- was first to contain Bülcher’s left (Thielemann’s corps) with Pajol’s and Excelman’s cavalry, and secondly to annihilate his right and centre (Ziethen and Prich). The latter operation he intended to carry out by engaging the Prussian centre and right frontally, so as to compel Blücher to exhaust his reserves, and meanwhile to call in Ney from Quatre-Bras to fall upon the rear of Blücher’s right wing while the Guard smashed through his centre. By these means he expected to destroy two-thirds of Blücher’s army and compel the remaining third to fall back on Liége-that is, away from Wellington.’24

At just after 5 p.m., seeing the depletion of the Prussian reserves, and having kept an adequate mass of decision in hand for just such an eventuality, Napoleon now ordered the Imperial Guard, together with the cuirassier division of General Milhaud to break the Prussian centre. While these formations were making their way forward General Vandamme galloped across from the left wing bringing news that a massive enemy column was marching on Fleurus, and only some three miles away with the intent, it seemed, of turning the French left. Ney and d’Erlon had both been instructed that if they could join in the defeat of the Prussians, then they were to approach by way of Saint Amand. Vandamme was convinced that part of Wellington’s army had come across to succour the Prussians, and when an officer from his staff who had been sent to identify this new development came riding back shouting, “They are enemies, they are enemies!” the panic caused soon spread along the ranks like wild-fire. General Lefol’s division broke back in panic and Girard’s division (now commanded by Colonel Matis, the two other generals of brigade being wounded) was forced to abandon Saint Amand la Haye to meet the threat of a flank attack. Lefol turned his cannon on his own men to stop them fleeing the field.44 Kriegsspiel clubs were formed within the Guard Artillery and the 2nd Foot Guards Regiment (von Griesham's regiment). Officers from other regiments took part in them, and so the interest spread. Dannhauer tells us that one of the new enthusiasts was Ferdinand von Witzleben who later became a member of the General Staff The positions of the various Prussian and French forces were as follows: On the French left, facing the villages of Wagnelée and Hameau de Saint-Amand was General Girard’s division. On his right stretched the massed ranks of General Vandamme’s III Corps facing the village of Saint-Amand, and containing the divisions of Generals Lefol, Habert and Berthézène. Vandamme’s corps cavalry division under General Domon covered the extreme left of this line with pickets out as far as Villers-Perwin. On Vandamme’s right, Gérard’s IV Corps covered the ground facing the village of Ligny; his three divisions were massed from left to right-General Vichery’s, General Hulot’s, and General Pecheux’s. On Gérard’s right again, and covering the ground in front of the villages of Tongrenelles, Boignee and Balatre, Marshal Grouchy had spread-out the cavalry divisions of Generals Excelman and Pajol, together with a few battalions of infantry. These troops were all that protected the French right flank in the event of a Prussian strike on that part of the field.28 Around Fleurus, and held back as a general reserve and mass of decision, the Imperial Guard and the heavy cavalry corps of General Milhaud.

The Emperor hopes and desires that your seven divisions of infantry and cavalry will be well formed and united, occupying as a whole less than a league of territory, so that they are well in hand for use if necessary.’It must be noted here that no mention is made of Lobau’s VI Corps, which was still at Charleroi. It hardly seems possible that Napoleon would not have sent orders early on the 16th for this corps to move up and take position around Fleurus, but no such orders have ever been found, and it would seem that the great man is guilty of neglecting one of his own maxims of not having all available troops massed on the battlefield. This blunder, more so than the many others that occurred during this brief campaign was, in all probability, the decisive factor in Napoleon’s defeat.Von Pirch II also had an abattis prepared on the Fleurus road past the Abby of Soleilmont. I believe this might would be worth adding to your scenario and would slightly help offset the vast force disparity. By the end of turn 1, Von Pirch has taken up position at the church and brought up the rest of brigade from behind Ligny to stabilise the front line. 8th Artillery takes a test for independent movement (and pass) to move along the brook to extend and protect the left flank Once more the Prussians were forced to retire, in some disorder, to their original position. The French jubilation of yet again forcing the Prussians to abandon the village was tempered by the loss of their divisional commander, General Girard, who fell mortally wounded during this engagement. Still old Blücher would not be denied, and he now ordered a renewed assault on Saint Amand la Haye to contain Girard’s division while he launched his attack on the village of Wagnelé.

The Battle of Waterloo was fought on Sunday, 18 June 1815, near Waterloo in present-day Belgium, then part of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands. An Imperial French army under the command of Emperor Napoleon was defeated by the armies of the Seventh Coalition, comprising an Anglo-allied army under the command of the Duke of Wellington combined with a Prussian army under the command of. Biography. His brigade consisted of the 3rd Brandenburg and 5th Pommeranian Hussar and the 11th (2nd Westphalian) Hussars Cavalry Regiment and were part of Major General von Wahlen-Jürgass' Cavalry in Lieutenant General von Pirch's II Corps. Von Sohr was severely wounded while trapped in Le Chesnay, and surrendered to the French forces of General Jean Baptiste Alexandre Strolz  While these events were unfolding, Napoleon, from his eyrie on the Fleurus windmill, observed that the Prussians did indeed seem determined to hold their position. At a little after 3.15 p.m. he instructed Marshal Soult to send Ney the following order:

Only Perponcher’s 2nd Dutch-Belgian Division was still holding the ground around Quatre-Bras, and soon the French division of General Bachelu began to develop a serious attack against this thinly held line. The farm of Piraumont was taken, while another French division under General Foy seized the Gemioncourt farm and outbuildings.

  2. The new scenario looks great! The focus on getting Prussians off the table in decent order I think is the right way to go about it. The rules you guys use with the charge threat checks will also make the whole scenario quite interesting.
  3. After returning to his headquarters at 9 p.m., Napoleon retired to his bed, totally worn-out. He was awakened at midnight and informed that Marshal Ney had arrived to make his report. We only have one witness to what took place at this interview, and that comes from Colonel Heymés, who tells us, “The Emperor made him (Ney) stay to supper, gave him his orders” and “unfolded to him his project and his hopes for the day of the 16th…”10 Of this Fuller states, ‘Therefore, it goes without saying that Ney must have told the Emperor why he had not occupied Quatre-Bras, and that the latter must have instructed him to occupy it early on June 16th. This is common sense, for should Wellington come to the support of Blücher, it was vital to Napoleon’s project of dealing with one hostile army at a time that the Nivelles-Namur Road should be blocked. To assume otherwise is to write Napoleon down as a strategic dunce.’11

The 2nd Dragoons (1st West Prussian) arrived having ridden from Chatelet to secure the brigade’s open left flank while the 6th Uhlans (ex Lutzow) were linking the 1st and 2nd Prussian brigades on the right flank near the village of Rarsart. General von Pitch II had orders to protect the retirement of the Prussian 1st brigade towards Fleurus and slow up the French advance thus assisting the union of the Prussian army at Ligny and Sombreffe on June 16th.

The bridge over the Sambre at Marchienne, although being stoutly barricaded by the Prussians was cleared just after 10.30 a.m. by elements of Reille’s corps which crossed over the river closely followed by d’Erlon’s I corps, the Prussians falling back towards Gilly and Fleurus, retiring north-eastwards. This left one of Ziethen’s brigades under General Steinmetez isolated on their right flank, near Binche. These troops were hastily pulled back towards Gosselies.

With great secrecy the various French Corps of the Armée du Nord were marched to their respective locations along the French-Belgian frontier. On the 14th June they were: – Left wing, I Corps, commanded by Lieutenant General Count Drouet d’Erlon at Solre-sur-Sambre; II Corps, commanded by Lieutenant General Count Reille at Leers; Centre, III Corps, commanded by Lieutenant General Count Vandamme, and the VI Corps, commanded by Lieutenant General Count Lobau, around Beaumont; Imperial Guard, commanded by Marshal Mortier, Duke of Treviso (not present with the army during the campaign), to the rear of Beaumont. Right wing, Reserve Cavalry, four corps, commanded by Marshal Count de Grouchy, between Beaumnot and Philippville; IV Corps, commanded by Lieutenant General Count Gérard, approaching this wing from the direction of Metz.  It can be seen from these dispositions that Napoleon had assembled his forces of almost 125,000 men within striking distance of his enemy’s advanced posts before Blücher and Wellington had been able to take any defensive measures: 1795 erhielt Oberst von Arnim das Regiment von Braun (No. 3) und an seine Stelle kam der Major von Winter fe Id.

Since 6 am that morning, the Prussian 2nd brigade had fought superior numbers of enemy with great courage and endurance. Totally exhausted, it reached Ligny at 11 pm only to fight the bitter battle of Ligny the next day. Readers may wish to visit my blog postings on the Battle of Ligny June 1815 towards the end of this blog post. Concerned by this development to his right, Vandamme delayed his new orders to press on to St. Amand la Haye, further allowing von Pirch's II Corps time to consolidate their grip on the village. Even at Ligny, the French momentum stalled as desperate street fighting drew heavy casualties from both sides and something of a stalemate developed

This commercial portable medal, or rather token was minted in 1929 by the Nuremberg-based company “Münz-Präge Anstalt Ludwig Christian Lauer” in conjunction with the 250th jubilee of the Grenadier-Regiments König Friedrich Wilhelm IV (1.Pommersches) Nr.2, one of the oldest regiments of the German Empire.‘The Battle, on this part of the Field, now presented an awfully grand and animating spectacle, and the hopes of both parties were raised to the highest state of excitement. Intermingled with the quick but irregular discharge of small arms throughout the whole extent of the Village, came forth alternately the cheering “En avant!” and the exulting “Vive l’Empereur!”as also the emphatic “Vorwärts!” and wild “Hourrah!” whilst the Batteries along the Heights, continuing their terrific roar, plunged destruction into the masses seen descending on either side to join in the desperate struggle in the valley, out of which there now arose, from the old Castle of Ligny, volumes of dark thick smoke, succeeded by brilliant flames, imparting additional sublimity to the scene.”33History of the grenadier regiment originates from the 1,250-strong regiment raised in 1677 by Friedrich Wilhelm I, Elector of Brandenburg and Duke of Prussia. The regiment was divided into eight companies, each consisting of 90 musketeers, 45 pioneers and 15 grenadiers. Obristlieutenant Johann Anton von Zieten (12.07.1640-20.04.1690), future Generalmajor (21.04.1689) and governor of the Prussian town of Minden (October 1689), was made the first commander of the regiment. However, February 20, 1679 is officially regarded as the date the regiment was raised. During its 250 years history the regiment was renamed several times. Thus, since its formation it was given the following names.The French player has continuous French cavalry charges to slow Prussian retrograde movement, attempts to bring some infantry battalions into musketry range, and filter through the open woods to cut off isolated Prussian battalions as his strategy. Exiting the woods too soon will bring the Prussian Reserve cavalry regiments into play so avoid exiting till ready to receive them. Remember that the scenario lasts only ten complete turns so some speed of advance is required unless the opportunity for isolated Prussian unit destruction presents itself.

Approximate strength of General Ruchel's Detached Corps in Jena area on I the afternoon of 14 October 1806: 21 Bns & 25 Sqns = 15,000 men (including 2,300 cavalry & 450 gunners) & 40 cannon (8 in action) Napoleon remained calm, but suspended the attack of the Guard while the situation was clarified. After sending one of his own ADC’s to investigate the mysterious column, he supported Vandamme’s wavering corps by dispatching the Young Guard under General Duhesme to the left wing. The aide sent by the Emperor returned after about one hour with news that the column was French, but that for some inexplicable reason it was now turning away from the battlefield!With the massive coalition of Russia, Austria, Prussia, Italy and England ranged against him in 1815, over 600,000 men, Napoleon had little choice other than attempting to knock one or two of his adversaries out of action before they could join forces and overwhelm him. To this end he decided to throw his weight against the nearest allied armies, those of the Prussians and Anglo-Dutch-Belgian. These two army groups were, in early June 1815, widely dispersed across Belgium. The Duke of Wellington, commanding the Allied army of 93,000 men was placed so as to protect the roads from Lille to Mons. The Prussian army of 117,000, commanded by Field Marshal Prince Blücher von Wahlstadt covered the Charleroi-Brussels main highway and the country to the east, their line of communications running through Liége. On the 14th of June the Allied armies were stationed as follows-Infantry Regiment 'von Kalckreuth' Nr. 4 [Jung-Larisch's division] Infantry Regiment 'von Treschow' Nr. 17 [Natzmer's division] Infantry Regiment 'von Kauffberg' Nr. 51 [Natzmer's division] Infantry Regiment 'von [Jung-]Larisch' Nr. 53 [Jung-Larisch's division] Infantry Regiment 'von Natzmer' Nr. 54 [Natzmer's division] Infantry Regiment 'von Manstein' Nr. 55 [Jung-Larisch's division] von Pirch 2nd (West Prussian) Infantry Regiment 7th Reserve Infantry Regiment. 1st Battalion in peaked cap, 2nd Battalion in shako (after Mantle).

The precursor to the 23rd British Infantry Regiment, the Royal Welch Fusiliers was formed in 1689, making it another of the oldest regiments in the Army. It was designated as the Welsh Regiment of Fusiliers in 1702, and was awarded the Royal title in 1713. Their badge was the 3 feathered cap of the Prince of Wales The ‘Moulin Naveau’ (windmill) is situated on the left hand side of the road leading out of Fleurus to Gembloux, and was used by Napoleon as an observatory during the battle of Ligny. At the time of our visit it was in very good condition, although whether or not the original windmill was made of brick is debateable, many paintings of the battle showing it to be a wooded structure? At the foot of the windmill is the monument celebrating the three French victories at Fleurus. Pirch's corps was shattered losing half of its' manpower in dead, wounded and prisoners either on the battlefield itself or in the pursuit by Pire's and Jaquinot's cavalry. And von Engelhardt's North German Corps had been shattered on the field in less thn two hours of fighting. Over 50 flags and 100 cannon had been captured Eventually the French gained possession of the Churchyard, and consolidated their hold on it by bringing forward two pieces of artillery, which spewed canister amongst the ranks of the Prussian 7th Regiment, and the 1st Battalion of the 3rd Westphalian Landwehr (both of Jagow’s brigade). Try as they may to evict their antagonists, after a further three unsuccessful attempts, the Prussians finally withdrew to the outskirts of the village.

A French army under the command of Napoleon Bonaparte was defeated by the armies of the Seventh Coalition, comprising an Anglo-allied army under the command of the Duke of Wellington combined with a Prussian army under the command of Gebhard von Blücher. And an Lithuanian army under the command of the Elector.

At 11 a.m., under a boiling sun, Napoleon arrived at Fleurus with his staff and escort. He immediately ordered his engineers to construct an observation platform by knocking out part of the roof of the Fleurus windmill, and climbed the ladder to survey the situation for himself.21 Although he could only see the troops of Ziethen’s corps he was soon convinced that they were holding their position while awaiting the arrival of reinforcements. These could be part of Wellington’s army or the main body of the Prussians, possibly both, and it became apparent to Napoleon that they intended a forward concentration in order to unite against him.22 At the moment he only had Vandamme’s III Corps in position, facing Saint-Amand, and he was informed that Gérard’s IV Corps was still some way from the battlefield. Until these troops arrived he did not feel strong enough to commence an attack.23 As the time slipped by the Prussian corps of Pirch I and Thielemann arrived and took up their positions on the field. * Never one to get fazed in a critical situation, Napoleon was more than happy to know that he would be able to deal a decisive blow to the Prussian army. inatructions of Maj. Von Pirch. In 18J9, when the royal family returned to Berlin, the Prince entered the city at the head of his oompany, and from that tlmo he lived the ssme life as other officers of the regiment.

Pirch I was the commander of the Prussian II Corps in 1815, a gig that was awarded to him because the previous incumbent, Ludwig von Borstell, had refused to execute a group of mutinous Saxon soldiery who were less then keen to join the Prussian army Now, at 7.45 p.m. to the accompaniment of peals of thunder and flashes of lightening the massed ranks of the Imperial Guard with cries of “Vive l’Empereur!” moved forward in a deluge of warm rain to the attack. As they descended into the little valley of the Linge stream the French batteries fell silent. Sweeping everything before them the Guard cleared Lingy with the bayonet, and was soon climbing the heights towards the Brye.

Another glitch in the smooth advance of the French army had occurred at the centre where the III Corps, which should have been on the move at 3 a.m. did not receive their marching instructions until between four and five o’clock in the morning. It is said that the aide-de-camp carrying Napoleon’s orders to General Vandamme had fallen from his horse and broken his leg, thus the orders were not delivered. The consequences of this caused a bottleneck, as the troops who were to follow the III Corps had to be given new marching orders while Vandamme attempted to get his men on the road.3 Napoleon sent for General Duhesme with the Young Guard to secure Charleroi and its bridge, and these troops, together with the sappers and marines gradually forced the Prussians to retire, the French taking possession of the town at around 12.00 a.m.4 - GM von Pirch-II III FB [171 men] - Kpt. von Petersheiden - - 6th '1st West Prussian' Inf.

At daybreak, we broke camp and prepared to attack the enemy opposite us because we hoped that General von Pirch would now arrive. However, the enemy had already marched off during the night. Thanks to an amazingly rapid march of the cavalry, we reached his rear guard at Namur and captured 4 guns through a bold attack by the 8th Ulan Regiment You are commenting using your Twitter account.

Marchienne-au-Port and Charleroi were the main crossing points but early evening the French started to cross at Chatelet. The leading French divisions, after crossing the Sambre river near Charleroi, split into two general directions.

Pirch I Georg Dubislav von Pirch Pirch Two and a half Prussian army corps, or 48,000 men, were engaged at Waterloo; two brigades under Bülow, commander of IV Corps, attacked Lobau at 16:30, while Zieten's I Corps and parts of Pirch I's II Corps engaged at about 18:00 The Royal Prussian Army was the principal armed force of the Kingdom of Prussia during its participation in the Napoleonic Wars As the French divisions arrived, Emperor Napoleon in person oversaw the preparations with Vandamme’s tired 3rd Corps (8th and 11th infantry divisions), 1st Cavalry corps (Pajol) with the 4th and 5th Light cavalry divisions, 2nd Cavalry corps (Exelmans) with the 9th and 10th Cavalry (dragoon) divisions, and a detachment of the Old Guard cavalry, the Empress dragoons. At 5:15 PM von Pirch II sent General von Ziethen a note that he will be retiring soon due to the growing French host before him.
