La Bataille de Lutzen
May of 1813, Napoleon began the campaign for Germany with a bang - as was
his custom. The Prussian and Russian armies attempt to ambush the French main
army strung out in road march. Their approach goes undetected and they are
able to close within two miles. In fact, not until the moment of their assault
do the French become aware of them. But, instead of the expected weak flank
guard, they are met by the strong divisions of Souham and Girard and by midafternoon,
Napoleon and 100,000 French and their allies have swarmed to their suppost.
The battle raged in ever-mounting fury until night finally brought an end
to the slaughter. The first major battle of the 1813 campaign ends with thousands
of dead and wounded and with the Russian and Prussian armies in full retreat.
