      Hi Bill,

      A couple of things I've found while reading;

      Page 22, Fig 7 description 3rd paragraph - the 2 Div Commander has attached
      to his 2nd Bde not his 1st.

      Page 25, Reserve Movement Results, 3rd sentence starting line 4 refers to
      "Partial Success" yet the march tables on p24 and the quick Ref sheet
      (including the update in the Group Files) all say "Partial Failure".

      A suggested addition to the Data charts-

      Wurttemberg Landbataillones (later Landregiments).
      1807 - 1812 Brigade Effectiveness = Regular (no +1 Bayonet & Sabre
      bonus), Skirmish from 1809

      1813 - 1815 Brigade Effectiveness = Conscript, Skirmish

      The Landbataillones were formed in 1807 when the King of Wurttemberg
      instituted a draft, which had infantry serving 8 years and Cavalry 10. All
      "veterans" who were no longer in service were posted to a reserve force
      known as the "Landbataillone". These units were for defence of the
      "Fatherland" and not for use outside its borders. Initially 2 Btns were
      formed raised to 5 btns in 1809 (same size as the Line btns) and to 8 btns
      in 1813 (1019 men in 5 coys). 6 of these later formed part of the 4th
      Wurttemberg Corps with Schwarzenberg's Austrians in 1814. In 1815 3 served
      in the Austrian IIIrd Armee Corps and 4 in the "Army of Observation on the
      Rhine".

      Note - the 1807- 12 option is really for "What If" scenarios, and allows
      for the high veteran numbers but a reduced time spent on training, as such
      could be left off the main chart. Alternatively rate them as Conscript but
      give them the +1 Reg bonus.

      Any comments appreciated,

      John McCartney
