AoE corrections / clarifications.
- 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
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,
