22 May 1813 - Historical - Intended to be played Head to Head. After the Battle of Bautzen, the Allies retreated towards Liegnitz. The French army lacked a large cavalry component and thus they were able to make good their escape. However, near Reichenbach, just west of Görlitz, the Russians under Miloradovich were in danger of being cutoff from the main body. His forces needed to buy time for the column to arrive safely and pass through the main position and retire to the east. Historically they were able to do this after a fairly intense battle.

Tough for the Coalition as the French have overwhelming cavalry at the beginning and can encircle you before your reinforcements can get to the front
