Well, let's start at the beginning. This is a tactical game about the battle of Dresden. It's not meant to model the complete strategic situation in Saxony. Your link (and your comments) appear to be about the battle of Leipzig, which occurred a month later. While indeed the forces you cite were ultimately under Napoleon's command, they were not present at Dresden and were not likely to appear there in the time scale and the scope of this game.

Therefore, with that in mind, I think you really need to reconsider what you've written about the order of battle for this game.

Now, there are games on Leipzig, including one that was published twice by this company at a different scale, and one published at this scale by the original publishers of the La Bataille series. The gentlemen responsible for the design of this game are well versed in the appropriate orders of battle.

Links to the Leipzig games that I mentioned:

#Headshot.

It is really a pity to post a comment like this. You could have avoid the words "dumb", "rubbish dumb" and "twerps".

And, by the way, the game is great, and all the names in the French side are correct.

Thanks a lot Clash of arms

Sorry, I tried to control myself. I'm still fighting a sugar crash from cookies I consumed yesterday.

Pretty funny! Well, there were at least two Polish units at Dresden, and they were quite good. Let's see if Grumpy Goblin can name them?

Was it the 17 Polish Uhlan Regiment & the 1st Chevauleger-lancer Polonaise?

Sort of... 1er Régiment de chevau-légers lanciers Polonais de la Garde Impériale, Old and Young Guard squadrons, Lefebvre Desnouettes' 1st Guard Cav. division; and the 7th Cheveau Legere Lancers of the Vistula in Pajol's 10th Light Cav. Division.
