I am confused and been unable to find the answer. The rules say that the December 2 Scenario is the main scenario. The French setup is for all corps except Davout and Bernadotte, which are reinforcements. However, the Turn Track shows Bernadotte's arrival as 11:00 am December 1. Bernadotte should have been on the field for 20 hours when the December 2 scenario starts. What is the disconnect? Why is Bernadotte not already present at the start of the December 2 scenario?

Bernadotte is available to bring into play 11 am Dec 1st. Doesn't mean he MUST enter play then. So, for main scenario, Bernadotte is available to bring into play whenever you want him to.

There’s your answer right there! Don’t confuse availability with arrival. There is a price to pay for bringing on Bernadotte & Davout, and it is often a difficult decision for the French to make.

Because his presence near the field was a surprise to the Austrians and Russians. They didn't expect his arrival. The game simulates this. The Allied player does not know where or when Bernadotte will arrive.

Or IF he will arrive.

My research shows he did, in fact, arrive on the 1st. However, his troops were kept behind the hill that is the main French position, so their presence was unknown to the Austrian/Russian army. I susoect this is what is being simulated by allowing them to stay off the board.

And the point that French reinforcement is allowed to move twice is to simulate surprise: the allied weren't supposed to know that they are coming, but in the game they do. Moving twice brings back some of that surprise.

When I see the title of this thread, all I can think of is the Battle of Auerstedt, not Austerlitz.
