FPGA - French Break Through?

This is the scenario for a Basement Generals game on Thursday, August 1, 2013. This is for Fast Play Grande Armee (FPGA). FPGA is my favorite rule set for the Napoleonic period, bar none. I bought the complete rules from Sam Mustafa's site many years ago, but once he issued the Fast Play variant we have not used the full set again.

This engagement is the day after a big battle over the three towns shown in the map. When we play tonight, the commanders will be rolling for existing casualties on their commands. At the end of the first day, both armies regrouped. The Austrians have assumed that the towns are the main focus and have made a mistake. The commanders have unknowingly weakened their center by too many withdrawals. Can the French seize the opportunity to split the Austrian army leading to its eventual annihilation?

Army deployment - early morning - Day two

I will post a battle reports and photos tomorrow.
