Nap Campaign: Casualty Recovery

One of the questions on the comments section of the Battle of Erfurt posting involved how I calculated casualty recovery.  I attach details below. The chart is taken from Sam Mustafa's Grande Armee rules and I have added factors to cover the campaign. 

Casualties represent injured, detached or deserters returning to their units.

To clarify:
Decisive victory is where the loser routs from the field.
Where the losing side withdraws from the field in good order leaving the ground to the victor, this is classed as a minor victory. Therefore -1 for the loser but no modification for the victor.
Troop grading is taken from the General de Brigade rules.

If anybody wishes to use this themselves please feel free to do so.


  1. Thanks for sharing this, Jon; most useful!
    Would work well with most rules sets; One Hour Wargames comes especially to mind, although those rules need to add quality factors, IMHO, which would be easy enough to do.
