French Order of Battle for Wagram. July 5, 1809

FRENCH ARMY : NOTES - Most French troops will be average quality, with some rated as green, notably the provisional formations such as divisions Puthod, Tharreau and Frere. Massena's and Bernadotte's corps should also probably fight as green. Wagram was a difficult battle for the French, with many senior officers having to expose themselves to enemy fire in order to keep their troops in order.

Mixed infantry brigades which are composed of both line and light units will gain somewhat in their skirmish marker ability, being able to send out one extra skirmish base for each light infantry base in the brigade (in addition to the one skirmish marker already available to the line regiment/brigade. Players must remove line and light bases alternately from such units (they may not remove all line bases first). Some French cavalry divisions are so weak at this battle that they must be represented here as brigades.
