Battle of Munich - March, 1805
Austrian defenders, with no commander, consisting of the V, I Grenadier, and Light Infantry corps (11 I, 4 Gd, 4 C, 3.7 morale) chose Defend.
French attackers, commanded by Soult, consisting of the II and III corps (34 I, 6 C) chose Outflank.
In the first round, both sides lost 1 I and 0.5 morale each.
After the first round, Napoleon successfully reinforced the French pinning force, bringing the I corps (17 I and 3 C) with him and taking command of the French army. The outflankers then arrived on the field of battle.
In the second round, the French lost 0.2 morale but no casualties. The Austrians suffered 10 I, 1 Gd, and 1 C casualties, and lost 3.2 morale, breaking their army.
In the ensuing pursuit, led by Murat who had also arrived with Napoleon, the remaining 3 Gd and 3 C of the Austrian army were scattered and killed, leaving no organized force.
As a result of Bonaparte's victory, France gained +3 PP and Austria lost -2 PP.
