Need some help please with this excellent scenario.
It should be emphasised that Scenario 1 is early in the day with the Austrian attack on the village of Marengo.
It is a 16-20'ish turn game and on turn 10 some Austrian reinforcements arrive consisting of Gottesheim's and Sticker's brigades commaned by Ott.
The thing is that the scenario is silent as regards where this column arrives on the battlefield.
It could arrive on the road approaching the bridge over the Fontanone stream leading to Marengo village, or, it could approach from the French bank of the Fontanone in which case it would fall on the French left flank.
Whilst understanding that Ott had been sent on a flank march it remains unclear, to me at least, whether his arrival is meant to be where he's achieved his outflanking manoevre or he is meant to be just starting it. Either interpretation is possible and histories of the battle that I've been able to access are unclear as regards this specific point as they tend to focus when Ott has already achieved his outflanking march.
Anyhow, if "Eclaireur" or some other kind chap could cast some light on this that would be great.
