Völkerschlacht bei Leipzig
The map shows a section of the southern battlefield, where Austrian forces attacked the French right flank of the line extending along the Pleiße river. The ground west of the Pleiße line was marshy, making an attack from that direction very difficult. The available river crossings at Connewitz, Lößnig, Dölitz und Markkleeberg were defended by a division of infantry under Lefol und two divisions of Polish infantry under Poniatowski.
