In the Hunting Davout scenarios, the area just south and southwest of Saal is often the scene of a climactic and sanguinary clash. See, for instance, How to Lose a Battle by Drew Stone in the Napoleonic Wargaming Club Newsletter, 18th Edition.
Looking south-southeast along the valley of the Feckinger Bach from the rise at Peterfecking. In reality as in Campaign Eckmuhl, this is a great site for a battery dominating the valley!
Looking east across the Saal-Hausen road at the wooded rise opposite Mitterfecking. The edge of these woods is a great place for tirailleurs to snipe with impunity at Austrian cavalry on the road below. Isn't that right, Bill Peters?
Looking northeast to Saal from the Saal-Abensberg road: A view that most French players hope the Austrians will never see!
"Visit exciting Reißing! Recently colonized by a vibrant population of French immigrants, the village is redolent with the atmosphere of la belle France: garlic, manure, and sweat. The well-trained staff will give you such a warm welcome that within minutes, you will think that you have died and gone to Heaven...and you'll probably be half right!" Looking north-northwest from near Buchhofen on the Saal-Rohr road toward Reißing and the ridge beyond.
Looking southwest from the ridge north of Reißing: Another great place for a battery! Saal60, Saal61, and Saal62 form a panorama.
Looking south from the ridge north of Reißing (village visible at left).
Looking east-southeast from the ridge north of Reißing.
Looking northeast over Saal from the ridge north of Reißing.
