Couple of small points: the 1806 battle between Davout and the bulk of the Prussian army is normally transcribed as 'Auerstadt' and the 1800 battle is 'Elchingen' not 'Echlingen'.

Otherwise, great quiz...nicely tricky.

Thanks Spaceowl :)

A mistake for "Elchingen". Sorry.

For "Auerstaedt" I permit now 3 spellings ("AE", "A" and "E").
