A Prussian battalion in line consists of 8 Züge (platoons), numbered from right to left.

First, the attack column will be formed on the two center platoons, by having the outer Züge turn towards the center and march behind the leading Züge.

Oliver:

Just to make sure, is that attack column configuration a mistake? For a battalion to deploy from an attack column to a line : 87654321 I understand it would have to be in attack column like so:

54
63
72
81

If the configuration you provide deployed to the front it would be

12345678

45
36
27
18

Now that may be what you are thinking or it may be that the Prussians didn't deploy to the front or something else. Just want to clarify that.
