Re: Marshal MacDonald at the Battle of Wagram

Macdonald went forward with a column shaped like an n except that his left flank was longer than his right. Wrede and his Bavarians were sent in and marched up to Mac's position. There, Wrede asked Mac to look after his wife and kids and Mac replied that Wrede would soon be "back with his wife" and he would have many more kids. Historians are coy about using a swear word but we all know where to put it in (so to speak). With that Wrede marched off to what he thought was certain death. My question for the forum is this. In what way, if any, would Wrede's Bavarian column have varied from Mac's French column. Would it have been drawn up differently?

Macdonald was certainly getting a unique opportunity to study his enemy's actions because the two of them would fight four years later at Hanau.
