Re: Marshal MacDonald at the Battle of Wagram

Have recalculated and come up with somewhat higher figures for the three divisions as below.

Read as: Regiment (with number of battalions), followed by losses on 5 July/6 July on the second line (indented). Thus 18e Léger of two battalions lost three officers on 5 July and sixteen on 6 July.

Broussier
9e Ligne (3)
-/38
84e Ligne (3)
-/40
92e Ligne (2)
-/41 [this for all four baons]

Lamarque
18e Léger (2)
3/16
13e (3)
6/5 [and 23 either 5 or 6 July]
23e (2)
6/11
29e (3)
19/30
92e (2) [included above]

Seras
35e (1)
0/2
42e (1)
0/4
53e (3)
3/13
106e (3)
6/14
112e (3)
0/26

This includes all B and T from Martinien’s principal volume (with the Liste Supplémentaire at the end) and the Supplément volume.

Notes:
• If 92e Ligne losses are split more-or-less evenly (as there were two battalions with each division):
o Broussier = c. 100
o Lamarque = c. 93
• Given 13e Ligne’s major role on 5 July, have added 11 to total losses as an estimate for 6 July casualties. Martinien's works does not specify the date of injury/death for 23 names.

Taking these notes into account, this yields total losses of dead/wounded on 6 July:
Broussier: 100
Lamarque: 93
Seras: 59
Total: 251

Multiply this by 17 (based on the officer:enlisted loss ratio of 1:17 from 350 officers/6,000enlisted) = 4,267 enlisted losses. Add 251 = 4,518. All of these figures, of course, must be taken as approximations, best estimates, a working hypothesis of losses for "MacDonald's Square" on 6 July 1809.
