August 1813, Austria ends its neutrality and enters the VIth Coalition against France. After joining contingents of the Russian and Prussian armies, this new army marches north out of Bohemia nearly 200,000 strong. The march along the west bank of the Elbe into Saxony, its large, lumbering columns stretched across the Erz Mountains.
