Summary of the Campaign
Davout had deployed his four corps to cover the approach to Hanover, and to secure his communications with Hamburg in the north and Halle in the south.
Blucher had taken Magdeburg in the first phase of the 1813 campaign and established his four corps on the left bank of the river Elbe. Having rested his army he was now ready to advance west and capture Hanover.
Davout advanced to drive the Prussians back over the river Elbe, but was in turn forced to retire and eventually abandon Hanover and retreat to Hamburg.
The campaign was another convincing victory for Blucher.
