Probably not, but house rules help with balance, and 'parking' some French corps, not using them, adds more challenge against the AI.

One thing that surprises me is that the Guard, which are supposedly attached to Napoleon, did not follow him as he moved towards St Polten. I never detached them. They stayed in Vienna a second turn after Napoleon left, also. I didin't give them orders, thinking they would follow him.
The way I have always thought of this is that when units are attached to the Army Commander, then as I am the Army Commander these units will move where I tell them and stay put until I give an order. I am not saying this is right, it's just how I visualised the game.

Units attached to corps commanders are given orders by the commander to meet the objectives given to the corps. When attached to me, I should give orders as a corps commander would do.

I am down there on the map with my boys. [;)]
This is how I've always understood it as well. Attached units don't move with the Army Commander unless you give them orders to move, or attack, or fallback, or whatever.

What a great AAR! Thank you for sharing this with us.

I see you've started another AAR from the perspective of the Austrians, with reports only. I'm looking forward to seeing how that plays out.
