The arrival of the Catholic forces seemed to undermine Horns confidence
in the Bamberg position.He positioned his newly raised Solms infantry in
the inadequate earthworks with cavalry screen out front with the majority
of his cavalry waiting on the left flank.Horn planned to let his new recruits
take the brunt of the attack while placing his more experienced forces on the
safer side of the river and sending his baggage and the majority to the rear.
Earthworks were not fully constructed and are classed as soft cover
Objective - For the Catholics to cross the bridge and capture the town
the Swedish force was to defend.
