Excerpt from Annals of the Wars of the Nineteenth Century, 1813 1815, Vol. 4: Compiled From the Most Authentic Histories of the Period

The Viceroy, under these Circumstances, could no longer hope to maintain himself at Posen. With a view, therefore, of still covering Berlin, he broke up thence on the 12th, and on the 1sth took post behind the Oder, whither he called up the division of La Grange from Berlin to take up the line to Frankfort The Oder proved as little capable of being maintained as even the Vistula had been; for early in March the advance of Wittgenstein's corps, under Colonels Tettenborn and Czernichov, crossed that stream at Wrietzen, and already carried joy into the streets and lanes of garrisoned Berlin, where the Viceroy, however, had still his head-quarters on the 2lst. General Grenier quitted that city, and bringing up Lauriston's division from Magdeburg showed fight, but Eugene was unwilling to bring matters to such a crisis while the reinforcements expected from France were scarcely yet across the Rhine. The Prince could not hope to maintain himself in the Prussian capital with ill-assorted men against the accu mulating forces of the Russians and a disa¿'ected people, and therefore resolved to quit it on the 2nd of March, and withdraw behind the Elbe. Here be vigorously set about the reorganisation of the army and the restoration of discipline, which had become dangerously lax during the tedious calamity of the retreat out of Russia. Eugene had by this time drawn to his eagles as many as troops, and, though deserted by most of the marshals and generals, Davoust and Victor were still at their commands; the former Of whom, having the divisions La Grange and Regnier under him, was posted for the defence of Dresden, while the corps Of Grenier with the head-quarters of the army was placed at Witten berg, Lauriston again returning to his Old quarters at Magdeburg to complete the line now adopted. Garrisons of invalids and fugitives nevertheless occupied Dantzig, Thorn, Modlin, Zamoschi and Gun tochau in Poland; and Custrin, Stettin, Glogau, and Spandau. Behind the Oder in Prussia, all of which were well victualled and armed before the French army finally withdrew behind the Elbe.
