 Battle of Jena-Auerstedt - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The twin battles of Jena and Auerstädt were fought on October 14, 1806 near Naumburg in today's Germany, between the forces of Napoleon I of France and Frederick William III of Prussia.
Both armies were split into separate parts: Napoleon's main force at Jena consisted of Soult's IV Corps, Lannes' V Corps, Ney's VI Corps, Augereau's VII Corps, and the cavilry of Murat, about 96,000 men in total.
Nevertheless, it was a fierce battle, and Napoleon mistakenly believed that he had faced the main body of the Prussian army.

As is usual in the Campaign Series from Osprey, Jena 1806 covers the lead-up to war, how the armies were led and organized, battle orders of La Grande Armee and the Prussians and the two major clashes at Jena and Auerstadt.
Jena is pretty well documented historically and my personal opinion is that with the odds very much in his favour Napoleon could have won that without getting out of bed.

 Bernadotte 1806 - Is There a Case for the Defence?
Indeed, even after the battle of Jena was over, Napoleon initially refused to believe that this was the case and when he received news of Davout's remarkable victory at Auerstädt from Colonel Falcon, Davout's aide-de-camp, he responded with "Your marshal must have been seeing double." Auerstädt was never to feature as a Napoleonic battle honour.
Furthermore, Chandler, in his Jena 1806 (in which, incidentally, he is far less scathing about Bernadotte than in his Campaigns of Napoleon) also suggests that the topography of the Saale may have masked the sounds of firing from Auerstädt, whilst amplifying those at Jena.
It is worth noting that Foucart in Campagne de Prusse - Jena 1806 estimated that, combined with the drift of the battle towards Weimar, the earliest that the leading Division of I Corps could have arrived on the field was approximately 1230, followed by the second Division at approximately 1600.

 Chapter Retreat After a Lost Battle of On War by Clausewitz
According to the usual course the retreat is continued up to that point where the equilibrium of forces is restored, either by reinforcements, or by the protection of strong fortresses, or by great defensive positions afforded by the country, or by a separation of the enemy’s force.
Every lost battle is a principle of weakness and disorganisation; and the first and immediate desideratum is to concentrate, and in concentration to recover order, courage, and confidence.
If the strategic relations after a battle require that we should cover ourselves right and left by detachments, so much must be done, as from circumstances is unavoidable, but this fractioning must always be regarded as an evil, and we are seldom in a state to commence it the day after the battle itself.
