|Table size 6' x 5'. North to top of course.|
|The French attack commences under Roy's direction.|
|It appeared Roy's intention was to give the rules a stern test by going straight into the attack.|
Were those assault columns (foreground) heading around my flank or would they strike the Kleine Berg?
|The French dragoon brigade hovered west of Fausterlitzen awaiting developments.|
|The columns of high quality Legère turn towards the hill. |
The Austrian cuirassiers set off to threaten their flank.
|Ouch! The French columns smash into the Austrian infantry on the Kleine Berg |
and Tricolores are soon flying over the ridge.
|An overview from the same turn. French pressure is strong across the table, |
and the Austrians are losing units.
|The French have triumphed on the Kleine Berg, but an Austrian cuirassier regiment turns back |
and drives one of the French battalions westward
|On their left flank the Austrians have also lost units and now the French Dragoons are closing in.|
We called it here, announcing a French victory.
|I set up the opposing armies in the same deployment we used in the first game.|
|This time I deployed skirmishing infantry ahead of the attacking French columns.|
|Once again, the dragoons deploy on the French right.|
|Here they come! French artillery and skirmisher fire took a toll on the |
2 Austrian battalions on the front slope of the Kleine Berg...
|...with this result. One Austrian battalion routed, taking the other with it.|
Now the 2 Hungarian battalions moved up from the reverse slope and braced for impact.
|The French dragoons were a little more active under my control, |
and steadily pushed back the defending Grenzers and hussars.
|Once again, it was crunch time on the Kleine Berg, and once again the French columns were successful.|
|The Austrian battery is surrounded, and the final battalion of Hungarians |
has suffered heavily and is about to be routed.
|Overview - the Austrians are on the back foot across the table.|
|Just the artillery to mop up and the Kleine Berg will be an Austrian-free zone.|
|Just about the only Austrian success was their triumph against the French hussars on the French left.|
Still, with 2 cuirassier regiments against one regiment of hussars, this was hardly unexpected.
Another solid French victory.
|The French artillery had done sterling work for the whole game. A close up of one of their batteries.|
