|Set-up 1. Pampitz in the foreground, with the Austrians defending Mollwitz in the background.|
|Set-up 2. Römer's cavalry near Grunningen waits to strike the Prussian flank.|
|The cream of the Austrian cavalry await their moment.|
|Battery Dohna prepare to bombard the Austrian line.|
|The game starts, and Römer's charge goes in. He has good initial success against the weak Prussian cavalry.|
But the Prussian players are already putting together a strong infantry flank guard of grenadiers.
|On the other flank Berlichingen strikes hard at the inferior Prussian cavalry across the Kleiner Bach.|
The Prussians put up a stiff fight, enabling their infantry to form a secure line on the other side of the stream.
|The Prussians are moving infantry to the flanks to fend off the Austrian cavalry.|
This has weakened their centre which has lost formation somewhat. The Austrians are daring to hope.
|All to play for, but Paul and Craig seem a bit concerned with the odds against Römer.|
|It turns out they were right. History is repeated as the supporting Prussian grenadiers|
stand fast and blast the attacking cavalry with musketry. Römer's horsemen are decisively seen off.
|Harrach marches the second line infantry out to fill the gap in the Austrian left flank.|
In the far background the Austrian right wing cavalry can't breach the Prussian infantry flank guard.
An indecisive Austrian hand hovers over their dragoons.
|The Prussian infantry reforms and begins to move forward in a solid-looking line.|
|The crunch approaches. Can the Austrians hang on, or will Prussian quality triumph?|
|At last the 2 lines are in musket range, and the Prussians are soon in the ascendent.|
Note the orange dice behind the Austrian line, indicating 'weakened' units.
|And they're gone. Harrach's units rout and the Austrian left flank is wide open.|
At this point the Austrians had also lost more than half their units. A Prussian victory!
