|The battlefield from the south-east, with Ostrolenka top left,|
and the starting units of both sides in position.
|The French emerge from Ostrolenka, but find themselves a little over-faced as the |
Russians come into view attacking over the 'sandy hills'.
|The Russian left wing infantry form into columns, whilst the Russian Dragoons charge the French right flank.|
The French right wing infantry unit promptly forms square, and the Dragoons fall back with heavy casualties.
|Here we see Savary's division has arrived (left), and Volkonski's cavalry with its supports to the right.|
The French Dragoons move though the woods to hold off the Russians whilst the French infantry hurry on to Ostrolenka.
|The French Dragoons are outnumbered with the arrival of Sedmarkatzki's forces from point B, but they delay the Russian cavalry long enough for Gazan's infantry to form up east of Ostrolenka and divert Sedmarkatzki's infantry.|
|After about 10 turns (I wasn't counting), it is clear the French hold on Ostrolenka is secure. The Russians have failed to achieve their objective, but the French have been forced onto the defensive and the Russian forces are largely intact.|
