Game 1
Mark McG (French): 8
Kandras78 (Allies): 5

After the initial move, the French came out on their right for what turned out to be a protracted struggle that absorbed all efforts for most of the game. Losses were primarily from this flank, with the French infantry under Fery having the best of it, and the French cavalry repulsing the Austrian horse and Cossacks. Ultimately the total loss of the French cavalry, Margaron, the artillery and one Line were the extent of the French losses, all from this flank.

Melle brought the French Light across to reinforce, and effectively dropped the Russian Light infantry that was dangerously close to Telnitz, with the depleted French line in occupation.

With the flank exhausted, and the score 7:5 to the French (so 5 losses each, and the 2 banners for no Allies in villages), the attention turned to the Left flank. As the Allies maneuvered in closer, the French set a surprise, Forced Marched across the stream for an ambush on a Russian Light, which stole the game.
Convinced I had lost this game when Margaron's cavalry suffered a disaster.

Sometimes a single battle decides everything and sometimes, too, the slightest circumstance decides the issue of a battle. There is a moment in every battle at which the least manoeuvre is decisive and gives superiority, as one drop of water causes overflow.~Napoleon
