Quite an interesting battle. I played as the British. The French advanced in the Center but took heavy casualties and were repelled giving me a 3-0 lead. After a brief cavalry skirmish on my left and another repulsed attack on my right thanks to the long range of the rifles and timely intervention of the guards the score went to 6-3. A few French infantry followed the remaining cavalry on my left into fire from the British line and foot artillery. Finishing off the battle 7-3 for the Brits.
I played a very interesting and suspenseful game as the British yesterday, only barely managing to win 7 - 6. A quite defensive game that relied on cautious advances and artillery fire. Unit of the match was the British Guard Heavy Cavalry, that managed to destroy two French light cavalries with a Cavalry Charge card, got reduced to 1 Block, retreated to the baseline, got replenished to three blocks and nearly defeated another French (heavy) cavalry unit before perishing in British infantry fire. This is a fun battle.
Read over and over again the campaigns of Alexander, Hannibal, Caesar, Gustavus, Turenne, Eugene and Frederic. ... This is the only way to become a great general and master the secrets of the art of war.~Napoleon
