Played the final version, and it is a tense standoff of cavalry in the centre. Eventually I blinked and attacked with the Russian cavalry, which were hopeless. The Grand battery I formed also did precious little, and the Allies were down 0-4. The French cavalry rolled like demons and took down everything in their way.

Then an unusual event (at least for me) was a parade of 3 or 4 Forced Marches. The Wurtemburgers came from the back, threw back the French cavalry, marched again to kill the Horse artillery and threw back the French cavalry against against the river, then marched again to slaughter them all and capture a bridge. Kellerman and Oudinot fell on the field, surrounded by dead horses. The Wurtemburgers never got a scratch. Remarkable!

Allied win 8-7. French dead were cavalry, horse artillery and 2 leaders. Bridge VP was the decider.

Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.
