13 to 9 to the French. Wondered whether British should start first as they were the attacking force. A French bayonet attack card on the first turn on the left flank caused devastation to the British although it was a close finish with many French units down to 1 stand

French infantry faded back to use their dominant artillery to wear down the Allies. French victory 13-11 in nail biting finish.

Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.

14-13 Allies in a very close finish. Very bloody - French lost 57 blocks, Allies 59. Interestingly, only 1 Bayonet Charge and only 2 Scout cards the whole game.

Second game after yesterday, with players switching side. 13-8 Allies this time, and it wasn't really even that close. At the end, the French only had 1 unit left in the center and 3 1/2 on their left. French lost 60 blocks, Allies 47.

We played it twice. One victory for the French and another victory for the British. Salamanca is one of my favourite epic scenarios so far.
