I won this one yesterday with the Austrians, 16 to 11. The main assault on Essling was helped by the fact that my opponent did not draw any first strike Combat card. The Frenches were committed to controlling the villages at any cost. Thus they kept on sending infantry units in Essing, just to be ground the next round by Austrian combined attacks. I gained 3/4 medals this way that in the end were decisive.

Austrian victory by 4 banners. The Austrian right flank was unstoppable, ground down the French and at the end took 3 of the Aspern hexes after which the cavalry unit was able to pass through and mop up. An attritional fight in the centre and Austrian left used up the French cavalry and the Guard, and there wasn't much left to halt the final Austrian advance. JB & Colin v CK & Glen.
