My French brought up the infantry in the centre and took both the village hexes of Borodino, but this cost them their Young Guard Unit and the Commander in that sector. The Russians brought up their Grenadier units and recaptured the village. After this the French were hardly able to activate in the leaderless centre, the cards just wouldn't come. I was obliged to attack on the flanks, mainly down the left which led to some success but Russian defence was stubborn. At 6-6 the Russian Grenadiers sallied out of Borodino to finish the game by eliminating the French artillery, which had been dormant for the latter part of the game. Very tight finish, a good scenario.

Grouchy eliminated the threat to the French left. Subsequently Eugene attacked the right. The town, garrisoned by elite troops was avoided until the end was in sight. French win 7-3.
