GDB Game continued

Turn four- The French enjoy some initial success when 2nd and 3rd battalions of the 4th Legere are able to cross bayonets with the Luneberg Light Battalion. The Lunebergers are routed which creates a dangerous gap in the allied line. Supported by the two battalions of the 100th Ligne, Jamin is poised to roll up the allied right flank.

Turn five- While Jamin reforms his infantry on the French left, Husson's brigade charges up the ridge held by three Brunswick battalions and a foot battery. Two of the battalions and the battery are sheltered behind a stone wall which will prove to be very helpful. When the smoke from the Brunswick volleys cleared, all four French battalions had been halted. The column on the extreme right of the French attack is even forced to retreat.
