The American strategy was to pin the two flanks with cautious attacks and to make their main effort on the town of Germantown itself. Below is a picture of the elite British units that held the right flank.
The action began with the Continentals attacking the town in force.
Within two turns, the men in blue were involved in a vicious mele at a stone wall to the south of the town. The action swayed back and forth and casulaties mounted.
To relieve pressure on the center, the Americans launched a secondary assault on the British right. The grenadiers couner-attacked and were routed in a truly stunning outcome.
The photo below shows the action on the British right, just prior to the rout of the grenadiers.
On the British left, a large force of colonial militia attempted to hold down the Hessian contingent. While they were successful in tying down a large portion of the allied force, they were eventually overwhelmed and driven from the field. This was the one bright spot for the men in red.
