week three, day three

Day three is now in the books. Since the last post, the French have continued to push back the Dutch/Belgians, though it has taken much longer than expected. The Dutch/Belgians have been stubborn in their defense. But the picture at right shows the allied cavalry about to be driven back by Lancers of the Imperial Guard.

Half way through the day we set up the second half of the battle. This shot shows the very beginning moves of the second phase. The French are being much more aggressive this time around.

Here is a view of the battlefield from the east. General Picton's fine British brigades can be seen lining the road, screened by the famous 95th Rifles. Things should really heat up when the fighting resumes tomorrow morning.
