The English were fortunate as the cavalry were on hold orders and could not change orders throughout the game. The red coats were able to shoot up the heavy cavalry men with negligible loss to themselves. The French were not so lucky. Given an assault order they marched into the withering fire of the men in bearskins and suffered accordingly. They did manage to win a mele, but Austrian canister snuffed out the survivors. The French brigade ultimately broke with over 50% casualties.
