The French continued to pound away at the thin red line. Casualties mounted, particularly amongst the officers, and this is what ultimately determined the outcome.
On turn 10 of 11 the British commanding officer was hit for the third time. This wound proved fatal and dropped the army morale two more points. The same turn Captain Sharp was knocked out. At the beginning of turn 11, the British moral was on one. The French determined to eliminate Sharp's squad of riflemen to secure the victory. A volley from three groups of French line, 27 dice into total, resulted in four hits. A six and two fives were rolled. This left one rifleman with four shock. The unit broke and the game was over.
