The British held off the French in the village, despite becoming Disordered in every move it seemed ~
The Austrians on the Allied left were in disarray but the French just could not exploit their advantage ~
Enabling two of the Battalions to recover the hedge line ~
Finally the British cavalry commander rolled under his Command rating and the whole Brigade charged forward into the stationary French cavalry ~
The infantry on the French left finally charged the defenders of Peenedeforde, only to be held off in the first round of combat ~
The British defenders loose one Battalion in the next round, but hold onto the village despite severe French pressure ~
The Austrians continue to hold their line, but show no inclination to attack the French ~
With time running out after nine turns we decided on a draw as both armies were seriously weakened. The Allies held the line, just, but could not press home local advantages, while the French had shot their bolt and were in no state to press the attack! A great opening game we both felt. Bring on the next one on the 14th, when Jon will try his luck in the new location.
