The French are defending the important town of Peendevord which dominates the supply lines for their Army of the North. General Brune is charged with defence of the town at all hazards.
The Allied army is seeking to capture both the town and it's considerable military stores while also handing out a defeat to Brune's defending army.
Leading the force is the Grand Old Duke of York, assisted or otherwise by Lord Rawnsley and his ADC Lieutenant Colonel Bykleigh.
French artillery has proved largely ineffective in supporting the repeated attacks initiated by both their Light and the Heavy cavalry. Despite repeated charges and some successes neither has been able to blunt the British threat.
As ever with Black Powder 2 rules the fortunes of war ebbed and flowed, ever changing the shape of battle. Although the French cavalry were determined they just could not break their British opposite numbers. The British and Hanoverian infantry in the centre, with no real threat to their flank, were thus able to press home their numerical superiority. The French defended doggedly, but in the end were simply overwhelmed by firepower and the point of the bayonet!
