Reported in the London Illustrated News today, looks like the French and the Prussians had a jolly little dust up.
The forces met across a crossroads town of... well, I can't pronounce that, dashed foriegn lingo, it's so Passe!
Anyway, accoring to this, the Prussian Cavalry arrived first to meet the French deployed in line along a series of shallow ridges and holding the town.
The Prussians deployed their horse artillery, who immediately fired on the French line, whilst the Cavalry tried to find the end of the French line to their right.
At this point the Prussian's first infantry division arrived, and upon hearing the sound of the guns, marched straight at the settlement.
Where they tried to shift the plucky French Chasseurs from the buildings with Jagers, when this failed, the whole division infantry from the Division was dragged into the fight, but tenasciously the French held on.
Extra Prussian brigades and division marched to the sound of the guns, feeding their infantry into the attack and their artillery into the gun line.
Meanwhile, the French right flank failed to rouse itself time and again and failed to swing in to support their collegues!
But on the extreme left a French brigade , supported by a division of French Heavy cavalry, moved forwards to threaten the Prussian right and roll up the developing gun line.
Which was held off by a valient counter-charge by two Prussian cavlary charges, which forced the French back on their lines, as two brigades from the Wurttenberg Division finally arrived and swung their guns into action.
As night fell, the French resistance around the township crumbled and the Prussian artilley line was able to clear the way for their infantry to seize the highground.
Looks like the Froggies took a bashing from the Prussian there!"
It was a good Black Powder game, corps level with divisions rather than brigades, and based for Volley and Bayonet; first time we'd tried street fighting. Sorry I forgot my camera and had to take these on my mobile!
