The field as a whole. Rupert (Lee) hoping to sweep away my left wing, both sides going hammer-and-tongs in the centre, and my loaded right developing a strong attack. General Fairfax took Byron's horse down, aided by some flanking shot. The firefight and push of pike in the centre was strongly maintained on both sides.

My right: Tarrington's Regiment of horse took out Huxley's dragoons, and Mason's bravely faced Rupert's Lifeguard of foot. General Hopton tried a wide outflanking move, but there were too many Roundheads in the way, and he was badly mauled on the retreat.

Ramsey's foot faced both Newcastle's (elite) and Knox-Shaw's: an unexpected Parliamentary victory.

Fairfax and Cromwell both attacked against the odds and succeeded.

The climax in the centre. Shortly after this, Royalist morale went shaky and Lee conceded.

Keeping the Horse and Foot fairly close together was very successful today; a few volleys to shoot the enemy horse up before we charged them worked wonders.
