Principals of war
French (boo) against British (Huzza)
A wise man once told me that the secret to POW as well as all war game rules is to guard your flanks
what follows is a total disregard of those wise words
Pictures are in no specific order
The battle field was cut in half by steep hill with a large wood joined to one side and a town opposite .
the British decided to garrison the town and attack on the right, cavalry was to the left of town as flank guard and behind the town (as guarding nobody)
the attack on the right went in and the French flanked with cavalry and started to roll up the line
The nobody guard rushed over and pushed back the French cavalry but the damage was done
and the British line crumbled.
The French attack was from their right which found the British garrison to tough a nut to crack
Honours to the French and a coffee and biscuit meeting at Horse guards for the British CO
Frustrating but enjoyable
