After a couple of weeks delay we managed to complete our Dettingen game. The Franco Austrians are forced into desperate defence and use their cavalry to slow the allied army.
The two sides fire volley after volley at point blank range. The Prussian unit fails morale and stands unable to fire. They are forced back next turn.
The Franco Austrian feed more and more troops into the fight.
The pressure mounts as Allied cavalry moves up.
The Franco Austrian line collapses under the pressure. But as they fall back a squadron of Cuirassier reinforces the line
Backed by more infantry
In the final action of the day the allied drive the remaining Franco Austrians across the river. However with night drawing in and with only 2 regiments of infantry remaining at full strength and the light fading both sides draw back to recover.
This game used my War Game amendments and they worked well.
