Battle of Warburg

Most of you will recall I attended Charles Grant's on the weekend of the 24th/25th March there to refight the Battle of Warburg. In my enthusiasm for the game and because of the cut and thrust of the action I was so engrossed I forgot to take my camera out of the bag and take some photo's

Charles has taken pity on me and sent three which do nothing to give the game away :)

Suffice to say that the Heredity Prince managed to outflank the French army commanded by du Moy and launched an attack threatening the French left flank and rear - all the while waiting for the main army under Ferdinand to move up and attack the remainder of the French force.

Initially this looks like a game the French can't win and is certainly worthy of some refights, it was a bloody affair and was a near call for both sides on a number of occasions.

    1. The scenario is more finely balanced than it first appears and presents a real challenge to both players

    2. I'm hoping that this battle will feature in an upcoming CG Grant tome where I can read all about it...
