DBN at Fall-In Part 2

Spencer moves the Westphalian Guard Cheveaux-legere up the Old Smolensk Road toward Utitza. The Westphalian Infantry move through the woods as Ted watches.

The Westphalians push back the Russian Jagers. The artillery of both sides set up for a dual while the 1st and 2nd Hussars prepare to charge in the background.

A similar shot from behind the Westphalian lines. Sorry for the blur.

The final push is about to begin. In the foreground, Ron's Polish Lancers prepare to finish off the Guard Cossacks south of the mound as Terry's (Terry37) Poles finally get in the action as they close the doors on the last of the Moscow militia. Chris has brought uo the 1st Grenadier Division to hold themound as Frank's command continues to bludgeon their way forward to take the mound after successfully routing the Russian artillery. What's left of Ted's command between the mound and the village peck away at the flank of Frank's command, doing thier job remarkably well. Both ADC's are supporting the struggle on the mound. In the back, the Russians still hold the village and the Westphalian infantry are still mired in the woods as the Russian reinforcements plug all the holes.
This is essentially the way it ended. Utitza firmly in Russian hands while the mound is disputed but the Russians had more stands on it than the Poles. Casulaties were high, especially for Frank on the French side and Ted and Bob on the Russian, but the Russians hold on for a 10-9 win!
