Situation was reversed here, with Brent jockeying forwards, and bring up artillery. The pounding of a LT convinced me to take a reverse slope position with the infantry, a fatal error. The English Heavy Cavalry charged home on the French artillery, lifting it off the board. (0-1)

The only French action was on the Right, which was all the cards I had, and a French Line and Light Cavalry tried to divert British attention, which managed to eliminate the Horse Artillery, but lost the Line and Leader. (1-3)

British brought up their infantry with a Forced March, then a Bayonet charge, that scored 7 hits and 1 retreat out of 8 dice. (1-4) No British losses, and the French reaction was woeful. Then another Bayonet Charge. That finished the Centre off. (1-5)

Not France's finest hour.

After initially clearing my artillery field of fire for a bombardment (that missed completely), the French jockeyed around looking for an opening. A Bayonet Charge didn't draw the Guerrilla Marker, so the Swiss charged up the Left flank and eliminated a opposing Swiss unit. Spanish reaction was flat, so the Swiss pressed on, eliminating Heavy Cavalry is unpredecented style, and pushing up the hills. A French Swiss was lost here.

The French cavalry then went up the middle, taking out the centre artillery guns and putting infantry into square. The Spanish responded with their own Cavalry on their Left flank, which successfully charged over a French Heavy Cavalry before meeting their match against the French Light Cavalry. At this point it was 4-2 (IIRC).

Further fighting in the centre finished off of the French Swiss on the Left Flank, and more Spanish cavalry came up on the Right, ultimately the French square here, with supporting musketry and French cavalry finished off the Spanish cavalry and final score was 7-4 to the French.
Dupont saves himself and his men from a tragic surrender and imprisonment.
