The British have to exit in this one (and I don't like exit scenarios).

The Portuguese LT headed for the exit, so with no time to waste, the French cavalry charged forwards. The HC just moved up, but over on the Right the LC rode down the RL (1-0), and press the LN off the ridge and into square.

The English stalled on the exit, and the HC moved into attack around the redoubt (fieldworks). the second RL croaked and the French cavalry pressed to the exit. A counter charge by the English cavalry chased off the HC, but was beaten back and on the Right the French cavalry broke the English line.
The English LC was eliminated (4-0), and the French LC entered the redoubt.

From here, a desperate struggle ensued between the French cavalry trying to block the bridge, and the English & Portuguese infantry trying to set up the exit en masse. In the event the French prevailed, though it took a final bayonet charge to finish it 6-2.

French: 6
Allies: 2
