The is a battle is with the French II Corps supported by X Corps Prussian cavalry vs the Russian 1st Corps.

Victory went to the French under General de division St Cyr (won his Marshal baton).

In the Centre Shaken Russian Dragoons vs Shaken French Cuirassiers
Russian Infantry on the Right Centre
Russian Left Flank. This flank was under great pressure from the French Left and Centre (once the Russian Centre had gone)
The Russian Grenadiers and Cuirassiers rolling up the French Left

Dutch infantry on the French Left Centre (Yes that is a Westphalian Flag. My 2nd Westphalian acting as Dutch)
The French Centre advances against the Flanks of the Russian Left and Right Centre

While the French Left Flank was going it's Left Centre would hold long enough to allow the victorious French Centre to remove the Russian Left Flank (which was under way).
Then the French forces from the Centre and Right could then attack the Russian Right Centre and the village of Jakobovo.
So I could see the Russian 1st Corps having to withdraw before the French could cut off their retreat via Jakobovo, therefor the French had the day victory to General de division St Cyr.

A good day, for the Prussian left Centre and Left flank, whilst a good day for the Russo/Austrian Left Centre and Left flank.
A big battle, lots of troops and a result was achieved even using WRG!!!!
Well I be a ......... WRG and a result.
Maybe I should miss more meetings when they are using WRG, does not happen when I am there, says it all doesn't it.
