Zorndorf June (2015)

The Battle of Zorndorf August 25, 1758

We played this game in 10mm using amended WRG Rules.

The figures were supplied by Geoff K and Mark L (he has all the Russian units that took part in this battle and a number of the Prussian units as well)

This was a Prussian victory, a reverse of the historical battle.

The Russian right and left had or were collapsing and a end of day attack on the Russian centre by the Prussian Grenadiers had some success.
