In the first game I had failed to get my troops moving and had fallen back on the defensive. This left the Hanoverians free to cross the Unstrut and assault with their superior numbers. If attackers are not halted by defensive fire, the actual assaults are resolved without the hardware advantage that would otherwise accrue to the Prussian Needleguns.
|Before the battle: view from the Hanoverian side. The wide brown felt strips are roads. The thinner strips are streams. The dark green area to the centre-left is marsh.|
|The 25th Regt lines the embanked part of the Unstrut, bringing the Hanoverians under intense fire. One Hanoverian artillery unit has been stripped away.|
|The 11th Gren Regt moves up in support. The second Hanoverian artillery unit is destroyed.|
