For this week's game we were joined by Keith Flint, who is the author of the Shadow of the Eagles rules that we're using. Always helpful to have the writer on hand if there are any questions. We went with a simple set-up that saw both sides attacking on their lefts and refusing their right.

Things were going well for the Coalition units in the early and middle parts of the game. This all changed though when the Russian's defending the village on their right decided to attack the Germans opposite them.
They fell prey to some German cavalry and this led to the line being rolled-up and the French emerging as slightly unexpected winners.
