Jim, Sean, and Ed commanded the Anglo-Portuguese forces against Phil, Jay, and Fred commanding the French. It was a close, bloody affair with the Anglo-Portuguese winning 16 points to 14 points with 1 victory point not in control of either side. The victory points were awarded for enemy units destroyed (1 flag each) and for access roads (5 roads) controlled. The Anglo-Portuguese had 14 French flags and 2 roads while the French had 12 British flags and 2 roads. One road was not controlled by either side.
The Anglo-Portuguese were on the attack and outnumbered the French.
Here are some of the pictures Jim took during the fighting:
|A British light cavalry regiment, part of Sean's primarily Portuguese left flank, attacks a square of French infantry of Jay's French right flank command.|
|The main attack by the Portuguese under Sean on the left flank against Jay's French.|
|On the Anglo-Portuguese right flank, Ed led a British command against Fred's French force. Ed's objective was to take the access road that led off of battlefield. He was finally successful at the end of the fight.|
|Fred, the French left flank commander dolefully watches as Ed's infantry and cavalry beat up and push back his poor French. Fred did have some success early in the fight but couldn't stop Ed's slow steamroller.|
|On the Anglo-Portuguese left, Jim's two heavy cavalry regiments add some weight to Sean's attack. Sean lost three out of four left flank cavalry regiments but severely punished the French cavalry and infantry in the process.|
