Wallhof - Moves 4,5 and end-game....

Move 4

On the Polish left flank, the cossacks attack the Swedish musketeers on the edge of the woods, while the cavalry melee continues - the Swedes have committed a fresh cavalry regiment attacking the Poles in the flank
 in the centre the Swedish infantry stand firm, although coming of worst in exchange of vollies with the Polish german infantry and fire from light cannon
On the Polish right flank the cavalry melee continues - the Swedes have committed a fresh cavalry regiment attacking the Poles in the flank here as well.
 Move 5

The cavalry melees on both flank are lost by the Poles, outnumbered and attacked in the flank, they rout with the cossacks and others trying to hold off the pursuing Swedish cavalry. The Polish german infantry in the centre now find themselves outmatched by the Swedish infantry.



A victory for the Swedish army

---oXo---
