7YW, Prussians V Austrians with the objectives being a combination of capturing town sectors and destroying enemy Divisions.
Numbers were on the side of the Austrians and the Prussians, they had quality.

Over on the other side the Prussian attacks on the town were largely unsuccessful but the Austrians here were in no shape to do anything other than to defend the town they still held.
The cavalry on both sides was now a spent force. Casualties were mounting in the infantry divisions too. There was now a gap in the Prussian lines on their left flank and as the Austrians advanced, at this critical moment, their Corp commander was killed and had to be replaced. The replacement CO advanced on the gap hoping to gain the now undefended town on this side of the battle. But it was all too late. Nightfall had arrived and there would not be anymore fighting on this field today.
In the end it was a marginal victory to the Austrians.
An enjoyable game and great way to spend an evening.
Thanks guys. Thanks to Adrian for providing almost everything.
