Plattdorf (continued)

DAY 2
 
The cavalry melee over on the Lorrraine left flank with the VFS Uhlans edging it over two bounds but both sides have to retire and regroup. 

 
Over on the Lorraine right, their infantry trade fire with the VFS blue coats
 
As other white coated infantry line the centre hills
 
Some watch the VFS troops emerge from between the hills
 
Then a crashing volley emits and the VFS Colonel in the lead with another officer are casualties for foolishly leading the attack
 
A second volley causes more damage and the VFS troops recoil
 
Both sides artillery now join the action


 
And infantry casualites start to mount
 
A white coat Colonel is the unlucky first casualty in his regiment
 
Promptly followed by more men as they are enfiladed form the hills opposite
 
Supports arrive besides the infantry lines facing each other across the wooden bridge

As Lorraine infantry form line in front of Plattdorf village
 
The newly arrived VFS infantry's first volley has devastating effect on the white coats opposite
 
As the head of another VFS column receives artillery fire
 
The battle will continue during the course of this week as and when I get the odd hour - so far, it hangs in the balance with neither side getting a breakthrough.
