The French left flank had been smashed with the bulk of their remaining forces being in the middle. Unfortunately for the Allies, their centre was in the process of overrun when the game ended. The game ended in a French decisive victory due to the sheer number of casualties inflicted. Unlike the real battle, the French had sustained heavy casualties and were not too far from losing themselves.
The historical scenario took us about 4 hours to play. The rules themselves are not very long being about 9-10 pages long. That being said the rules are reasonably complex with regards to actual combat. Our post game discussion came to the conclusion that battles are going to be bloody and are not going to be cake-walks. The map is pretty big and the board itself is a really nice looking board. Oh and there's no dice or cards! I look forward to playing this one again.
