Blucher AAR - The Battle of Piave

This Blucher AAR is for a game we played dating back to May this year! it covered the Battle of Piave, 8th May 1809 which was fought during the war of the 5th Coalition. It's another scenario from the 'Oldmedrum Wargames Group', these guys scenarios are amongst the best presented I've seen!

The game ended with a French victory but it was bought at great cost as their left was virtually wiped out. These soldiers sacrifice was not in vain as they kept the Austrians attention locked in that area allowing for their plan to develop and the French right to run rampant to secure them victory!

The French left charge the Austrians in and near the town of Barco and get a bloody nose!

The Fench left start the massive task of crossing the Piave, Gouchy's cavalry can already be seen advancing on the town of Cimadolo and the Austrian left flank...

Eugene lead the French centre forward against the Austrians defending the dike pinning them as Grouchy's cavalry ride wantonly behind the Austrian line...
