My plan for this one was to stay on the hills and shoot it out, but having 2 Bayonet Charges in my opening card draw made that difficult. Once Brent brought up his 3 artillery to blast the hills, it became obvious that sitting still wouldn't work. So I charged down. This would have worked much better with some cooperative dice, and also so bad play on my part if forgetting the +1 die in a subsequent Elan card.

The French cavalry could have pulled this out of the fire, but the failure to eliminate the central artillery unit, and a British Rally changed a 3-3 situation to a 5-3 British victory. One of this scenarios that just needed better dice.
