French have a lot of power in this one, and a good flanking movement in train at start. French cards weren't much, but enough to get things rolling.
Played with the GM rule as from the book for this one, due to the Stewart's Folly special rule. In the event, the 2 GM tokens were used to destroy 2 French units, and then the French Cavalry Charge broke the Spanish wing, and destroyed the Allied Heavy Cavalry. The Allies retreated, and it was a matter of manoeuvring the French to destroy the Allies piecemeal. At the very end an Allied Bayonet charge might have set the French back, and took out 1 LN with 4 swords, but French cavalry has done in 6 units by that stage, and an admirable defense and battling back by Girard sealed the Allied fate.
