Title : Climax of the attack
Vandeleur's Light cavalry brigade 11th, 12th and 16th Light Dragoons swung from the Allied extreme left to appear about 2.30pm west of the crossroads. As Chris's hordes breasted the ridge the British charged and it was a beautiful sight! Alas, the Light cavalry enjoyed a fleeting glimpse of success as the 1st, 4th, 7th, 10th and 12th Cuirassiers smashed their way through 3 regiments plus ALL of the Brunswick cavalry who had the temerity to attack the BIG BROTHERS!!!
