The British Player chooses not to use the two extra turns and the Battle ends in a British victory
The turning point of the Battle was 1830 hours. The French player intended to unleash his Light Cavalry and Cuirassiers upon the British left flank as soon as the Hanoverian Landwehr Brigade in square had been routed by his horse artillery ( if this happened the British left flank would have been vulnerable with only the Brunswick Artillery and inferior Brunswick cavalry to oppose them) However although the Hanoverians were routed and Picton wounded Kellerman was also wounded and the Cuirassier Brigade routed under artillery fire from the Brunswick artillery(A series of bad morale rolls) . The French also lost control of Boose wood which was now disputed with each side controlling one section.
