The thunderstorm has moved on and the light returns for the final act.
Only nightfall can save the Prussians from total defeat but Blucher is undeterred.

As always, there is so much to admire. But this time it is the explosion above. I tried it once with cuirassiers but never saw movement in it. That picture looks like a freeze frame…and white smoke is so much better for 19C gunpowder I now realise.

Thank you to all for their kind comments.

The project is coming to a close but I am preparing Quatre Bras as we speak.

Best wishes,
