Alan and I picked up where we left off last month, on the road to Porto. This scenario, the rearguard battle around Grijo, is the second of two linked scenarios in Jonathan Jones O'er the Hills Peninsular War scenarios book written for OTH. The set up was similar, same rolling landscape, a road down the centre and a village in the middle with the French in retreat. But this time the British are pouring in from every side, making the French retreat very difficult!
Here are a few photos from the action but the entire battle report can be seen here, if you are interested in how it all worked out.

Nice. I always enjoy your reports, figures, and terrain.

Thanks, Leadjunky, I'm glad you enjoyed it. It was an interesting fight and a tricky one to get right for the French!
