Gévora: the debacle

The newly arrived French Dragoons are causing havoc amongst the Spanish cavalry located in the rearguard. The Reina Regiment has fallen back in front of the French dragoons, what are now menacing the flank of the Carabineros and the Algarve regiments.

The 100me de Ligne has broken through the Spanish battalions of the right flank. The Inmemorial and León infantry regiments have been broken, and the French battalions are now advancing against the Spanish rearguard.

At last Mortier has unleashed the Philippon's Brigade. The French battalions have climbed up the slope of the ridge, forcing the Spanish artillery to limber up and retire down the hill, whereas the Spanish battalions have deployed in line.

To be continued!
