Battle report

Phase 1

Austrian forces enter in the scenario and they concentrate their best units against the farm on the left. Sardinians try to slow down the attack with cavalry and bersaglieri beyond the hedge

Phase 2

During the second part of the game Austrians conquer the farm but the Sardinians are capable to perform a tactical retreat without losing their artillery

Phase 3

At the 6th round new Sardinian forces enter while Austrians try to surround the enemy's left wing.  In the meanwhile a unit of Jager skirmishes against the Italian army.

Phase 4

The last rounds see the Sardinian counterattack. A unit of Bersaglieri attack on the flank the Austrian unit that is trying to surround the Italian forces while 1st brigade attacks the farm

The final result is a tie
