The Russian cavalry were caught out at the wrong end of the field. They are now racing to the other end to help out.

Russians form square as the Bavarian cavalry prepare to charge.

At the other end the Bavarian infantry advance on the Russians.

In the centre the allies advance in the face of the guns.

The big push by the allies through the centre.

The battery is now in danger of being over run.

At the other end the cavalry are still fighting it out .
