The Imperial Guard advance!
The Reserve artillery in the shape of one of the 12pdr Batteries had already exacted a heavy toll on Massena’s corps, it now steeled itself to stop the advance of the Guard.
Bernadotte’s Corps of Saxons were pushing harder on to Klenau and Kollowrath on the Austrian far right, the cavalry melee was still ongoing.
The casualties in Aderklaa mounted as the French brought their batteries to bear, the garrison took enormous punishment before it was decided to step back in good order and allow a replacement in to meet the Guard.
The battle on the Austrian left saw the French begin to push them back across the Russbach, this time the casualties would mount on Marmont’s Corps and what was left of the Armee d’Italie.
In the centre the Austrian’s were moving their Cavalry to help stop the advance of the Guard, it was still going to be a tight guess as to who would win this battle.
The culmination will be brought to you tomorrow.
