As the second half of the battle unfolds, the Bleiherzen infantry assault has pressed the Grolsteiners back but had yet to break their lines.
The Bleherzen combined grenadier battalion advances to the charge.
The Colonel of the Grand Duchess's Liebguard encourages his boys to hold their ground by reminding them of their performance in the last battle...they have something to prove!
The Bleiherzen combined grenadiers charge the left of the Grolstein line and the Duchess's Liebguard deliver a stout volley in concert with the cannister fire of the "Red Battery" of the Grolstein artillery posted on the corners of the supply depot.
A tough fight but the grenadiers still win the melee and the Lieb Guard is forced to fall back loosing their Liebfahne in the fight.
Here a burly Bleiherzen NCO escorts the captured Grolsteiner ensign to the rear with the point of his spontoon for "encouragement".
Meanwhile on the left of the Bleherzen attack the cavalry is having a rough time of it...and are thrown back by the outnumbered but inspired Grolstein horse. It seems the Grolsteiners are intent on avenging their recent defeat at the Battle of Vier Arme
Even a full battalion of Bleiherzen infantry fails to break in to the monastery defended by a tenacious contingent of "White Croats".
Despite being pushed back twice by the advancing enemy, the Grand Duchess' Liebguard rallys and retuns to the fray delivering a volley that finally breaks the assault of the Bleiherzen grenadiers. In the distance Konrad Jahde's regiment of musketeers delivers a crushing volley.
In the closing moments of the battle the men of the Konigreich loose heart and are forced back, giving a win to the Grand Duchess! ...and as the sun set a party of the Duchess' Uhlanen come upon a young ensign carrying the white Liebfahne of the Duchess' Lifeguard who escaped in the confusion of the Bleiherzen retreat...a promotion is in store for that young lad!
