Notes on Game
The French passed on the opportunity to exploit their cavalry success.
This was because the cavalry had no infantry or artillery support and could do little against the infantry brigade in square. Had they charged the gunners, they would have retreated to the square.
It would take a long time to bring the French infantry and artillery forward, and the cavalry could easily have been pushed back and exposed to infantry and artillery fire.
