Notes on Game

This is the first time I have ever had to take prisoners during a game

The Prussian infantry and cavalry rout was pinned by French infantry and cavalry

We have no rules for POW so had to agree what would happen

We agreed that the cavalry would escort the prisoners

As this happened just before nightfall we did not have to agree for how long
