Porto 1809

 Quick report of the battle of Oporto, Soult entrenched in the city vs Wellington in teh other side of the river Douro. The canny english attacked the isolated french in their right, attracting and routing the enemy cavalry too, until only the town garrison remainded. 
Then it was a lengthy job of house by house clearing till only one french unit remained. The british player then decided to concede 'cause it was my birthday, but with only one french unit against several briritsh the outcome left litte to imagination. That last unit killed three british ones on his own tough, true valour born out of desperation!
Congratulate the british for a game well played.
