Quatre Bras

Stalemate on the Brussels Road, June 16, 1815

Screenshot of a game of Quatre Bras in progress.

At Quatre Bras, a wild battle occurred. Initially, the French IT Corps and Cavalry Corps face a lone division of Dutch Belgian infantry: but the cautious French advance is thwarted and British reinforcements begin to arrive. Throughout the day Ney, who is conducting the French forces at the battle, awaits the arrival of I Corps and conducts piecemeal attacks against an increasingly strong British position. The First Corps never arrives and, although the vital crossroads at Quatre Bras are taken briefly by French cavalry it is the British who hold the ground at the end of the day. Though the British have won the battle of Quatre Bras, the Prussian retreat makes the British position untenable. Wellington elects to retreat towards Brus�sels and previously surveyed defensive positions.
