Hill has rallied his shaken infantry brigades

They are still disordered but will be able to advance next move

Game Notes

The French are slow to react to the Spanish advance

They have broken Beresford, but still have two full corps attacking him

Picton is unable to fight his way into Toulouse, but Wellington is about to change his orders to attack

Hill has rallied his broken brigades and will soon resume his attack across the bridge
