Battle of Ceresole 1544

Battle of Ceresole 1544

Post by jeztodd on Sat Sep 17, 2016 3:26 pm

Hoping to post a few pictures of a re-fight played recently using Impetus rules and armies created based on the battle description in Sir Charles Osman's old book "Art of War in the 16th Century.

Hoping the image below will show the battle lines from behind the French line - with the Swiss and French Gendarmes on the hill and Imperialist line in the distance





If you know this battle the French won the battle with the Swiss on the centre/right of the battle line but lost on the left against veteran German and Spanish troops - these then slowly retired from the battle when they realised the battle had been lost on the other flank.

Needless to say our refight did not follow this pattern.

More pics to come  ... hopefully.

Cheers Jez

Hi just following up with a second picture - after facing the flanks folding the French throw caution to the winds and fully advance with Gendarmes and Swiss pike. The picture shows the clash with the Spanish gendarmes in the centre - historically according to Oman this unit ran away.



Cheers Jez

Dear All - just trying to get the hang of posting pictures so grateful if you could let me know if these appear OK? Hopefully size not too big??

Anyway this final picture is from behind the Spanish / Imperialist line (some English Tudor appearing to be Italians) but you can still see the Gendarme charge.

Overall victory to the Imperialists as they finally crush the Swiss and French troops on the right.



Cheers Jez
