The draw of the cards had not been kind to the forces of the Sublime Porte and by the time they started to deploy their infantry they came under heavy fire from the Republican forces and the first unit's moral breaks and they retreat .
However they reply causing casualties on the Bavarian Volunteers .
Finally another Joker is drawn and Miss Marples* is escorted out of the way so the Artillery can move up - but to late it seems.
Casualties are rising for the Sublime Porte Infantry and although the gun moves up the Republic Irregulars have worked around the left flank (left of picture) and open an accurate fire onto the infantry forcing them back.
The Sublime Porte infantry move up only to be met by the rout of the Border Guards who have been shot to pieces by the Naval Machine Gun and the Regulars .
End game ! , Mc Duff has saved the day and cut the enemy to pieces ! . The Sublime Porte force had problems deploying and were shot to pieces as they came up piecemeal and although the Republican forces took casualties they were not enough to damage their moral. Another great game using 'A Gentleman's War' rules. We will see how McDuff's military career progresses in the future.
*There are persistent rumours of Miss Marples involvement with the Secret Service , none of which have been proven .
