Battle of Poitiers - English Activation 7

Salisbury is activated and missiles rain down on the Genoese Crossbowmen and disorders them. A second longbow unit also fires at the same crossbow unit and eliminates them! More Crossbowmen are disordered as the Longbow unit holding the corner of the hedge open fires. The English attempt to activate Edward and succeed.

The dismounted men-at-arms advance towards the Genoese and take reaction fire as a result and are disordered. This allows King Edward to make a flanking run with his mounted troops, he charges into the crossbowmen! The already disordered crossbowmen are eliminated and Edward gets to continue his attack and shocks the dismounted men-at-arms for no result. More troops move up to attack the French footmen on their flank which disorders them and causes them to retreat one hex. The Hobilars fire their crossbows again and have no effect (again).

The light horse on the far right flank continue to attack the disordered foot unit for no result.

The English finish their turn by activating C. de Buch and pulling his troops back across the hedge so they can ready for the advancing French.

Play then passes to the French after the English fail to activate Warwick.
