Game Notes
Once one Italian brigade broke and ran the rout soon spread
All of their infantry brigades are running away
The gunners have no protection
The cavalry have two casualties, but must now try to save the guns
The battle would normally finish at this point
However we have to decide whether the guns can be saved
So there will be one more move to decide their fate
