On the far eastern edge of the field, General de Latte's first squadron of Cuirassiers charged to contact with von Bauchschmerzen's Reiters while the second moved up in support. In the artist's rendering above, we can also see that the remnants of von Bauchschmerzen's first squadron of Reiters has rallied some distance behind the second.
Just before 1pm that afternoon, The Battle of Doltz entered a critical phase. While General von Bauchschmerzen kept a cool head in his wicker carriage and awaited the final Zichenauer assault, General de Latte's plans began to come unraveled as he rashly ordered a general advance to contact, where possible, across his front.
Meanwhile, de latte ordered his remaining men of the Ermland Garde to charge the Stollenian guns and Leib Grenadiers atop the norther ridge just before the village of Doltz.
While on the western end of the field, two of the remaining three companies of General de Latte's Flickenhoffer Fusiliers deployed into line and prepared to engage General von Bauchschmerzen's red-coated Hanseatic Regiment in a long-range firefight. Look closely in this photograph, and you'll see a drummer facing the wrong way in the middle distance. I suspect that the Young Master, who has been forbidden to touch Dad's soliders when he is alone, is behind this development. Clearly, he shares his father's quirky sense of humor.
To their left, de Latte's Provinces' Provisional Regiment prepared to break ranks and make their way through Hasenpfefferwald and, covered by the remaining Irish Grenzers and Warshawski Croats, attack the Stollenian infantry on the other side. Close by, General de Latte, Major di Biscotti, and their aides observed the machinations of their brigade.
By about a quarter past one, General de Latte's shattered squadron of hussars could be seen making their way to the rear of his position to lick their wounds and possibly return to the fray later.
