Cromwell helps the French

The latest scenario uploaded to my website is a prelude to the Battle of the Dunes. Set in 1657 it involves an uneasy alliance between the French and the English Commonwealth attempting to break the Spanish siege of Ardes in the Pas-de-Calais.

As the English Commonwealth troops attack, James, Duke of York is leading British Royalists to the aid of the Spanish.

When we played this game some time ago, the Duke of York led his lifeguards in a dashing attack on the French cavalry. This ended with him being captured by the French and led to a follow-on game in which the British Royalists and Spanish attempted to rescue him as he was being escorted to Paris.
