The Austrian Commander Benedek aka James plotting his opening moves.
The opening went to the Italians and the General sent his cavalry out to find the edge of the massed Austrians in the center.
This battle saw some of the longest phases we've experienced in playing Piquet. Also of note the bulk of the initiative went to the Austrians in the game and they still ended up losing. That's why we like Piquet. It's unpredictable and nail biting at times but the results never seem unrealistic.
