Russo-Swedish Battle a near run thing

The Swedish center is moving forward.

Russian infantry over run a Swedish artillery battery as Swedish troops enter the village on their left flank.

Swedish Cavalry move the their left flank to counter the Russian Cavalry.

A view of the Russian left flank.

Although the Russians are taking many casualties, they are holding on.

The cavalry battle has raged for some time with the Swedish gradually gaining.

The Swedish infantry are running out of steam and are beginning to withdrawal.

The Swedish infantry have consolidated their position and wait a Russian attack.

On the Swedish left flank the cavalry have finally defeated the Russians, but they cannot save the day. The Russians won the battle but are in no condition to pursue the Swedish. A near run thing indeed.
