A great feat of arms in British history - but without success.
But how knows about the charge of Bredow's Brigade of nearly 800 Prussian cavalry (Cuirassiers and Ulans) at the battle of Mars la tour?
They charged several lines of French infantry, artillery an cavalry and broke through them.
The Cuirassiers lost 7 officers, 189 men and 209 horses, the Ulans lost 9 Officers, 174 men and 200 horses.
The difference? The Germans succeeded in their task:-)
