Photo 3, 4 and 5: Klein’s dragoons attacked the right of Gallitzin’s position, only to be countered and driven off by the Russian cavalry led by the “mighty” Moscow dragoons.
Meanwhile, the French 14th dragoons charged and broke a Russian foot battery. They rallied and charged the St. George cuirassiers, who were supported by the Polish uhlans. It was a close run thing (all rolled a 1!), but the 14th dragoons were broken.
The French infantry slowly moved through the woods and debouched on the other side to attack Dokhturov’s small division, while throwing out squares to protect the right flank from cavalry attack. Finally the French had some success, Desjardin’s 17e légère pushing back Dokhturov’s Moscow musketeers.

The last hurrah (and laugh) was to go to the Russians who decided to attack the French infantry squares that were protecting Augereau’s right flank with the Little Russia cuirassiers and 'the mighty' Moscow dragoons (photo 10 & 11). The dragoons broke the square of 1/44e ligne (of course!) and then attacked two squares, of the 1/14e ligne and 2/44e ligne, but were forced to retreat. They rallied easily once they reached the Russian front line once more. The cuirassiers were not as successful and were pushed back, although they too rallied.
