German Heavy Cavalry Assaults Great Redoubt It is 2:00 p.m. on September 7th, during the battle of Borodino 1812, and for the past two hours, the 7th Division of Napoleon's French and Allied Cuirassiers has been standing under fire from the Russian artillery of the Great Redoubt * . The Saxon Heavy Cavalry Brigade of that division is eager to come to grips with their tormentors.
Major Friedrich Wilhelm Carl Loeffelholtz von Colberg and his proud Germans of Saxony, the Gardes du Corps, advance while Oberstleutnant Christian G?nther von Selmitz follows with the Zastrow Cuirassiers. The Gardes du Corps echelon push through the screening Russian light infantry J?gers and ride up and over the breastworks as Zastrow Cuirassiers force their way in through the rear of the Redoubt.
Die ?berlebenden Only forty-one officers and approximately five hundred men of the Saxon Heavy Cavalry Brigade survive to rally around their Standards, but the Great Redoubt has fallen to the Emperor of France, Napoleon Bonaparte, and his army.
