After crossing the bridge the hussars scout ahead to the valley side.
The Jagers occupy Offenheim and the bridge.
Captain Kranze's company in Offenheim.
The Hussars push forward.
Captain Weingartner has the honour of holding the bridge.
"Mein Gott", the hussars make contact!.
Kazinsky's Uhlans have been encamped on the valley slopes watching the incursion and attack the outnumbered hussars with vigour.
The Blau Husaren flee for their lives.
Kazinsky's men surge forward recklessly.
And envelope Offenheim.
They are hot on the heels of the hussars.
But the Uhlans are repulsed by the Jager defending Offenheim.
Weingartner's company are attacked.
The Blau Husaren turn to fight.
All hell breaks loose around the bridge.
Caught between the village and the bridge the Uhlans take heavy casualties.
By now the Uhlans have had enough and fall back to the high ground to lick their wounds leaving Offenheim and the bridge in Altsteiner hands.
Kazinsky has had the sense however to send a messenger southwards with news of the invasion.
