Battle of Senones ( 7 )

As the British cavalry raced back towards safety, their panic became infectious and started to ripple through the surrounding Cohorts. The 1st Cohort of Tungrians halted their advance and started to fall back. The threat of having two enemy squadrons on their flank was too much for them to stomach.

Ah yes, the insidious, soul destroying battle losing effect of Panic. It spreads through the ranks so suddenly, so easily. One moment you have a fighting army, the next, in the blink of an eye, that army can be a routing rabble. it can be scary stuff (boom boom). I remember it well.

Dewolfus got off lightly.
