|The fight for the redoubt|
To the relief of the French, the second brigade of infantry now began to arrive from Neustadt. Led in person by the Comte, they stepped forward with purpose, heading towards the hill. The leading battalions crossed the partially completed works, reformed and then charged towards the Hessian grenadiers. After a brief resistance they fell back behind their supporting unit, Metternich. The Austrians stood their ground, fired a telling volley and then charged the leading French battalion. This too failed to stand and fell back to reform. Action here, below the hill became a fire fight. Up on the hill the Palatinate grenadiers were at last joined by their supports. Having fitted their plug bayonets, the grenadiers were unable to fire a volley, their only option was to charge. As the line swept forward the French fired a devastating volley which stopped the Palatinate troops in their tracks. When this was followed up by a charge, the grenadiers had to give ground and fell back behind the Austrians. Regiment Furstenberg levelled their muskets and fired as the French closed, but it was not enough to stop regiment Rouergue. Supported by regiment D'Humieres, Rouergue forced the Austrians back against the works. A final push and the works were recovered and the units of Von Grommitt's force were back where they started.
