Camp Cromwell 24/11/05
Prussians (MarkO, Barrie & SteveP)
Austrians (SteveJ & PeterW)
The Prussian attack concentrated on the right of centre, the infantry & grenadiers going in after a short artillery bombardment while the cavalry guarded their flanks.
The Austrians defended well and counterattacked on their right.
It was a close run thing - when the Austrians failed morale the prussians were only a unit off a test themselves.
The rules mods worked well - in particular the command system seemed a sucess. Some tweeks were suggested to the flank/rear attack rules and we got some ideas for further refinements of the command system.
FOW on the desert table:
Mariusz's Polish armour
in a free for all.
Your correspondant was otherwise occupied, but Mariusz won comfortably.
Saturday afternoon at Barrie's (Stalingrad).
Tuesday at Fort Floriet (Maybe US v. Italy in Sicily)
