KS Napoleon Game Saturday, Aug 8th 20:00BST

Post  Uncle Billy on Sat Aug 08, 2015 2:46 pm



The French line of communication runs along the Estrada Colimbra.  Wellington has decided to break it at the crossroads of Periera.  Cavalry patrols report the road junction is defended by two divisions and a large contingent of cavalry.  Nosey's force greatly outnumbers the defenders so capturing the town should not be a difficult task.  Recently, a local farmer was interviewed by one of Cooke's piquets patrolling his western flank.  The man told them of seeing a very large column of French moving east, the column of dust stretched to the horizon.  On receiving this news, Major Cramm sent a squadron of hussars west to investigate.  Moving first to the west and then riding nearly to Eixo, the cavalrymen found no Frenchmen and saw no dust column on this foggy day.  The major has concluded that this report was just another instance of civilian overreaction to what was probably no more than a French cavalry patrol.  Nevertheless, Cramm sent his report to General Cooke, who in turn, has sent it to His Grace.

The objective of the battle is to capture and hold the crossroads at Periera by the end of the fight.

with that amount and quality of cavalry the French must have brought all of Murat's Reserve Cavalry Corps!

PS: you are doing this on purpose aren't you? British only weekend when I'm not around... oh well... could be worse - you could be playing Austrians...

First of all - the guy who has been on KS-holidays for over a month now doesn't get a vote... he is busy collecting the limbs I chopped off while playing against him as Warsaw pact....

as for the treasure hunter... he may laugh now... once I figured out the scenario generator we shall turn his tears of joy into tears of sorrow Twisted Evil

haven't seen the next turn yet - but so far we are above a 1:2 kill ratio in favour of NATO... especially the Austrian Army distinguished itself!!! cheers

(The only contact the mighty Austrian army had was one recon unit of a few BMRTs stumbling across a tank turret emplacement - with the result of all shots fired being missed... by us...
