This battle had 3 objectives2 minor objectives: Schneiders & Hampton Muhle.1 Major objective: Dornbusch Bauernhof
Taking and holding a minor objective for a short period would give you posession. You could then move on. The main objective was the main course. It required substantial holding. Like all of our meetings, this was full fog of war with no map contacts. All communication was via in-game courier.
We started off by issuing the command for Rotar to head to the eastern objective while Panzerde would take and hold the main objective. Panzerde had the main forceThe remaining minor objective was for myself. I would then travel south and join our main force at the main objective. Rotar would move west and also join us.......That is how we planned it....I set off for the Northern object with my cavalry. I went at a steady pace. Panzerde took the road while Rotar cut through forest.I reached the northern objective after cautiously viewing it with my trusty spyglass. I found it empty. Not an enemy in sight! I secured it and started my move south to meet up with my main force.I used the main road southward. I ordered a cavalry brigade to trail my main force in-case the enemy followed. Rotar took and held the eastern objective. It was also empty....Panzerde found the main objective, Dornbusch Bauernhof also empty....No enemy in sight....Panzerde organised his division expecting the enemy to come from the north. I sent my cavalry to the west of the objective. My intention was to keep it hidden.The intention was to have Rotar join up with us at the main objective. However he was surprised by the French general Tuna. Tuna smashed into Rotars flank causing some of his artillery to get separated from his main force. Rotar turned to face the aggressor.Meanwhile a flag was spotted coming towards the main force....Was it Rotar? was it the enemy? My trusty spyglass what I already knew. It was the French! They had finally turned up!I sent my cavalry NW of the objective. I tried to keep them out of sight. They were fresh. They would come in handy.The battle was raging it the objective. Panzerde had a great position. The enemy could not break through. After hours of fierce fighting the French tried to flank our right. We saw it. It was time to use my hidden cavalry. They were eager. They were fresh. We moved using cover by way of a road. We would fall upon the enemy without warning.Rotar managed to hold the enemy. He stopped Tuna from joining the main French force and perhaps even stopped a flanking move from Tuna. That would have been serious. However Rotar was also tied up. I wanted him to flank the main French force. My cavalry managed to reach its location without meeting any opposition. We were fresh. Rested. Eager for French blood! Panzerdes forces had created a small pocket....We were enticing the enemy in..Closer.Rotar pushed north. He started to push the French Tuna back. My cavalry were ready. We spotted artillery to our east. Unprotected. Easy target for our eager cavalry. The battle ended here.If you look at the results below. You will see that we made the French pay dearly!
