The good Major waits no more. . .

Stollenian dragoons charge the enemy hussars from the Electorate of Zichenau on the northeastern corner of Pickelhaubewicz, hoping to drive them off and attack Major von Hirschbiegel's infantry, who currently hold the village, from behind.

Let's get back to the Action at Pickelhaubewicz, shall we? When last we left the action, battle was raging fiercely around this small postal and coach stop along the road toward the Stollenian frontier. The Stollenian 4th Dragoons had come to grips with Zichenau's 11th (Prinz Albrecht's) Hussars just to the northeast of the village, ensuring a sharp cavalry melee, while Major von Hirschbiegel had strengthened his positions within the four buildings that comprise Pickelhaubewicz. To the east of the village, Stollen's Colonel von Grundig pulled his Jaeger zu Fuss back to take up position on the left flank of the Von Laurenz Musketeers. And on the heights overlooking Pickelhaubewicz, his half-battery of foot artillery awaits orders to fire on the village church again. What results will fate dole out on the fields of Mars to the respective combatants? Stay tuned to find out!

You'd best get that second squadron of dragoons into the fray. Piece-meal attacks usually fail.

Fritz: You have no idea how ironic your comment is. Just wait till we finish die rolls and Stokes posts the latest developments!
