Slightly preturbed, von Drosselmaier turned to the map of the area laid out on a table before him and began pondering the remaining possibilities on that part of the battlefield. Should he recall the company of jaeger? Should he have them move into the village along side the Leib Grenadiers? Or, should he keep them in their current position? He decided not to alter the jaegers' orders but to keep them where they are for another turn and see how things stand then.
The Stollenian general called for his clay pipe from a nearby orderly, made a few offhanded remarks to the young von Kallweitschen, and then turned in the direction of his foe, General von Drednoz, to see what the next phase of the battle might reveal. And across the field, the vile von Drednoz grinned devilishly in the saddle as he twirled his mustache between a forefinger and thumb. If the battle continued in this same way for another few turns, he thought to himself, it would be a good day a indeed.
