  1. I'm looking forward to the battle reports.

    1. Mark Cordone,

      Gary Sheffield and I hope to fight the two linked battles in about a week or so. You can be sure that the battle reports will appear on my blog as soon afterwards as possible.

      All the best,


  2. I am also looking forward to seeing how the battles affect the overall situation Bob

    1. Maudlin Jack Tar,

      An overall French victory would put the Prussians in a poor position, as the French could easily seize Hanover soon afterwards.

      An overall Prussian victory would pretty well put an end to the possibility of a short war, and may even see the French sue for peace.

      A draw would see the war continue, and a possible French invasion via the southern route.

      The possibilities are endless .. which is one of the joys of fighting a campaign!

      All the best,
